Birthday girls!

My blogging has been rubbish again, there are just not enough hours in the day, or night for that matter!

On the day of my last blog Paul was on his way down to Bozedown Alpacas with a couple of girls for mating and whilst he was there he managed to buy me a birthday present or two, or four!  I was slightly hopeful that he'd taken notice of my last blog (where Alison had an alpaca for her birthday; happy birthday today Alison!) because the dividing gate had been placed in the trailer before his departure.

He eventually arrived home safely some 16 hours later with Cara and Divinity (who he left with) and two new Comet daughters and their female cria.  They are very nice and settling in to life on our Northumbrian hillside.

In the middle we have Angelic, to the left her cria and to the right Masquerade's cria. 


Masquerade's cria

Having been wormed and today been vet checked tomorrow they will be allowed out into their isolation field to taste our grass.

Whilst here Sam, the vet was admiring Boulevarde; you can't help but admire him he's fantastic!

Since my last blog Pressure hasn't produced and not has Marne; Marne is now on 399 days.  Has anyone gone longer than that with a positive outcome?  We had one girl Mary go 14 months but as I'd not actually mated her I've always been skeptical.
