We are proud to announce a 15 lb female cria born at 6:45 this morning!

When I checked in at 5:00 AM there was no sign of an impending birth. When Dave got
up around 6:45 he noticed all the alpacas hovering around in a circle. Alaurea had just given birth!
We quickly got the others into the adjoining pen so mom and cria could bond. We got the new baby cleaned
up and watched to assure both were healthy.

This is Alaurea’s 6th cria and she is an awesome mom. In fact, her last girl, CeCe, was born on this day
THREE years ago!

It’s our very FIRST birth here at Kave Rock Farm so we are overjoyed watching each tiny milestone. The wobbly legs
and unsteady gait make us laugh. She has already attempted running only to be stopped by a fence she didn’t notice!
Luckily she bounces back well!

We’ve had 11 1/2 months to think of names but she doesn’t fit the choices we had. She’s is still unnamed
so feel free to send us suggestions!DSC_0474
