McKenna was born on Sunday 9th July at 11am, we watched the birth & it all went well, she is McKenzie's first cria, McKenzie is a lovely friendly alpaca & she has made a very good mum. McKenna was up & feeding in an hour or so but was a little slow. She is my favourite of this years cria very cute. She walked with her mum but not on her own for the first 3 days, didn't go off & play with the other babes & spent her time sitting, so I spent time sitting watching her & talking to her, as sitting on their own & not running off when you approach at this age in very unusual. On day 3 she started to run around just like all the others & has done ever since, yesterday when we let them out into a new paddock McKenna was definitely the fastest. She is a gentle cria, has a beautiful face, all curls & is always at the front to be first at the gate to see me.

Cinder was born on July 2nd at 8.45 & was up & feeding within the hour. She is not at all like her big brothers Firefly, Dragonfly & Ember who are very calm & not bothered about anything & does not look like them they are grey & brown. Cinder does look alittle like her mum Orch & sister Butterfly but doesn't make squeaky noises like Butter who we do call Squeaky. Cinder is very inquisitive but a little apprehensive so I hope over the next month or so when we halter train her she will gain some more confidence.
