Our second arrival - JandJ Layla
Had a very busy weekend. We had a whole day of shearing last month, shearing 37 alpacas in day. Yesterday Sandra the shearer came back & we had 44 of our own left to shear & 5 alpaca boys which we have sold in the past coming back for shearing. Amazingly 40 were shorn on Saturday leaving just 10 for Sunday morning.
Poppy was due on Friday & by Saturday was really unsettled, we thought that perhaps a cria was imminent but I think that the rainy weather put her off. This morning though it was bright & sunny so a perfect day to have a cria & sure enough at 9.21am Poppy gave birth to a beautiful fawn girl we have named Layla. She is a little unsteady on her feet, earlier on she leaned on me & promptly fell over :)
