Welcome back to the spring show season! We are looking forward to a very exciting time! We have for the very first time an alpaca in the “Bred and Owned Yearling” class. We are very excited to finally have an alpaca that qualifies for this class. We are hoping “Galaxy” does a good job.
We also have 5 juveniles that we will be showing. Their first show will be The Best of the US. Hopefully, they will remember all the training they received at home and walk like nice young ladies and gentlemen in the show ring! The judges usually are very understanding of the young participants.
On Thursday, we had a beautiful dark brown cria born! Healthy and happy, we found her pronking on the pasture! She does not have a name yet. We often let classmates have a say in the naming process. Her herdsire, GLR Colque, is a wonderful silver grey. We have been very pleased with all of his offspring. The mom is very protective of her cria, but allows us to weigh her baby when we need to. We have a few more crias coming this fall!
