     So the very short version of the whole mad story- I have two surprise alpaca crias!

Miss Pixie Popper's Baby Boy

Miss Jodikin's Baby Girl

Two strutting through the pasture with his family. He is finally the herd sire he always thought he was destined to be! He's so happy with his big new family, all these exotic women he has found for himself and all his new offspring ;)

Jodsie's with her baby (ignore the tuft of fluff on her neck, the shearer went mad for a moment).

Jodi's baby girl nursing WITHOUT help! This was a big victory, and I have spent the last day and half restraining mama every two hours for baby to nurse. Jodi was not the best mommy in the world right off, but she is getting there.

Pixie IS the best momma in the world! Here she is getting ready to attack a cat for getting too close to the babies! She has been super-momma from the moment her little boy hit the ground. He was born blind, and she followed him around and squatted her udder at his head for him to nurse and not need to 'find' her. Luckily he can fully see now, and is a happy pronking little wild man!
Pixie has also been nursing Jodi's baby when Jodi is being a butt and I am not getting there quick enough to hold her for the hungry baby. There is not much funnier then Pixie standing with two little brown butts sticking out from either side, both tiny tails just wagging like mad.  


  1. Happy News!!! They are beautiful. Congratulations!!!!

  2. Glad all are doing well. My heart stopped for a moment when I thought the little boy was blind. Have you named them yet?

  3. I was so relieved when he started seeing, it was wonderful! No names yet, I'm terrible at that. Beth suggested Rose and Bud, which I love but I have a Rosie cat and that could get confusing!
