Our third and final cria for 2021 arrived on June 24 at about 1:25 PM. Kathy and Jay were off the farm that day, but fortunately daughter, and experienced alpaca midwife, Julia, was on site to ensure a smooth delivery! Louie Louie (from the unintelligible Kingsmen tune) weighed in at 15.5 lbs and was standing and nursing in short order, and then even running after only a few hours. That is not a typical activity for the day you are born! He is a beautiful light fawn color and according to Kathy looks rather like a lightly toasted marshmallow. Louie is the son of our herdsire BGF Poseidon Isaac's Matoskah and Sugar Hollow's Tiny Dancer. Dancer is the daughter of our Champion herdsire Snowmass King Leonidus. This is our second breeding of a Leo daughter to Matoskah and we are very pleased with the results!
