New Arrivals at Hilly Ridge
At last the girls have been busy.
On the 12th Teresa our white huacaya went into labour and 12 mins later a little white girl was born ! That was quick !
Then the following day Ella decided to follow suit. Now I was excited about this one. Ella was a bit earlier than expected and not one that I thought was going to produce a cria until later in the month. Ella was mated to our black stud Boy Hillend Indie, as Ella was white and Indie is black I got it into my head that this would be dark fawn or brown judging by other cria's born by Indie at other farms.
Then out popped a white nose followed by white feet ! my daughter Emily was here witnessing her first alpaca birth ( in the field in her PJ'S ! ). After lots of EWWWWWWW from Emily and ' White really ? ' comments from me. A few pushes later out pops a huge light fawn male. Wow ! what a cracker he is stunning !
Then today Jessie goes into labour and after a few pushes and a little help out pops another cria by Indie. This time a black male.
Our friend Mark had to sadly have his dog Zeus put to sleep yesterday so breaking with the C theme and tradition slightly, we have named this little man Zeus.
So we have Hilly Ridge China White
