When all is fed and done – baby alpacas being greedy!

It recently came to Tracy’s attention that something unusual was happening with Luna; Duchess’ baby.

She is a happy and healthy baby growing as she should and bouncing around with lots of energy.

Sweet isn’t it?
Luna’s Mum is Duchess!

Only issue is that the alpaca Luna is feeding from in these pictures isn’t Duchess! Hope has not been pregnant this year but has still decided to let Luna feed from her and is producing milk a plenty!

So Luna is feeding from her mum Duchess AND from Hope  – cheeky little girl!

Alpacas have a great sense of community and all the female alpacas are aunties to all the babies.
Being an alpaca mum can be exhausting so they all help each other out when they can. In the photo below Beauty is baby sitting four of the babies born this year whilst…

… Fantasia has a lie down!

We have decided to take some inspiration from the alpacas for this year’s New Year resolutions and eat more and take more naps. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

What are your resolutions?

    Are these the Alpacas that visited Yarndale at Skipton a month or so ago, my wife met an alpaca called ‘Vivien’ which is also her first name and would love to visit the Alpaca and have a photograph taken with it.

    Hi Ed, It wouldn’t have been us unfortunately. We visit Yarndale but only with yarn and patterns. It’s a bit too far for us to take the animals too.
