Introducing Malachi

Whenever we are at shows, a lovely young lady called Ella looks after my alpacas.  I had a day off on Sunday to drive to Southend on Sea for my niece’s BBQ.  It was a lovely afternoon and I just had time to arrive, have a few hugs and chat to some people before a text came from Ella saying she had good news; Dusty had given birth and the baby looked fine.

When a new baby is born, I have to spray the umbilical cord so that it is sealed against flies or parasites and the birthing kit was in the back of our van, Bessie.  With a hasty goodbye, I drove back to the farm and met a beautiful baby boy who I’m going to call Malachi (Mala-kye).  Bearing in mind, his father is George (light fawn) and Dusty is light brown, Malachi’s colour is such a surprise as it’s a beautiful rich dark brown with a hint of red.  So here he is, a week early and what a sweetie!

Mother and baby are doing really well and Malachi’s a real cutie!

That’s the latest update from the alpaca field. We have quite a few babies on the way this year, so there will be plenty more cute photos over the next months. Stay tuned!

Lots of love, Tracy and the alpacas xxx
