Introducing Masika – baby alpaca number 2 of 2016!
Born on on the stormy and wet morning of Wednesday the 8th of June, this little bundle of white alpaca fluff was born. He is the second cria of the year and is the son of Fantasia. His big sister is Louisianna and she is sniffing his head in the picture trying to work out who this little creature is! I’m sure they will be having loads of fun running round the fields together very soon!
I wasn’t quite sure what to name the little one, and after Kari-Helene posted his photo on Facebook, the suggestions kept coming in! There were so many wonderful names to choose from, and in the end I opted for Masika. It’s an Egyptian name meaning “born during rain” and it is very suited to this little fella!
This weekend is the annual shearing and seeing as we also have the Cambridge Town and Country Show we shall be very busy! We’ll be back with pictures of skinny alpacas next week!
Lots of love from Tracy and the alpacas xxx
