Shima arrived today. Her name is Navajo for "mother." This Mothers' Day little lady is a huacaya alpaca. Her mama is Yzma, a Canadian female.
I gazed out into the pasture and there was a "circle" of aunties sniffing and nudging the newest arrival to the herd. They truly have a welcoming committee -- as long as the mama will allow it.
Ben carried the new alpaca up to the barn. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and I don't want Shima's hardy mama to just sit in the rain -- with baby getting soaked.
She is a lovely little girl -- and a wonderful Mothers' Day surprise.
