Last year on July 5th it was 75 degrees. I must have thought it would always be so balmy in the Lou. So I bred my prize female alpaca, Lumina, to my prize male alpaca, Buddy.
And here we are 11 1/2 months later -- right on her due date -- and Lumina delivered a sparkling white female cria.
This little gal is gorgeous. Her fleece shimmers in the sunlight.
Luckily my granddaughters were here today to see the newborn out in the pasture. I couldn't resist taking photos of them with the new cria.
Congratulations to my Lumina -- my prize winning girl -- and to Buddy -- my prize winning boy.
