It's a Boy! Again!

It was another exciting morning at the farm.  Star had her cria (baby) this morning.   He is a healthy little boy and again when I was at the farm he didn't have a name yet. He was born less than five minutes before we arrived. 

The baby that was born the other day name is Reno in honor of my friend Anna who lives in Reno. Haa no that is a lie, but Anna you are welcome to tell people my parents named an alpaca in your honor.  Actually it is a really long name that I don't know how to spell yet and his nickname is Reno. It is very fitting because his father's name is Nevada.

Okay enough write and time for pictures. 
This is the little guy born this morning without a name.


his mamma is making him nice for his first appearance into the pen...

he is a little shaky on those long legs but he is getting the whole walking thing figured out. i think he was less than two hours old when I was taking these pictures....





Aunt Geneva came over to visit. She is expecting a baby too. They are hoping for a girl so think pink.

first pee...

a family photo- on left Wea, Star and Baby. Star had Wea last year. Wea came over to take a peek at her little brother.  Star also has another son on the farm, Ox. He is my favorite. I hope this little guy is like Ox.


All the girls came over to check out the new guy as he strutted his stuff.

Again my parents farm is still closed to the public to give the girls a chance to bond with their babies.

Baby Reno is just too cute yesterday he let the boys pet him and he gave us all kisses.  It was the first time I ever got to pet a cria I was so excited I can't even tell you.  I usually have the boys with me and the momma alpacas do not want us anywhere near their little ones.  So to have that moment was amazing.  Spicy is apparently getting used to the whole momma thing and doesn't know she has to protect her little one.  She is also being difficult nursing.

But Star is an excellent mother and I am surprised she even let me take pictures of her little one. She was giving me lots of dirty looks. I had to keep telling her I wasn't go to go near him.  She didn't look convinced, but I made it out of the pen without getting spit on.

LOL! What a cute little guy! If my legs were that long when I was born, I'd have trouble walking, too!

Gasp! He is EXQUISITE. Seriously, I think I'm in love. Sigh. I hope to have alpacas someday. This makes me hope for them even more.
