Day 18: Something New

Thank you for all your wonderful comments from my last post. I love to see all the support for knitting and fiber arts out there. I guess I was bitter because I had to agree with her just to end the conversation.  I feel much better now :)
 
 
Day 18: Something New
 
A new cria was born this morning at the farm!
 
We named him Mr. Bates. Yes like Mr. Bates from Downton Abbey.
 
 
The welcoming committee came over to say hi.
 

Swag is very happy to have a new buddy. My mom said he spent the morning right next to Maggie looking at her rear like he was waiting for his new friend.


 

 
He was up and walking so fast! After the ordeal with Swag and the splints and the not walking, nursing.... it was so nice to see him up and about so fast. 


It didn't take him long to find the milk bar. Woo hoo all on his own.


 
My sister brought him in to get weighed. His mom Maggie is doing a great job so far.





 
And in other news Swag is running around the field like crazy. Isn't he so cute.

 
Oh and Blue said I don't blog about him enough so here are some pictures of him.
 
 
Sheering day is quickly approaching and I can't wait to have his fiber! It will be the first time I will have his fleece and I can't wait to turn it into yarn.  Oh what will I knit?

My youngest son, the Beast (three years old), saw the pictures of Blue and exclaimed, "Alpaca! With Chewbacca legs!"

They are all really so cute -- I just love their faces. So much expression (well, this human thinks so.)
