After watching and waiting all weekend for a couple of cria to be born, and NOTHING!! this morning I looked at the girls and felt the cold air and thought "no today". I went to work and even though I had considered coming home at noon, I didn't. I was sure those cria were not coming today. I picked the kids up from school and they were both eager to hear if we had cria, I was sure we hadn't but said we'll check when we get home.
I arrive home, open the door towards the pasture and see a cria nursing on Cocoa!! I yell to the kids "we have a cria" then I see another cria!! Both Cocoa and Rose had their cria today.
Since every cria is a blessing they will each get their own post. Today's post is about OHVNA Irish Cream.
Dam: RAL Peruvian Cocoa Latte (AKA: Cocoa)
Sire: ARF Our Peruvian Tucker
Cocoa is a medium brown female and Tucker is a classic light silver grey male.
Together they produced a beautiful female:
At this point this female looks to be a light rose grey tuxedo, but she may actually be a silver grey tuxedo (hard to tell with the amniotic staining on the fiber). Only time will tell for sure. But we have had enough grey alpacas at our farm to be sure she's grey!
This picture shows Cherry (the longer fiber suri) with Irish Cream in front and Cocoa nuzzling her:
