We have some very exciting news!!! Our amazing Alpaca 'Blue' (pictured) has welcomed her first baby early this morning on Thursday 9th May 2024. Weighing 8.12kg, we have our first Cria named Spitfire. Already, Spitfire has been running around the field, taking in the warming glow of the sun (plus having some well-needed naps) as well as having lots of cuddles with his mum - Blue. We look forward to seeing Spitfire grow with the rest of the herd and can't wait to welcome more baby Crias in the upcoming months ..read more
