See what happens when we go away for 4 or 5 days?  A baby alpaca arrives at our neighbours' farm and I miss all the excitement!

We left here on Thursday morning bound for Switzerland.  Eric's niece was getting married on the Friday and then we had a few more days of celebrating before coming home on Monday.  But that's the subject of another post - this one's about alpacas!

Here she is (yes, it's a girl so I'll have to wait a bit longer for my boy) :-

Isn't she a cutie?  She was born on Saturday morning, 9th August.  She's a light fawn colour, not many shades darker than white.

She hasn't quite got used to those long legs yet!

Now all she needs is a playmate!  Oh, and a name.  Hope Tammy and Rob don't take two weeks again to name her.  This year's babies will all begin with a B, and they've had lots of suggestions so far, from Backpacka (!) to Bijou to Blondie and beyond.  Brigitte Bardot maybe?  Bria the Cria?  Well, there's quite a list so we'll just have to wait and see what they decide.


  1. Gratuluję ! 9 sierpnia to fajny dzień, też się tego dnia urodziłam, dlatego małej alpace życzę szczególnie fajnego życia !

    Congratulations! August 9 is a cool day, or that day I was born, so a small alpaca wish particularly nice life!

    Pozdrawiam serdecznie

    Yours sincerely


    1. Hope you had a nice birthday! And thank you for the good wishes.
