A catch up with Rita Soares of Campo Verde Alpacas, hearing about the work that has been done on the farm since we spoke ( )

As well as a lot of fencing, there have been some cria births recently. This inlcuded a difficult birth with a jameed-up leg.

With the advice from her alpaca connections, her partner Anthony and careful persistence, it all worked out well and with the safe arrival of a male cria.

Preaparation, learning and being flexible in the moment - all part of life with alpacas.
