Cria Watch Continues

Cria Watch continues as the last few pregnant alpacas hold out for good weather. They are OK at the immediate and very near weather forecasting but the longer range is more of a challenge and the lovely fine sun has given way to heavy showers and lower temperatures.

We have some coats to protect the cria in their first few days and nights so they have been coming in handy. The best we have found for new born are made my Mary Roach and have a good covering of the underneath belly area as well as the top.

The dynamic in the herd is being fascinating to observe and I continue to be amazed at just how relaxed they are, It may be that we have not had visitors due to the Covid-19 Lockdown.

As the pandemic lockdown starts to be eased it brings with it the challenge of how to offer safe visits for everyone and to try to keep the alpaca businesses going. Challenging times, We also need to decide what kind of future we want to create. It is not going to be easy but we can rise to the challenge and bring creativity to bear.
