Two Flags Alpacas
We were also training Cliffy, Nelson and Hayley in preparation for showing at the Virginia show in early March however the show was cancelled due to bad weather and by the time it was re-scheduled it was too late for our guys as they had been sheared.
In April, May and June this year, 2015, we have had 3 more cria born. 2 girls, Hazel and Magnolia and a boy, Bodie. Bodie did not have a very good start to his life. His mother did not get the mother bit and seemed to ignore him. He got dehydrated and had diarhea so we whisked him off to University of Goargia Vet school, where he stayed for around 6 days. when he came home he was on antibiotics and was doing well until for some reason our dog, Cooper, got into the pasture and attacked him which caused him to lose his left eye. We have him back with us now and we are pleased to say he is doing really well. He is a special animal as he has what is called wrinkle skin which is a sign of extremely fine and dense fiber which we are really excited about.
We will be training Hazel, Magnolia and Bodie in the hopes that we will be showing them in Virginia this coming spring. We are also intending to show Cliffy and Nelson at the Royal Alpaca Challenge this coming November.
