Ok, so we are hoping for Alpaca babies (crias) in the next few months here. If Blossom is pregnant, she would be due around the first/second week of May. If Josie is pregnant, then she'd be due around the first week of June. I took a picture of Blossom about a month ago (see above/left) and the one above/right is from today. I feel like she is hanging lower in the belly. Alpacas apparently don't really "show" like other animals. But I'm guessing we'd see something?? I guess time will tell.
In June of 2011, my husband, three of our five children, our Black Lab (Blue) and our four inside cats (Freak, Fizzle, Rusty, and Bella) and three rabbits (Luna, Midnight and Winchester) have been living at our 1.3 acre farmhouse. We’ve been working on converting the land back to a farm. Since moving here, we’ve acquired a Great Pyrenees (Ollie), a number of outside kitties, a handful of goats, a couple sheep, a couple alpacas and bees/chickens are scheduled to arrive Spring of 2013. We also planted a number of fruit trees on the property (and plan to add a few more) and have been working on putting in gardens to grow as much of our own food as possible. We certainly aren’t experts in any of this, please join our adventure as we muddle through becoming farmers, beekeepers, shepherds and more.
