Wow! what gorgeous weather we’ve been having. The alpacas are loving it, especially as they were shorn a few weeks ago, just as the hot weather appeared. How was that for timing, happy days, I love it when a plan works out 🙂
Shearing all done and a very welcome visit from the skirting fairy the following day to help me, skirt and prepare some show fleeces, all made for a very enjoyable few days. Everything is so much more fun when the sun is shining 🙂
All that was left, was to eagerly await the arrival of the first cria of the year. I didn’t have to wait too long, on Thursday Truly Scrumptious gave birth to her first cria, Grace.
Not only was Grace, Truly’s first cria it was also her sire, our very own supreme champion, Angelo’s first offspring to hit the ground.
Was I excited? I was dancing, really dancing!!!! 🙂
This was a match made in heaven.
Truly and Angelo both have award wining, amazing fleeces, and already you can see in Grace the characteristics from both her parents, especially Angelo’s shine and greasy feel. You guessed it I’m still dancing, I’ve waited three years for this little girl 🙂
How bad am I? All I want to do now is fast forward to next shearing day.
This is so going to be a fleece to watch for. Hence her name, I couldn’t leave it at just Grace could I? She had to have the Amazing as a prefix, cause she is just so Amazing! 🙂
Even all her aunties thought so and wanted to hide her and keep her all to themselves 🙂
