Our first alpaca female (a girl from Chile) with our eldest daughter.
This picture was taken a few years back.

Today we scanned the females. They were all pregnant, except the last three. We did expect this... so no disappointment. We collected blood (for progestronlevels). If they are low, we treat the girls with prostaglandines. And mate them five days later (after given Receptal).

We put in the "new ones" from England in our "herd". They really have to adapt to their new situation. The black stud is really a macho. He isn't afraid of anything. Really looking great.
