We have been on cria watch this past couple of weeks. We had a new
"mommy" bred this year, so we are not always sure how things will go or
how long she will go before giving birth. Pocahontas was bred to one
of our studs named Cyrano. The bred date was 8/20/11. The average
gestation for an Alpaca is 11.5 months. As you can see, she was just
under 11 months. Oh and it is a girl! She weighs 17 lbs. So here are the pics when we first went out after the
thunderstorm this morning, to do chores and check on all of the
critters. I also posted a couple of videos to YouTube. One of them is graphic, as it does show her expelling her afterbirth.
