Macquarie Springs 'Good Chance' certainly lives up to his name! I have a very strong little cria jumping around the paddock and causing havoc amongst all of the pregnant girls - and I am so happy about it (even if the girls are NOT!).
Lucky on the other hand, was almost crippled this week! We noticed her lifting her front knees awkwardly, and after having a quick check, we couldn't see anything wrong with her feet. The next day she rarely moved, was eating where she cushed, and was in obvious pain when she did walk. That night, I looked through our records whilst Hubby looked through the Alpaca 'bible' and he said it could possibly be Vit D deficiency. My records showed her last Vit D in June, and it has been a LONG winter here - of course...poor Alpacas are probably all deficient and we are late to have them sheared this year and so their injections haven't yet been given.
Then, having those two successes to celebrate, we also had 16y.old Son attend his 'Leaver's Dinner' as he finishes school next week and is headed for college next year!
