Hi everyone! You really must have a look at the video we posted on YouTube today.
The link is www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVJQ8LFNBfs heading 'Alpacas Pronking'
Since little 'Micah' was born on Sunday we have had continual rain here, so we decided to keep both mothers and babies in their field shelter.
As you can see, after 48 hours of incarceration, Lia was bursting with energy.......
Is was a real thrill to see her running and pronking around the paddock and having so much fun.
You may be wondering why she is wearing a green leotard. In actual fact it is a green Vet-Flex we are using in an attempt to heal her umbilical hernia!
If you look carefully, you will be able to see Martina and Micah in the background, who is experiencing freedom for the first time!
As you can see at the end of the video, Lia has gained confidence in us and was happily coming over to the gate to see us, until she was spooked by the dogs. This is probably as result of us handling her on a daily basis.
It is fantastic that we now have two babies born within a month of each other, so they will be able to play and grow up together!
