Alpaca Babies!

Atlas' First Dance (boy)
Cashew's Cantor (boy)
Atlas' Confetti with her mom Serafina (girl)
Daniel's Devotion (girl)

These babies were all born sometime in the last two weeks or so. So far they are all doing well.  Devotion and Cantor will need some extra watching. Cantor's mom only has a partially functioning udder, and Devotion's mom has an extra teat so she's at higher risk for mastitis.  The extra teat will also make it harder for Devotion to latch on, putting her at risk for not enough milk.

We have more moms ready to go any day now, so as long as the weather stays nice, we should have more soon.
