Baby Surprise

Do you think this post is going to be about a Baby Surprise Jacket? NOPE! Even better. A REAL baby surprise.

A few weeks ago my dad's wife walked out into the pasture and had a big surprise - she found something that she had no idea was even baking.


Meet the latest addition to the farm!!



Isn't she so cute?? She looks like he is wearing a little mask. How would you like to walk out into your pasture one day and see this cutie? This makes the second baby surprise. There was another baby surprise last year. Obviously, it is difficult to tell when alpacas are pregnant if you don't plan it and can't get too close to them! Little Miss Thing needs a name so write in with your suggestions!!! If we pick your name I'll mail you some sort of fancy surprise.

Here's a happy goat:




This brings up another point. My dad's wife, Gale, wants to swap out her male alpaca. She just wants to do an even swap with someone else for an equal type of male alpaca simply to expand the forks of the alpaca tree. He is about 4ish years old and has already (ahem) proven his virility. The male she has is the grey one in the photo above. Here's a better picture of him.




If you have a male alpaca you would be willing to swap (this alpaca is located in GA) or if you know of someone who might be interested please email me at theknitwitch@gmail.com and I can get you hooked up with her to discuss more details about the swap.

Here's the house progress. It's coming right along! I guess I am added for scale in the second picture.

Carlotta or Christine - when I saw her I thought of Phantom of the Opera - her face looks like she has a mask on!

My mom thought she was a llama when I showed the picture. She wanted to name her "Obllama"! LOL!

I like her little white mask. How about "Bonnie" from the daring crime duo Bonnie and Clyde?

How about Luna? It's Italian for moon and the black body and (mostly) white face is like a full moon in dark night sky. She's beautiful!
