Did someone want to see pictures?
She's wearing a cria coat since it is still a bit chilly overnight here. This is actually the first time or so that she had been out of the barn. She is getting the hang of walking but she doesn't quite get the concept of fences and tends to walk into them a lot. Also, since her eyesight is developing, sometimes it is hard to find Marmalade's udder, but that is getting better.
Oh, you want to know her name?
So here's the backstory: Ann and Cindy sold Marmalade to someone who is just starting a farm about a month or two ago, so that new owner got to name the cria. So please do not judge any of my alpaca friends for this name.
I started calling her "Rosie" in my head immediately because I don't like that name. She actually is quite a good Rosie, with her pink face.
Ann has her in a pen with her mama, Georgia (who is due any day), and two of the calmer girls, Lacie and Chanel. She'll slowly introduce the other girls as Rosie gets a bit stronger. The ladies are very interested in their new herdmate (who will only be there about a month).
It's so exhausting being a baby alpaca.
Marmalade is in the purple bandana in these pictures. In the top picture, Georgia is on the left in the turquoise bandana and Lacie (Black Lace) is on the right. In the lower picture, you can see Chanel (no bandana) on the right.
Ann uses bandanas to quickly spot the pregnant girls.
I just should not do knit alongs, as I am woefully behind on Kimono Moon. The lace pattern is apparent, but I messed with the lighting and now it is hard to see. Sorry.
That's all from here for now! I go to the dentist for a cleaning and to hopefully get the extraction (ick) arranged (thank you Kathy B for being so positive about the extraction and implant).
