First Cria born of 2012

Such a nice sunny day on Monday April 9th.  I went to work on carding some fleece for the upcoming sheep festival this coming weekend and was looking out the window as I work watching the alpacas, when I thought I seen legs hanging out of Champagne.  I dropped what I was doing, ran out to the pasture to find she was having her baby.  New mom and a month early. 
It is a girl only 11.4lbs at birth and all seemed well.  A little weak as this is the normal with premies.  She and the new mom and bonding well and nursing.
