Fall Crias Are a-Comin!!!

Fall Crias Are a-Comin at Epic AlpacasThe Fall crias started in October, with Cassie being born to Emily, then we had a month long pause while all the girls decided to clam up and keep their babies to themselves. Cassie is doing great and putting on tons of weight and is a bundle of energy (with some amazing crimpy fiber). Today, while going through a couple breedings to our new grey herdsire, Cinco, we noticed our guard llama, Tina, was in some distress. We checked her out to find that she was in labor and the little cria’s head was out, but no feet!

2013 Histograms Are In!!!

2013 HistogramsWe’re assembling the data for the 2013 reports and they’ll get posted this week. AT the top of the list were a couple of our grey “futures” with herdsire Socrates pulling in great numbers with an AFD of 17.7, SD of 4.2, >30 at 0.6% and a Mean Curvature of 49.5. Lady Greyknight, one of our yearling grey girls, gave us an AFD of 17.5 with an SD of 4.1, >30 of 1.2% and a Mean Curvature of 43.1. Those two will be making some beautiful babies together in the coming years!
