The first was reasonably straight forward. Pepsi struggled a little with the head (it is a whopper) but a little lube, and repositioning of legs, and a lovely fawn female (sire Waradene St Patrick) was delivered at 11.30 am. She was soon up on her feet, but her suckling technique is a little strange so I am watching her closely.
Next it was Biba (a black female) she is small and has looked uncomfortable for a couple of days, so I have been a little concerned about her birthing. Her waters broke about 12.45 but she really wasn't progressing as she should. Luckily our farmer friend (David) called by just at this point, his expert hands soon corrected the legs and we eased our another St Patrick female...but here's the shock...she looks black...bay black but a black. Maybe she will look dark brown by tomorrow? If not does that mean St Patrick has a secondary black gene that has been hidden...I am sure alpacas just make it up...just when we think we are getting the hang of alpaca colour genetics...we will see!
