Catching up

Since I came back from Norway I have had to deal with many things. Jet lag never helped either !!

I came back to home a very sick Alpaca. I spent the last week 1/2 looking after him as best I could. He had menengial worm and the out look is pretty bleak with this. I did everything possible to help him through this. Sadly the cure is what took his life. He was on banimine every day and it was to hard on his kidneys. We gave him some gastroguard so he would not get ulcers but in the end he had renal failure because his kidneys shut down. I am so very sad because Dillon had a great future ahead of him as a breeding boy and he was also one of my favorite alpacas because he was so sweet.

We also had a cria born last Wednesday. Not the ideal time of year to be born if you are an Alpaca. She was born on the coldest day in 4 years. She spent her first night in my family room with me :-) She is now doing well with her mom in the barn.Her name is Crystal

With Dillon needing a lot of looking after and the new baby not a lot of time for updates. I will update the blog with pups in their new home pictures too. The pups are all doing well and growing like weeds.

Life is busy living with 2 pups and 3 adults too!
