No cria today either! It was a lovely day even though it started out rainy, and it looks like it may rain again tonight. Hopefully Bella will have the cria this coming week!
Today was the final day of the MN Alpaca Expo. Lars was a hit at our stall! He is very friendly.
Bella had placed third in her class for her fleece.
Unfortunately, Lars did not get a ribbon. :-(
It is okay. He was in a group of nice looking rose gray juveniles. We got to talk to one of the judges after the show and his only critique was that Lars wasn't as dense, and that there were others that had finer (thinner) fiber. Hopefully we'll improve on that once he gets his cria fleece off. (The cria fleece still has the fiber that he was born with.) We are excited to see what his fleece will look like come this fall. On the plus side, Lars was very well-behavied in the ring, and stood and acted just like he was supposed to!
After the Expo, Lars got to come home to the farm just outside of town. He is already making friends!
All the girls love him!
We'll keep you posted about Bella!
