THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! BLENCOGO FARM ALPACA CRACK!


We have skinny alpacas! We’ve spent the last few weeks telling visitors that they mustn’t laugh AT them but WITH them - one German lady was literally doubled up with tears streaming down her cheeks! Our little brown boy Barnaby has been left with the cutest pompom of fluff on his tail. It makes me smile every time I see it. We also have lots and lots of gorgeous fleece all bagged up and sitting in our hallway; some will go to a mill and be processed into alpaca yarn and some will be sold. That’s one of the biggest jobs of the year done but it isn’t the most exciting…. that would be the birth of a new baby.


We have welcomed Flick, a female cria who was delivered at eye-watering speed by first-time Mum, Lucky Star. It was a wet Saturday and I was checking our mum-to-be every 20 minutes. She had been under close observation for several days due to continual groaning and rolling. Lucky was enormous and it didn’t take a genius to work out birthing was close. However, she still took me by surprise and I almost missed the birth! When I checked at 1.20pm nothing new was happening. When I went out again at 1.40pm the head and legs were out. By 1.55pm we had a live cria on the ground.


The following 24 hours were a bit stressful and we needed a visit from the vet. Lucky needed painkillers and antibiotics as a result of the speedy delivery. It took a little longer than usual

for Mum and baby to bond and for Flick to start feeding but they succeeded and we have a lively cria frolicking around the paddocks annoying all the other grown-ups.


Flick is a beautiful white alpaca with bright, curly fleece and Lucky Star is proving to be an excellent Mum. I am not ashamed to say that many of my daylight hours are spent up the field just enjoying the view… and trying to decide if our other maiden called Newsflash is actually expecting, or whether it’s just wind!
