A Rural Thursday Blog Hop #13

I had something completely different planned for today!
We're switching things up today because yesterday was amazing.
My little fingers are typing so fast,
I want to remember and include every single detail of my adventure.

sent me a message that two alpaca mother's at edel haus farm 
had given birth, that day!
My mission was to see them yesterday,
when they were only one day old.

Mission accomplished!!

When the hubs and I pulled up at the farm,
the owners John and Audrey were not around.
We parked and got out but now there was a big fence
between me and pure joy.
I could see the babies but I wouldn't be able to get too close.

Within about two minutes John came flying across the field
and I knew I was in for the treat of a lifetime!!

Enough with all this talking, let's get to the good stuff, pictures.
I took 302.
haha, no, I'm not going to show you all of them!!

Meet baby boy White Russian, with his jet black mom.
John said the odds of this happening are about one in a million.

My first sighting of Fibonacci with his mom!!

They are just too sweet for words...

I was able to hold White Russian,

and I carried him in to the scale house so he could be weighed.
He is 14 pounds today, he was 15 when he was born.
John and Audrey said that happens sometimes.

I probably spent an hour with all the alpaca's.
The babies really loved me, but they stick close to mom.

Alpaca kisses,

 they are all very protective of the little ones.

Welcome to the world, White Russian

and  Fibonacci
and thanks for spending time with me today,
it was amazing!!

oooohhhh and Iris is Pregnant, she is due any day.
I got to see and feel the baby kicking!!

So this is what's happening in my neck of the woods.
I'm sharing today with
Please visit Nancy at A Rural Journal
and Lisa at Two Bears Farm

Think about hoping in and hoping around!!

A p.s. share with Clytie at Random Hearts
