Featured Alpaca of the Week: Emily

Sweet Emily is a very shy alpaca. She doesn't like to eat pellets from your hand and she's not very sociable. But she is a GREAT mom. She had her first cria in October (Encantadas Jack) and she took to mothering right away. And her fleece is exquisite. Last shearing it measured in at 18 microns (that's Royal Baby) and that was her second shearing. She is a little smaller than Valentina and Sakura. Here's a picture of Emily when she was about a week old:

And here she is right before shearing last year:

We shear this weekend! Look for pictures of the shearing next week!

  1. She is such an adorable alpaca. It is nice to know that she is a good mom too. Even if she isn't the most "human" friendly ... taking care of babies is an important task :)
