♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Barn Romance Update.
We think that Celeste (above alpaca) is pregnant! Last Tuesday Russ, our vet, was out and drew blood from Celeste and Ariana to check their progesterone level. The test is definitely not a 100% guarantee of pregnancy, which I'm not going to take the time to discuss right now. But Celeste's came back at 2.4, which should/could be a postive. EEEHAW!
But Ariana's was .0 So, back to orgling and breeding this a.m. Handsome Alde didn't mind a bit and did his thing for 20 minutes, until Ariana rolled over on her side. Guess she was tired of the whole ordeal. We will wait three days and put them together again.
I'm taking Cassie (Golden) and Max (Sheltie) to the groomer this a.m. I would rather wash 2 horses than 1 dog. Red (rescue, mixed breed) will go at a different time. All of them really love to go and are quite proud when they come home. They always get a new scarf that they like to show off.

Ohhhhhhhh little babies!!!! How exciting. Celeste is going to have to keep up. My yorkie, Katie Scarlet, goes to the groomer today. Man does she need it. I'll have a new, fiesty baby this afternoon.

Congrats!! We'll want to see lots of baby pics eventually... (What is the gestation period for an alpaca??)

11 months, good grief! That's a long time to be pregnant. :)

I wish I did live closer to you - I would love to meet your alpacas! Re: weaving help, if you don't already have "Learn to Weave" by Deborah Chandler, track it down - it's a wonderful book - very clear instructions on warping, planning projects, etc., she's a wonderful teacher - would love to take a workshop with her someday...
