EEEHAW! She's pregnant!

Phone call from vet's office this a.m. Sonata's progesterone is 6 - that's a confirmed pregnancy, folks. Remember when the vet was here last week and he couldn't tell for sure with the ultrasound and drew blood? Yippeee, Skippeee! That means 3 spring cria, and 1 September cria. 11 months gestation!

Congratulations! Wow! 11 month gestation period!
Maple, since you know so much about alpacas, I was wondering if you could clarify more about cria fiber. I've heard different things. Something about the fiber that forms in utero being too tender and liable to breakage. And then another thing I heard was about more snarling because they roll much more than the adults. Would love to hear your opinion on this. Thanks! Kim
