2016 babies

August 27, 2016  Finally!  Mercedes delivered a sweet tiny 15 pound girl today and that wraps up the 2016 birthing season. Her dad is Bull and she looks great. Congratulations to Kathy and Kris on your first baby girl! Her name is Flavia and her one floppy ear is just about the cutest thing ever! flavia7

 

August 18, 2016  We have another baby. 🙂 O  M  G, is he cute or what?  Smiley made a mini me … with the help of General Patton of course. 19 pounds, and one of the most vigorous babies we’ve seen this year. It will be easy to tell that these two belong together.  His name is Lincoln.  We might just need to leave that beard on at shearing next year. 😉smileys.boy

I smile every time I look at this face! joker

August 8,2016  Selena delivered a most handsome boy today! 22.2 pounds! His dad is General Patton and that is what shines through this boy so clearly. He is owned by Andrea and she has decided his name will be Granada. Congratulations!selena.baby

August 7, 2016 We have another new baby! Madeline decided to wait until after our open house on Saturday and delivered a sweet baby girl Sunday afternoon.  She’s perfect and looks a lot like Madeline’s first daughter Zariah.  Madeline is one of our best moms, very protective, always attentive and she has abundant milk. 18.6 pounds and Silver Lake is her dad! Her name is Mavis.Madeline.baby

July 18, 2016 Two more babies arrived today! Lola and Marcella delivered their babies about one hour apart. You can easily see who belongs to who! Lola’s gray boy was sired by our gray herd sire SilverLake and Marcella’s girl was sired by our white herd sire Stetson. Congratulations to Andrea who is thrilled with her new gray alpaca! Marcella’s baby has been named Gracie.  We’ll let you know Lola’s boy’s name as soon as we hear it. lola.marcella.babies

July 13, 2016 Three babies in three days!  We have another daughter for Miranda and SilverLake! I can’t tell if she is dark gray, or black but she has the white face of the gray pattern and I will look more closely at her fleece today. Her fleece has amazing crimp and softness already and I am thrilled. She weighed in at exactly 18.2, just like her half sister born the day before. Her name is Maybelline.mirandas.girl

July 12, 2016 Our second cria arrived today, and the first baby we’ve seen from our herdsire SilverLake. She is perfect! Minnie is a great mom and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this little gray girl. We have 18.2 pounds of delicate feminine beauty here. Her name is Jubilee.

Jubilee was a short-lived treasure at Blue Moon as she passed away on July 17. RIP sweet girl.lake-daughter
