|All the baby alpacas born at Mayfield this year|
Ester was born on Wendesday 13th June to Esmeralda. She weighed 14lbs at birth. She has very distinctive markings on her face, with a little splash of brown among the white.
Ester has already made good friends. Here she is with Ollala, born less than a week before her.
It was difficult trying to get a picture of both mother and cria together.
Ollala was born on Friday 8th June to Olivia. She weighed 16lbs at birth. Here she is having a little rest.
Gonzalez was born on Friday 1st June to Grizelda. He weighed 13lbs at birth.
His mother looks very proud of him!
Zabel was born on Wednesday 23rd May - the same day as Petra - to mother Zanka.
There is no mistaking the family resemblance with their colouration!
Petra was born on Wednesday 23rd May to Pelusa. She has a lovely brown colouring.
She seems to have a big smile on her face here. And who wouldn't in such lovely surroundings?
Sanchez was born on Thursday 17th May to proud mother Sophie.
As you can see, he's a very curious fellow, and not at all camera shy. And he's the apple of his mother's eye!
The first new cria of this year was Francesca. Here you can see her having a well-earned rest in the sun. And so soon after birth she is still unsteady on her feet, so needs to lean on mum Forsythia from time to time!
Francesca was born at 1:35pm on 26th April 2007, weighing 16lb. She is light fawn in colour.
