Alpaca & Muscovy

Behold a son – draught foal no 3 born at Kensmyth Alpaca, Clay Meadow

Well the weather has been something to behold and our new bornĀ  foal was literally kept under raps. Well done to our black draught mare who managed this chunky monkey on her own.

Reasons why you need to be on site with your animals – if you look closely – see where the foals head is and the fluid he is in.. without immediate attention from the too tired mare unable to give it, he could have drowned without my intervention

Apart from the foal being born head first into his amniotic fluid and the bag needing breaking by my good self pretty quickly – the text book birth and 7 am too!

gorgeous mare and foal but he will be much lighter chestnut when he dries out – well done girl!
