Alpaca & Muscovy

Reasons to be on site with Alpaca, Kensmyth, Clay Meadow

I am often asked by potential Alpaca owners why you absolutely need to be on site for their care, not only for birthing but all the time. Alpaca hide illness and look like “all is well” when you walk into the paddocks. If you do not know what “normal” is for each individual Alpaca by being there and spending time with them in general day to day care – you will never know when they are ill or need help birthing… cria drop is very often not straightforward…

yes – take a closer look at this birth and work out precisely what happened and why both mother and cria would have died had I not been there!!
