Checking Out the New Baby

Today I stuffed the family into the van and drove to my friend Kristi's alpaca ranch to see her new baby. "ooooooh." Really, crias are just so darned cute. This cria, who hasn't been named yet, is the baby of a rather old Momma alpaca, and Momma is not producing milk. So Kristi is the surrogate Mom, bottle feedng Junior every two hours. I offered to babysit, but Kristi says that since Junior isn't getting his nutrients from his Mom, he isn't building up his immunity, so she has to be really careful about letting Junior hang out with his admirers.
