It took quite awhile for her to stand up. Below is one of the attempts, but she wasn't successful until about 2 hrs after she was born.

Back to the yarn give away. My birthday is July 25th and my goal is to have at least 150 people signed up for the give away by then, if I don’t have at least that many, I will extend the deadline to Sept. 2nd, my son’s birthday. So please spread the word. How to enter… leave me a comment on this blog and tell me about your first handmade craft project you can remember. Here is mine, I have two sisters (I’m the middle) and my mom was always making something by hand, of course we wanted in on it so we each were given a set of pillow cases to embroidery. I had to be in about the 4th grade, I don’t think I ever finished that project, I took up knitting (4H) instead. Please be sure to leave your name in the comment, check back on July 25th and I will announce the winner and we can iron out the details of where to send the yarn. The yarn will be my choice but will definitely come from one of my alpacas, check out my yarn on ETSY. Be sure to check back often as I will be keeping you up to date on the number of entries. Thanks for playing!
If you have a problem leaving a comment, please convo me on ETSY and I will get your name added.

Her belly doesn't even look that big any more, from this angle, that baby is low and should be popping out soon. Look at the pictures below and she does look bigger. I also got some pictures of Gonzo and Remus doing their job. A lady was walking up the road with her german shepard and they really don't like that. Gonzo was over in the other pasture and heard Remus barking, he is still stiff, I had to give him his doggy asprin this morning. If he thinks there is a threat around he doesn't give any signs that he isn't 110%.

You can see the ropes that are on the front feet and the back feet are on ropes too. The guy standing up is the head guy (not the one in charge) , usually he has a hold of the alpaca by the ears, but in this picture he is moving the fleece away from the body of the animal and its head is between his legs. Then there is the shearer and then the fleece people (that's me) we are putting this fleece on a sheet so the owner can show it in competitions. This was the day we did 72 alpacas!
I have finished my white and red yarn, I have washed it and it is drying. I will have a picture of it very soon. And it will be for sell on ESTY - which by the way I sold my first skein yesterday YAHOO!!
