We had a lovely sunset walk up the hill tonight to check on our gorgeous llama mums and their cute babies.
Three days ago, Reba gave birth to our last cria of the season, Medelia, a lovely strong baby girl, with almost the exact same markings as her mum. Reba is the most amazing of mums. We arrived just minutes after the birth while wet Medelia was still trying to get up. Meanwhile, mum was still in labour, passing the placenta. I think she was in quite a bit of pain, as she was stomping the ground with her legs, something we had never seen her do before. In spite of this, as soon as Medelia made it to her feet and went searching for the teats, Reba moved to help her find them, so the little girl managed a good feed very quickly.
