- She loves to snooze in the sun.
- She is the first alpaca I have given shots to. Actually, she's the only one, human, animal or otherwise, I've ever given shots to.
She stresses out during shearing so much that she prolapsed the year before I met her.
- We had a challenging session the first time I sheared her. So now I keep her nearby all day, then shear her last. When she's last, both she and the crew know what to expect. Because of that change, we had an easier shearing last year.
- She gave birth to our very first cria, Alpacamundo's Augustus.
I decided to give her an extra portion of alfalfa until we could modify all of the fencing. We skipped our plans to go to the Great Western Alpaca Show (GWAS) and embarked upon a day of fence augmentation.
We replaced one run of the existing fencing with the recommended 2" x 4" fabric. Then the weather turned bad. So we quickly moved some panels and set them offset against the existing panels to make smaller openings.
