Willow's Dirty Little Secret

When we got Willow she was in a large pasture with two alpacas, the carcass of her mother, and her intact father. I knew there was the possibility she was pregnant. I asked my vet if it would be a problem and she thought no. Then I put it out of my mind and brought Willow home. As the months went by I was sure that she wasn't. She didn't look pregnant. Then she started lying down a lot more than usual. That was my first clue. So when the llama lady came over the first thing I ask her was to see if she thought Willow might be pregnant. As the fiber came off there was a good section of her belly exposed so it was easy to see the leg that poked out of Willow's side. The llama lady said sure enough Willow was going to have a baby. Even I was sure when I saw the little llama udder. I asked the llama lady if it was a problem that the father is her dad and she thought no as well. Willow is going to be both mother and sister to this little baby. Now we will never mention it again.

Willow looks very pretty all trimmed. It's great that you discovered the llama lady!

Can you say more about what made the llama lady and her helper so competent around Willow? How did they handle her to do their job so kindly and quickly?

Baby Llama!! The only thing to be concerned about is all the clamor you'll have on your blog from all of us for more pictures.

I had a oops when my baby bull escaped and bred his mother that I had someone try to AI. The baby was beautiful. It's called Line Breeding when you get a beautiful baby. :-)
