Western New York Alpaca Show and Praise!!

We have lots of photos and ribbons from the Western New York Alpaca Show, but I have limited time the next couple of days, so hang in there to see more!!

Here is HGA Noah's photo with his blue ribbon, his handler Cody and one of his owners Bonnie.

Here is Dark Knight's Jumpin Jehoshaphat and his handler, Cody, received a third place ribbon
(The color is wrong on the ribbon though in case you were wondering).

We also want to thank you ALL for your wonderful prayers! Lazarus started nursing from his mama, Serena, over the weekend, and he seems to be doing much better. He lost a little weight at first, but the last couple of days, he has remained steady now. Praise the Lord!! :D

Here he is . . .

Our new boy on the farm . . .

Serena finally gave birth Tuesday morning to this little sweetie. We decided to name his Alonzo's Lazarus. Please say a little prayer for our little one though, as he hasn't been nursing from his mama and we are getting ready to go to the alpaca show in Cuba, New York. Bonnie has been bottle feeding him, and unfortunately Leonard will have to take over that job if little Lazarus doesn't soon get the hang of his "mama" has the goods. :)

Thanks for all your well wishes,

Anxiously awaiting

OH my goodness,

Has it been that long since we blogged?! Wow, sorry, gals. Life and work (ok mostly work of some sort) just seems to get in the way.

This fourth of July weekend, we are anxiously waiting for the arrival of Serena's cria. She was due on June 30th, but she still hasn't given up that little one for the rest of us to seeeeee. (can you tell I am mostly the one anxiously waiting?)

Yesterday morning, no signs of labor except a little bit of nostril flaring but maybe that is just because she is uncomfortable and can't stand any of the other alpacas getting too close. Then this morning I peek out at 5:30 a.m. and all the girls are moving about ALREADY, so I don a jacket, head on up to the barn to see "nothing" really going on again. They all look at me like why are you up here so early in the morning?! lol So, I am still patiently waiting (not so patiently). lol

Hugs from Kelly :) for
