Our first baby alpaca (cria) of the season was born this week. He's beautiful and oh so energetic. He likes chest butting his mother and jumping on her back when she's laying down. He's quite the trouble maker in the female herd. Without any other babies arriving until fall, I'm afraid he'll find lots of ways to play and amuse himself that won't exactly endear him to the big girls.
He needs a name! His sire's name is Jumpin' Jack Flash and his mother is Odyssey's Morning Star. We've been calling him Cowboy since he sports a nice saddle on his back and we have to call him something, but we need some help! The last time we just called an animal something out of necessity, we ended up calling her Little Sister and it's stuck! Not quite an elegant or memorable name for registered breeding stock.
Suggestions? Should we have a contest?
