Sweet Harmony's Henry

Posted 8/3/2009 11:38am by Mona Kennedy.

We are first and foremost an alpaca farm, and we are always excited when we can blog about the alpacas.  Yesterday we drove up to Longwoods Alpacas in Maine to welcome our newest cria, Sweet Harmony’s Henry, whom we will call Hank.  On our farm we love ‘the boys’ and little Hank is no exception.

Hank is our second cria from our beautiful girl Longwood’s Caitlin’s Alana.  He was sired by the Upper Farm’s stunning Milo Rawhide.  Hank weighed in at a sturdy 17.5 pounds, very straight legs and bite, and perfect conformation.  His fleece is shiny and soft, dark brown in color with black points, with a teeny white spot on his front fetlock.  He appears to have both his parent’s density.  Just lovely!  We are so thrilled with what this match has produced that we shall be breeding them again for a 2010 cria.

Pam went out to her back pasture about noontime and saw this wonderful surprise pronking around gleefully, nursing easily, and happily playing with her other crias born recently.  Such a happy and well adjusted little fellow, and we can’t wait to have him pronking around here in our pastures.
