Today and tomorrow we'll be at the Alpaca Ontario Full Fleece Halter Show. From left to right are Latisse, Samson, and Lyndon in their pen.
( But the big news is that Samson took First Place in his class! )
So, the new boy cria. We'd named him Samson, but it's not really working for him. I hereby propose The Big Lebowski, and we can call him The Dude. And for our advertising campaign when he's old enough to hire out as a stud: The Dude Abides . . . at Serenity Suris. Or maybe just cut out the middle thing and name him The Dude right off. I like it.
This is Samson, born around 7:15AM. Dar and Deb found Delilah just starting to give birth - all that was showing was his nose and toes. Textbook birth, and he's strong, healthy, and huge. And black and white! He's just beautiful.
That's his mom to his right, and that's Willow cushed next to him. She's almost four months old, and he's only about three hours old; he's huge!
He's got a coat on because it's freezing out there with very strong winds. That's Hailey next to him; she's three weeks old now, and he's the same size.
