It was supposed to be the summer of white faced girls. Sunflower's baby was to be the 4th cria born this summer and was supposed to be a girl! At least that's what my sister was hoping for.
Well, leave it to a male to screw things up. Rock Garden Alpacas 4th and final cria for the 2015 season was a little boy. An adorable little boy.
Look at his adorable face. How could you be mad at him for being a boy when he's the epitome of cuteness! So, my sister named him Stachys.
Here's what my sister had to say about him: "Here he is! Our 4th and final cria for the 2015 season. Introducing Rock Garden's Stachys a very fine, crimpy bright white full accoyo. Mom is our girl Sunflower and sire is Ideuma Creek Alpacas Accoyo Truman co-owned with Gentle Breeze Alpacas. Very exciting!!"
So Stachys joins his 3 cousins: Gladiola, Peony, and Marigold.
So now my sister has three adorable female alpacas with beautiful white faces and one "cute as a button" little boy..
