Here Comes Some Good News

Yesterday we were seriously concerned about the long term viability of our dear boy, then at midnight he just stood up without any help from us ( i was actually asleep and Mr Rob was watching on the webcam) by the morning he had got up a few times more under his own steam and by the time the vet arrived there was significant improvement! As i posted on Facebook, Alpacas’ are like having small children around, they can’t tell you what or where it hurts, they try to be stoic and the swing to either very poorly or a lot better is dramatic. Add all that to the tug they put on your heartstrings and you can imagine what the past few days have been like.

We are now cautiously very optimistic about his improvement and he is now back in with his mates, although we will continue to keep a close eye on him.
