Arwen is said to be the most beautiful of all living beings in Middle-earth. Her name will also now be known for the beautiful Black Huacaya Alpaca born on June 26, 2011 at the Wonder Why Alpaca Farm, LLC. 346 Days ago we bred her dam, Midnight Aire to our herdsire, Midnight Magic's Mystery...then waited.
Around 8am this morning we completed our barn chores and still no sight of a cria. Around Noon I asked Grumpy to go to the barn and let the Alpacas out to pasture since the morning dew had dried while I washed dishes. As I watched Grumpy walk out to the barn I noticed Midnight Aire was sitting slightly away from the barn. I don't have a perfect view but...I knew it wasn't her normal spot. I reached for my camera, phone and called to the Bears that we had a cria before Grumpy could even wave his hands up to the house. Sure enough, I was already heading out the door by the time Grumpy had run back to the house to let us know that we had a black cria sitting next to Midnight Aire.
