Yesterday my favourite little (alpaca) girl was featured in our Tasmanian Newspaper (Page 7 for you local readers). She was the little premature one that i fed with a gastric tube for a long time and I was told she would not live (by the vets - three times!). I fed her for 6 months, the first 2 months were hourly feeds NIGHT and DAY! (it nearly killed me! - I have a document that I wrote regarding this that was published in The Australian Alpaca Association Newsletter if anyone is interested in hearing more about her journey - its a pdf and I would be happy to email it to you on request) My dear friend Irene (85 years young and still brilliantly busy with life) had taken her to "blessing of the Animals" at a nearby church (she popped her in her little van and off they go to little outings together - its lovely!) and she was very well recieved!
Funny how the newspapers just take things for granted .... They printed that she was owned by my friend that took her! (bit peeved at that considering she was such hard work when she was born and i would have liked to be recognised as a stud by this feature). Her full name wasnt even used .. but there you go - you never can trust the media!?!?
