We lost our youngest alpaca early this morning. The vet came out to do an autopsy and found nothing out of the ordinary, which gives us great comfort that we didn't make a misstep in his care. But it does make us wonder what happened.
Leven as a cria with his mom, Greta.
We will miss his sprightly prancing, bullying his brother Dark Star, playful attention, curiosity, slight skittishness, and racing around the pasture.
Three years was not nearly enough time with you. You were our fun and adventurous alpaca. Rest in peace, Leven.
