This little llama was born just over a week ago in a field not far from our house. I’ve never seen a baby llama before. This one is adorable. I can’t wait until our baby alpacas are born in August or September (alpacas are pregnant for 11-and-a-half to 12-and-a-half months). Baby alpacas are smaller, fluffier and cuter even than baby llamas.

This little spotted llama looks just like his daddy. His mama is dark, dark brown or black.

I’ll post some “artsy” shots of this little llama tomorrow.
