She was born on the hottest day of the year so far and wasn't able to start feeding within the first couple of hours. Tracy thought it best to give her a helping hand so she wouldn't dehydrate and bottlefed her Colostrum, a nourishing substance they would usually get through their mothers first milk. After receiveing that, she was able to stand up and shortly started feeding of Helene. She is now progressing as normal and is looking strong!

|Only a few hours old, chilling in the grass|
|Mother and cousin greeting the little one|
|It's amazing to see how much the other babies have grown already!|
|Feeding off mum all on her own!|
Love from Tracy, Kari-Helene and the alpacas (now 22 of them!)
