SATURDAY CRITTERS - Baby Llama Born this week in Donegal

I am so excited to show you this post today. You may remember in July I posted about 2 Llama that Mark in Donegal had purchased called Peaches and Fred. CLICK HERE if you missed it and it is worth seeing again anyway.  He had hoped that Peaches was with foal and this week he was delighted (as I was also) to announce that  Peaches had her foal and he is naming her Dot.  She is just about 1 hour old in these photos and Peaches had no trouble having her.  He has given me permission to share these photographs with you today.






Isn’t she adorable. 
I just wish she lived closer to me so I could see her growing up.

Thanks to Mark for sending me these photographs.

I am linking with SATURDAY CRITTERS

Many thanks for visiting and also to those who leave comments.

  23. They are crazy looking animals - we see a few around the place here - I think they are often kept to protect the sheep from foxes.
