They've arrived! The first two babies for fostering by my daughter. She is the one that does all the feeding, loving, playing and cleaning of these little beings, along with lots of help from my niece. The shelter likes our foster babies because they are usually so people friendly. How could they not be, with three of us always kissing, touching and holding them.
These two are just 24-hours old. They arrived Tuesday evening still wet from being born, and one even had the after-birth still attached. They will live here with all the rest of the ones (to come) and at about 12 weeks be returned to Priest River Animal Rescue shelter to be adopted by some very lucky family.
There is no word yet on Dolly. I can't give up looking for her. New flyers to be hung on every post and pole around. Now I'm resorting to driving up to farms and houses asking if anyone has seen her. That's a lot of territory to cover, but like I said, I can't give up.
I've been dyeing alpaca roving this week. I dyed some brown alpaca with indigo in spots. Very interesting and I think I need to card it to distribute the colors throughout. Then I put white alpaca roving in the nearly-spent dye pot and it came out a very light blue denim. We'll see. Pix when I get them spun up.
