We lost an alpaca last week…

Albie, four year old male alpaca, the second one born at Heartland Farm, died last Saturday (11/22/08) after an  illness that disrupted his life off and on for four months.  At the end, he was being treated for possible ulcer in his second stomach (alpacas have THREE stomachs).  He would eat very little, and had become very thin.  He died peacefully in the morning, in the paddock near the feeding trough.  While we will greatly miss this gentle and beautiful alpaca, we are happy that he is no longer having trouble eating, and getting weaker and weaker.

In this picture it is as though he is saying :”Here’s looking at you!” In the picture below,  Shana is having a  talk with  Albie.
