Everyone loves the black girls.

Born sometime this afternoon.. the provenance of this little girl is a straight up luck story. Her mother is a true black Alpaca that is close on 16 years old. That's on the old side sadly. She was given to us for nothing by a woman in NJ who was trying to downsize her herd and thought we would provide a good home.

Black alpacas are rare and worth good money. The fiber sells for more too. She was pregnant when we got her and we had no idea what she had been bred with.. but .. luck.. Irish.. and so on.

Now we just need to name her. I suggested "Fuzzy McSlimey" but I suspect it will be vetoed.

Padfoot. The black grim. But its female so maybe Padfoote?

I often think of you when I ride my motorcycle past an alpaca farm -- which happens really a lot more than I thought it would, in this neck of the woods. Jack the Alpaca Farmer. Some of them double as petting zoos on the weekend, according to the signs. *shudder* There but for the grace, eh?

You could call her Midnight Dividend.

Or Hirsute.

Or Epic Bikini Area.

Uh...that one might get worse than vetoed....

She went with Roisin Dubh. Which means "Black Rose" in Irish. ... So she not only named the new girl in Irish.. she picked a classic political song to do it with. I had told her 10 minutes earlier "She's your alpaco, call it what you like." I mostly call them "alpacos" because if you have an Irish accent .. apparently that's how it's pronounced. She learned that one the hard way ; )
