New arrival today, here just two hours old.  And not sure if boy or girl, Kiona the mum has only one eye and easily startled, so leaving them in peace til they've well bonded. 

His dad is a black alpaca (Black Jack) with a lovely friendly nature so hope this one takes after him.  We need a sort of pirate name.

And meantime we are bottle feeding an orphan lamb, now 10 days old.  This was day one after the first clean-up wash/wipe.  He is still a bit touch and go, has joint-ill, had antibiotic shots and vet is hopeful but not over optimistic.  Still, drinking to schedule and gets about, one day at a time.

@PossumCorner  needing a pirate type name for a black boy sired by Black Jack - I don't see how you could go past "Cap'n Jack" for his name. Signed, Pirates of the Caribbean tragic.

Roger (as in Jolly) ...:laugh: Roger is a great name.  Or Polly (wants a cracker) for a girl

Thanks all.  We already have a Captain Jack sheep (though he is a Torchwood boy).  So will work through the other pirates including Elizabeth - and my girl-pick Angelica (Blackbeard's daughter).

 

Meantime, Thomas is looking a bit better, still frail but getting cheekier.
