Still no baby, but now that the vet is out-of-town for a week, we’re all hoping Mikayla WON’T give birth.
The report from the ranch is that Mikayla’s become quite a recluse. She’s not standing in the pen with the other alpacas, you really have to look around to find her. Then, when you spot her, she tries to find an even more hidden place, with a very “Don’t look at me!” demeanor. Aww, honey, you don’t look fat! Just well fed and fluffy.
Cliff House names our alpacas after places, and we keep the first letter of the mama’s name (so Mikayla’s first baby was Morocco). We need M place names, suitable for boys and girls. All I can think of is Malaysia and Mali. Any ideas?
Country or City?
Girl: Malaga, Mozambique
Boy: Mumbai, Madagascar, Moldova
Either, really. We have a Tripoli and a Morocco.
Malaga? Google says a city in Spain, and a pretty one! I also like Mumbai and Moldova!
Yeah I feel I’ve been on a Russian kick lately (reading War and Peace) so Modova is a fun one for a boy. Malaga is a place where my parents almost bought land, really neat area of Spain. Those were my top picks for either girl or boy.
I agree 100%
