On Friday, June 30th 2017, a baby Alpaca was born at Mother Farm

On Friday, June 30th 2017, a baby Alpaca was born at Mother Farm (Futtsu City, Chiba Prefecture).

This Alpaca was the sixth one to be born here. He is a little boy that likes to be spoiled and sticks close to his mother. You can see him and other animals while riding the "Tractor Train" as part of the "Mother Farm Tour."

☆★From Birth to Now★☆

On June 30th, 2017 at 9am, staff in the cattle barn noticed the mother alpaca purring with labor pains. Perhaps it was because the calf was a bit large, but as his head emerged the mother alpaca began to tire and stopped pushing. Staff patiently helped things along and at 11am the calf was born without issue. Sakurai, the staff member in charge of the alpaca, said, "He resembles his mother and is a bit shy, but he is full of curiosity." While it was the mother's first birth, her and the staff are doing well to take care of the baby and help him grow. Born at 6.4kg, as of July 12th he weighed in at 8.5kg. 

This alpaca was the largest ever to be born at Mother Farm. Following his mother's example, you can find him munching on the green grass, eating like a growing boy. His name, "Rickey," was inspired by the Japanese character for "Strong," which is pronounced "Riki," in the hopes that he will grow up strong to have children of his own. At this time, we are getting him used to leaving the stable. When going out to graze he mimics his mom and covers himself in sand, he stays close by her side and is still very much a baby. He is in good health, so now the public can take a look at him and his mom spending time together on the "Mother Farm Tour."
