Busted!

Friday, March 30th, 2012

On Monday night (26th March), we discovered our two week old cria had broken her leg. X-rays show both bones in her lower foreleg have been broken, with an open wound where the bone had poked through the flesh. Our vet tells us the type of fracture is consistent with a kick.

Cadenza now sports a bright blue cast from the top of her leg to the toes, and requires some observant nursing, to make sure the wound in her leg doesn’t become infected under the cast (she is also having anti-biotic every 2 days to help prevent this also), and she is not allowed to get the cast wet. This means she and her mother, Harmony, are now being kept under cover for the next five weeks until the break heals. We will write a full article on Cadenzas broken leg after she is mobile again, and publish it in our newsletter. (If you don’t already receive our newsletter, you can sign up here).

I have a lot of fun  writing and compiling our newsletter which is emailed out to readers every couple of months.  We get a lot of positive feedback – readers saying that the variety of useful information contained in a nutshell is both interesting and informative.  The next edition is due out early in August 2011 and discusses (among other things) “Planning Your Alpaca Farm” and “Evaluating Alpaca Fibre” which are both subjects of interest to new owners. From time to time our readers are offered “specials” that are not necessarily promoted in the Alpacas for Sale section of our website.
