This is Autumm. And yes, I spelled it correctly. Autumm is my most recent acquisition. Some fellow alpaca owners were moving and they decided to disperse their herd, so I purchased Autumm. She's the oldest of all my animals and is the easiest to work with. She may not look like much but she has spectacular babies. To date she's had 9 crias. This fall she had a stillborn cria in the middle of the night. Needless to say, I was very disappointed and Autumm was rather distraught. Later that day another alpaca had a cria. Lo and behold, Autumm was letting this cria nurse and taking care of it as her own. So for now, the little cria has two moms!
