Island Alpaca First Born 2010 - May 2010

It's a Boy!  Island Alpaca Farm Birthday-Challenge Winners

Joan Hewson of Edgartown and Tonya Thomas also of Edgartown, both correctly guessed that Island Alpaca "Margeaux" would be the first alpaca this year to give birth out of twenty pregnant females, and were the closest to predict the actual arrival time. The winning birthdate was Saturday, May 8.

Both Joan and Tonya had guessed that the arrival time would be at 11:30 am, however "Margeaux" surprised the farm with their first-ever evening baby, arriving at 6:30 pm, a healthy, 15.6 pound dark rose-grey boy with light-grey socks and ears. He has been named "Giuseppe"!

Both Joan and Tonya will be awarded each a $50 gift certificate to Island Alpaca farm. There were two of nearly 150 entries in the Farms Birthday Challenge, with 18 others that correctly guessed "Margeaux" would be the first, and one other, Genny Abbot that guessed "Margeaux" along with the the winning day.

The newborn is now up to 16.8 pounds, and is one lively little guy.  The public is invited to meet him, and welcome him into the herd. Ten additional new arrivals are expected this month, and we hope that the public will be able to witness a few afternoon births, as the farm is open daily from 12 to 4 pm.
