In Chapter six of my book, Lessons Learned on the Ranch, you met Momma and Poppa alpaca and their new baby which came as a surprise to the ranch. Momma Alpaca always had a smile on her face…a birthmark that created a white smile just below her bottom lip. In human terms you would call that permanent make-up!
I was just informed of this and she passed away a little while ago. The ranch is unsure what happened but she was found on the ground and cold to the touch. This is so sad and I ache for Poppa and Baby Alpaca. I know they miss her so.
Thank you Momma for the part you played in the book and for the joy you gave all of us with your antics and your always smiling face!
RIP Momma. You will be missed.
