Great News a new baby alpaca was born at Yew Tree yesterday - Yew Tree Tor - born on the day the Tour France came through our area on its 3rd day in the UK, such a special day we thought we'd name Tor to remember it! We're spelling it Tor rather than Tour as Tor is actually a Swedish boy's name and sounds the same as tour so it fits in nicely.

His proud mum Barbara is taking it all in her stride - in fact we thought it was another week before he was due so it was a bit of  a surprise that she'd decided to drop earlier than expected. Tor was 8kg when born so hes pretty big for a new born alpaca. He lost no time in finding the milk bar and within 2 hours was happily sucking away.
