The spring time hummmm has begun at my house. This is one of my favorite times of the year. I look forward to it because I LOVE BABIES. It doesn’t matter what kind of baby it is I just love babies!
The humming is coming from Ernie my alpaca. Ernie lives in a pen with my Nubian Goats. They are his family and he becomes very stressed if he is taken out of the pen and locked away from them. The humm in a sympathetic hum for my nanny goats.
A sympathetic hum, you ask. Yes a sympathetic hum. My Nubian goats are getting close to kidding. (having their babies) So the groaning and the moaning starts when they lay in the straw and relax. Ernie lays on the straw with them and makes a humming sound. It really is quite comical to listen to.
When my does start to kid I am out there with them. Ernie watches over them to make sure no one hurts the babies. I worry about him being there sometimes, only because the kids go to him and I am afraid they will get under his feet and get stepped on.
Ernie loves the kids. Skeeter the other Alpaca was in the same pen with them last year. Here is a fun video of him. He doesn’t love them as much as Ernie does but he still tolerates them.
Watch for pictures of the babies. I can’t wait for them! You will see why I love this time of year. They are adorable!! In the meantime I will listen to the humming and moaning.
