'That' time has arrived

'That' time, the one I've been dreading, has arrived. I've sold our first alpacas, they've not actually gone yet but there's already been tears! Our four boys, Barnacre Horatio, Barnaby, Aodhfin and Gaussian have a new home.

We had a visit from a lovely couple John & Juliet Miller who we met at the Border Union show a couple of weeks ago. They were looking to grow their herd, Lavender Bee Alpacas, and have bought our four fun loving youngsters to compliment their existing three boys. We will be delivering the boys in a couple of weeks so I have a little while to prepare myself!

Talking of preparing, Oonagh is looking very swell at the moment, she is at 318 days gestation today and has milk coming. Both her mum, Blossom and grandma Duchess never carried for long so I doubt she will be much longer. She is getting very grumpy when any of the herd go within six feet of her, poor thing.

Congratulations on your sale Debbie and Paul, it sounds like they will be going to a nice home.

Give Oonagh our love. High hopes for her.
