Another weekend flown by

We have had yet another jam packed weekend, I really don't know what we ever found to do before we had alpacas!

For the first time in I don't know how long we went out last night, hence the lack of blog. What with one thing and another I ran out of time.

Today the girls have moved on to fresh grass, it is the first time they have been in the big field next to the house so they have had a great day exploring and stuffing as much grass as they possibly can into their mouths.

The easiest way to let them in was to take a few of the fence rails off (they were screwed on rather than nailed in readiness!). Ursula watched in anticipation and you would have been able to see she was the first one through - I caught their entry on camera but I can't get the thing to upload! I'll try again tomorrow.

Following the girls move I have cleaned their old field and this evening Paul has sprayed all the docks; they were beginning to take over. Hopefully this will sort them out.

Finally a cria update, Kazuo is now feeding purely from his mum and is gaining weight nicely, at 8 days old he has put on 1.5kg, despite his not so good start. Lucia is also doing well and as with Mary's previous two cria she is very friendly, no doubt their mischievous tendencies will follow in a few days
