Hay presto.........

It has been another lovely day today and I can sniff hay in the making! Mr T (my farmer friend) has been out cutting the grass, so hopefully in the next few days I will be able to go and get myself some hay. Fingers, toes and everything else that is possibly crossable crossed!

Carol and Dave popped over this afternoon with some friends, they were wanting to show them the alpacas. It's great that some of our enthusiasm has rubbed off on them, Carol even managed to pick out Pearson, their names sake.

Dave was saying it is two and a half years since they first came over to collect some manure following one of my Freecycle adverts. If only they had realised then that they'd be knitting, carding, making buttons and spotting new babies in the field two years later they may have stayed away!!

We have friends coming up for the Bank Holiday weekend tomorrow so I have already informed Rory he will have a new bottle provider tomorrow, I'm sure Becky will be wanting to do that job.

Little Minimus reached another milestone today, he is now over 11kg, and almost outgrown his coat again. He still looks tiny though, but checking the weight gain chart he is doing as well as those born around the same time and considerably better than his mum did, so I'm hoping he will catch everyone up eventually.

Thanks for sparing time for the visit Debbie and no you'll never keep us away now we've got the alpaca bug! What did we do with our time before I wonder.......

Hope you get that hay - it has been really dodgy this year!
Little Minimus has done really well!
