Down came the rain

The promised rain arrived today, I'd just about got everyone fed and it started to drizzle, the drizzle soon turned into proper rain that actually wet the ground.  The grass was desperate for a soaking so I'm not complaining, but in true alpaca style rain meant that Princess Mallika held on the her baby for another day.

I took a family photo yesterday, here we have (from right to left) Nefertiti, her daughter Sienna and her daughter Sahara, they seem to be getting lighter!
And what are they doing on the hill.

We had heavy rain through the night accompanied by thunder and lightening. It's raining now and not due to stop until about 4. We have two girls on day 382 but I don't want them to birth today. Beuatiful pic Debbie.

Hi - what a lovely landscape..

Does straw/hay never get caught in your alpacas wool?

Ours do lay dawn in the straw and they roll over - and looks like living strawballs....
