Hands on experience

Another busy day over and it's almost the start of a new week, how quickly they go by is just frightening.

Today we had Jean and Stuart over to have some hands on husbandry experience with their boys that they have purchased and will be taking home soon.

The four boys Ochre, Pearson, Rory and Wynfor have all had lots of attention from their new mum and dad, they have all had their toe nails trimmed and been wormed.  The day has given Jean and Stuart more confidence and lots of information to enable them to enjoy the boys and cater for their every need.

 In true Wynfor style he decided that he didn't want to be in the photo and went to try and see the girls instead!
Shortly after Jean and Stuart left Carol and Dave popped over with Dave's children and grandchildren to meet the alpacas.  Willow and Ursula took full advantage of willing hand feeders and had more than their fair share of tea!

Talking of tea, Carol kindly bought us over a goodie bag for our tea - aren't we lucky.
