All present and correct

I'm pleased to report that the newly weaned cria were all present and correct this morning.  They were humming away and very pleased to see us though.  Their mums on the other hand, with the exception of Lualeni don't seem to have noticed anything is missing!

We had a meeting up on the hill this morning with the kitchen designer amongst others, I've been having difficulty deciding on the kitchen.  As long as it has an aga and a Belfast sink I'm pretty easy to please.  Hopefully we have now agreed on the design and layout.

When we arrived on the hill there was a batch of sheep exploring our ancient earthworks at the bottom of the hill.  Initially I only saw three, but 3 turned out to be 32!

Back to the alpacas I'm pleased to say that Kate is now back to her old self and gaining condition again.  All this makes the vet bill I received at the weekend worthwhile.  Loki's ear is also looking better which is good.

Today is been a fantastic day for knitwear sales, Carol, Mum and I are already working on a number of special orders and today we have received 5 more plus an online sale - looks like sleep is a thing of the past for Barnacre knitters!

The vet bill must become very huge to not be worth it when the animal feels well again. Not sure if there actually is a limit.
