What a difference 6 weeks makes

I've been up to the hill today, I can't believe how much has changed in 6 weeks (click on the photo below to see all 3 shots in one go): 

The sheep have settled on the hill and are exploring every bit of the place (well the sheep half anyway), I'm sure by now they know the place better than me!

On the alpaca front Loki's ear is looking a bit better, I will be keeping a close eye on it.

The girls are desperate for fresh grass, they are munching hay at a rapid rate.  Hopefully it won't be long before they are up at the hill where there is no shortage of grass, why is it always in the wrong place?!

At lunchtime when the girls got their sugarbeet I took the camera.  Here is a lovely family shot, first up is the super-friendly and adorable Lady Godiva (sire Golden Guinea)...

Followed by her mum Gabby and full sister Nadia pinching a quick drink.

The alarm is set for very early Saturday morning as we are at the Morpeth farmers market with the knitwear and some of the alpacas.  We will be there until 2pm so please call by and say "hello"!
