Paul's been shopping

First job on the list this morning was some spit offs and matings.  I always like to try and give the boys a 'job' after they've been spat at.  Lualeni, Sienna & Imala all spat off which is good, hopefully all three are pregnant to different ones of our studs.

After getting spat at Willow, Nefertiti and Lady Godiva were mated.  Unfortunately Mary wasn't interested yet; she usually takes between 4 & 6 weeks so it wasn't a big surprise.

Shortly after we finished the matings we had a visit from a couple of very interesting ladies who wanted to see the alpacas and what we do.  One of them actually bought a pair of bed socks from us three years ago and is so happy with them decided to start her Christmas shopping today and has bought 6 pairs of fingerless gloves.

Once the ladies had left we headed off out, Paul needed to go shopping.  Its amazing how we can always go shopping when it's for him.  His latest purchase is 38.4meters long!  Can you guess what it is?

Whilst we were over that way be nipped in to see Gill Pearson and have a cup of tea.  Then Paul treated me to chips on the sea front for tea - he knows how to treat a girl!!  The view was stunning..

When we got back there was some fence posts to move, looks like we will have a busy weekend.
