Barn buddy

Today has been one of those days.  This morning we were doing a few quick spit offs which turned out to need to rematings, nice for Golden Guinea and Sandstorm, not so good for shortening next years birthing window!

Then we had to return Ken's empty trailer, pick up our full stock trailer; (full of straw before anyone gets too excited) and in between we had to go to the metro centre.  I even managed to talk alpacas in Lakeland, the sales assistance were admiring our address and wanted to what we farmed.

When we returned home we found a not very happy Mary, she was sat on her side feeling sorry for herself.  She wasn't interested in tea or carrot and didn't want Liberty feeding from her either.  She is now tucked up in the shed with Kealani and her cria, Bridie, who had to come down in the trailer as Kealani was being naughty again.  I've got the vet coming tomorrow so we will see what he has to say.

I'd better make sure the sheep aren't working when he comes, who needs horse power when you have blackie lamb power!!
Tee hee, great photo Paul!
