The shed is coming along nicely, this was taken last night and tonight the roof is finished! It does now feel a bit bigger, we were getting worried because it wasn't feeling very big, not that you can ever have enough shed space.
With the days getting shorter and the outdoor jobs seeming to take longer I feel like I've been chasing my tail. With two new quarantine groups the feed round takes longer, but biosecurity is something we take very seriously so needs must, we always quarantine no matter what.
I was going to get our with the camera and take some more shots of the newbies (goats and alpacas) to share with you but again left it until the light was fading. I did take this one of Highland Rose, she is a modern rose grey; or in the official BAS rules a contaminated brown.
Anyone that knows me well knows I am a stickler for pointing out colour contamination, but this 'colour contaminated' girl who has Highlander in her pedigree, has a fabulous fleece (20 micron, 97% comfort factor at 5yrs) has already produced a traditional grey cria, so we hope to our fantastic rose grey Sunburst we will get something very impressive.
