Oh dear, more snow!

It has been snowing none stop most of the day, not pleasant for me or the alpacas. I took this from the bedroom window at lunchtime, all the weanlings were well hidden in the field shelter!

By tea time it was much deeper and very cold. My young neighbour Holly (who I see has left a comment in the guest book!) came out to help feed - no hat, no gloves, I must be getting old I never leave the house without mine!! Anyway, when we arrived everyone was hiding in their respective shelters, the girls soon came running though.

Guinea was slightly more cautious of the rather deep white stuff, but the thought of going hungry was too strong a pull and out he came.
The weanlings ventured out for their tea but soon retreated. After following me back to the gate to see if I had a better place to shelter. This is Aodhfin almost up to his knees, poor little Gaussian was up to his and struggling to walk back to the shelter.
