It's official Guinea is back on top form

We have been busy doing some paddock maintenance today. After shearing everyone was treated to fresh grass so there were paddocks to clean, cut, harrow and rest. We ran out of hours in the day to do it all so that will have to be on the top of tomorrows job list.

Everyone seems very pleased to have been shorn although there aree a lot of midges about annoying the poor alpacas and me! Once all that fleece is removed they are much more susceptible to being got by the little blighters.

I thought I would share with you another of Paul's photo's from yesterdays shearing. You may recall a few weeks ago now our brown stud, Golden Guinea managed to get himself beached on the fence. You can clearly see the line along his groin where he got stuck.
He is pretty much 100% recovered now and we decided to see if he felt like mating. There was no stopping him he was straight on the job.
