Short & Sweet

This is going to be a short one tonight as Paul is hovering over my shoulder wanting to use the PC - his other, other job is distant learning teaching and he needs to email students or something!

There is nothing much to report on the alpaca front, Oonagh is still hanging on so last weeks prediction of her birthing last week was not right. She isn't actually due until Wednesday going on our herd averages so I'm not complaining.

We spent the morning rolling more dead grass in the new field and removing it to allow some grown before the autumn sets in. We have spent hours in there but I do think you can now actually tell we have done something.

I think I will have to have a less manual day tomorrow as I now have a very sore shoulder to go with the backache of earlier in the week; grHHHHHHHHH

You guys must have the neatest, cleanest paddocks in the whole wide world!

The alpacas live in much better conditions than we do!

Keeping our pastures up is hard work, isn't it? Beats hay all the time for our lovlies.
