Still here

I am pleased to report my little lamb lodger is still with us, although I'm not sure of the long term prognosis. I fear he was probably starved of oxygen at birth and is slightly brain damaged which is why his mum left him. I will continue to preserve but I am not hopeful he will be able to go back to another ewe as he is still not really sucking from his bottle properly.

The weather has been appalling today, it was so misty I couldn't see the field let alone any alpacas in it. We also had torrential rain overnight so the fields were very soggy, so no paddock clearing for me today.

Pepper, one of my pet sheep is due to lamb in a week or so and is looking extremely large and uncomfortable. I can't see her hanging on much longer, I think she may have a race on with my sister in law who is due around the same time.

We received our copy of Alpaca magazine today and I noticed our brown stud Golden Guinea had made an appearance - can anybody else spot him?

That looks like him at the Spring Alpaca Fiesta, and if not there, then surely he'd be at the Northumberland County Show? i didn't see a prize mentioned...Dave.

Good spot Dave he's advertising the Spring Alpaca Fiesta.

I didn't take him to Northumberland, or any other show for that matter because he thinks pens are for one thing only........ mating! He gets rather embarrassing.
