Barnacre has hay!

Our friends Becky & Pete have headed back home to Cambridgeshire this afternoon, however before they headed off they experienced an alpaca mating! I think Becky was rather surprised by the noise.

Legend of Spartacus pictured below had an appointment with Oonagh, she is hopefully the last of our girls to be mated this year, but time will tell on that.

Whilst we were out with the camera we were also able to get a nice photo of Golden Guinea posing.

Not wanting to miss out we also caught Gianmarco's Masterpiece whilst he was waiting for his mate who was happily spending some quality time with his latest conquest Oonagh!
Now on to the hay, don't get jealous Jayne, but whilst we were mating Alan drove past with the flicky flicky machine (no idea what it's real name is) on the back of the tractor and stopped. He opened the tractor window and yelled here's your hay.......
