All fleeced out

I am all fleeced out today, I've been doing some preparation with Jonathan Russell in readiness for the Scottish National Fleece Show which is being judged next week. All 276 fleeces need checking in, numbering and putting in identical sacks before weighing can commence.

It's a slow painstaking job as there are lots of fleeces which have been entered in to the wrong class, so things are taking longer than we had hoped.

Back at home all is well, the girls were slightly concerned that they were not getting their tea as I was running late. Rory was starving and getting most annoyed that the other cria were charging round and part of the lap seemed to involve either jumping on him or pulling his coat on the way past. I think they were trying to get him to join in the pronking session.

It's back over to Northumbrian Alpacas tomorrow to carry on.................
