Visitor equals treats

The alpacas had a lovely lady visiting today, but I forgot to ask for permission to name her so I'd better not. Imala was very pleased to receive visitors as it meant she got some bonus carrot and apple, she wasn't too keen on sharing it with the others!

Pearson and Ochre were putting on a nice display of neck wrestling and boys doing what boys do. Niveous came over too just to show them how you are supposed to mount and hang on to the back of a moving target.

Rory is still taking his bottle which is good, he has a coat on this evening as the nights have turned really cold. He wasn't at all bothered by it nor was his mum Geena. She obviously remembers that her baby's often go green (the coat is green) once winter arrives.

Sienna however was not at all impressed with this new green alpaca in the field. She was humming at him and trying to pull it off, when this fails she tried to scratch it off b carefully lifting up her foot and dragging it along Rory's back. She never looked twice at Minimus when I put his on.

For once I am off for an early night, hopefully Paul has already warmed the bed.

I think I may have to think about a coat for Greeves - cold here as well!
