What a scorcher

It has been an absolute scorcher today, even I was too hot let alone the poor alpacas who still have their coats on.

It was far too hot for giving birth!  In fact two of the three that are due now have spent pretty much all day in the field shelter out of the sum

Whilst cleaning the fields I had to put my mechanic hat on as the muck truck died on me, and the thought of manually cleaning up after forty odd alpacas didn't sound like something I wanted to do.

Eventually after taking a few bits off and putting them back on, having a tea break and taking a few photo's it decided to work again so I was able to finish the job I started.

I thought you might enjoy looking at a couple of the photo's I took.  Here we have Lualeni sat down with Chiquita stood next to her.
And here we have a much brighter looking Neelie (white) with Emery to her right and Mary behind her.

Neelie seems to be improving which is good, she is back to doing solid poo (I know you really wanted to know that; not!) and she has actually gained weight again today, only 130gms but it's better than nothing.  She has also been more energetic which is nice to see, even doing a little running round.

Glad she is doing well!
Lovely blue sky in the photos - hot here as well, too hot in fact!

Glad she's on the mend, its such a worry when once poorly. Love the photos, were you lying on the floor for the first one?
