Where's the water wings

What a horrible day, we've had torrential rain and this evening hail. 

Star's baby, named Seymour, who this evening is in dry coat number three, doesn't seem to have been perturbed by the weather and has been off playing with the other cria.  By tea time Star has decided it's easier to let him play as he comes back when he wants to be fed! 

I would like to say a big thank you to all your comments and emails giving advice on the troublesome flies.  I am currently trying Aloe Vera which seems to be helping (she types with her fingers crossed).  I am also going to get some Lavender oil to add to our sudocrem which I use regularly, thanks Liz.

It's great to read that Willowbank Alpacas down in Leicestershire are very pleased with their cria from Legend of Spartacus, he is certainly passing on his Supreme Champion fleece qualities on to his progeny.  Our biggest cutting weanling fleece this year was from one of our Legend cria who cut over 3kg with less than a years growth.
