The planners said yes

We have had some fantastic news today, our planning permission for the agricultural shed has been approved. 

I can't begin to tell you how pleased we are, we were starting to get worried that it wasn't going to come through in time for us to get the shed up before winter.  Hopefully with everything now agreed the shed will be up in no time what-so-ever.

On the alpaca front poor Mary has a sore ear.  I'm not sure how she did it but when I went to feed tonight I found her with a very bloody ear, she has some how cut the inside of her ear.  We removed Mary's ear tag when she first arrived at Barnacre 4 years ago because she managed to snap part of it on a hay net.

Luckily Mary, like most of our alpacas is easy to catch in an open field so I was soon able to inspect the damage.  It has now been cleaned and sprayed with Terrramycin so I will check it over again in the morning.

Sounds like you are doing it the right way round. See my last blog for how not to do the planning thing.

Hope the ear is ok. Abcess? Noah got one in his ear, I think perhaps from a grass seed. We had it cleared up in no time though ..
