Scottish National Fleece Show judging

It has been another busy day, this morning after the morning feed rounds we headed up to The Border Mill as we are helping out at the Scottish National Fleece show again this year. 

After a slow start with the suri's we are now getting on well with the Huacaya fleeces.  Judge Rob Bettinson is doing a fab job and called it a night after we finished the junior browns.  Hopefully judging will be completed by the end of the day tomorrow ready for the results and fleece day being held on Saturday.  So if you are at a loose end at the weekend do come and say hello and have a look at what you can do with the fleece of these fabulous animals.

By the time we got back tonight, after a very foggy drive home all the chickens had taken themselves off to bed and the main alpaca herd were wondering what on earth we were doing turning up at 8.30pm with torches.

Oonagh, our herd matriarch was soon over to see what we were up to, and letting everyone else know all was OK. 

Following our day at the hill yesterday here is the latest update photo.  Our builder is still hopeful that we could be in for Christmas!
