Guard Dog

I'm not quite sure where today has gone, it seems no sooner had we got up it's time to go back to bed again!

After a rather large delivery of stone first thing the shed dwellers got admired again.  Deliverymen seem to quite like coming here now as even the big butch ones with lots of tattoos enjoy talking to the alpacas.

Jam-Packed and Portamento had a little hair cut so they can see again before they headed back off out to play in the sunshine.  Brinley and Jam-Packed both walked well again this morning, although the closer we got to the big boys the more excited Brinley got, I think he thought Loki was his mum rather than his half brother!

Another trip to the skip got rid of some more of caravan mark one which is somewhat of a blot on our lovely landscape.  This trip took longer than expected as we witnessed a car accident on the way.  A car heading towards us was trying to overtake another which turned right.  With one man trapped in his car and the other precariously beached over a stone wall I stayed until the police arrived to take control of the situation.

This afternoon we had visitors, more alpaca admiring and view gazing and before you know it it's feed time for everyone and bed time for the hens (eventually!).

Talking of visitors, we have a guard dog on the shed most of the time who keeps an eye out for visitors...

Minimus; he seems to have taken to guarding the shed door!

No time for more knitwear photo's today, but I need to make sure I get them done because I've had word from Dave that Carol couldn't shut her suitcase for the amount of knitting she's done whilst on holiday.
