Three line whip

It has been a lovely spring like day today, the solar has been generating lots of electricity and the alpacas have been doing a fair bit of sunbathing.

I returned from the morning feed rounds to find a three line whip waiting for me!  From back to from we have Minimus, Piccolina and Nadia!

As the weather was so nice and Minimus's leg is looking much better I decided to take them back to the field for the day.  I think they were all pleased to get some grass into their little bellies.

Minimus's leg still isn't completely healed so he is back in the shed tonight with Piccolina and Brinley this time for company.  Nadia was happy playing out so I left her - she's not going to be very happy about it though because tonight it is raining!

My poorly sheep, named Hannah by by niece is still with us.  She must be feeling slightly stronger today because she stamped her feet at mum when she went to see her.  Fingers crossed we are heading in the right direction, however knowing what sheep are like you never know.

Looks like you are amassing a bit of 'stuff' in that barn - and do I see a bit of the old waterpipe lying there? I like to have a bit of trusty waterpipe for those awkward herding moments!

Lovely alpaca shots!

Well spotted Rosemary, its some 50mm pipe left over from the build! If you look closely you will might also see 'Hannah' the sheep keeping her eye on things.
