I'm not complaining but it has been hot, hot, hot!

All the alpacas have spent most of the day sunbathing, I was quit tempted to join them.  Despite being shorn Veruschka has been very hot, she is a big girl and 10 months pregnant and every year she feels the heat, and unlike many of our girls she doesn't like to paddle or sit in water to cool off.

Whilst the alpacas have been soaking up the sun I have had the pressure washer out on the yard.  Whilst I had cleared up where the boys and Wesley (tup) had been I wasted to jet wash and disinfect it.  The back splashes were quite pleasant in the soring temperatures!

I did needed a break half way thought the afternoon as I've pulled something in my neck and it really is quite sore.  So I took the camera into the weanlings paddock and sat on the grass for five minutes to see who came to say hello.
