Cold wet tea

Today has been another busy one, which began with a Monday morning cold cup of tea for Paul.  I took him a drink to bed which he left to go cold because he went back to sleep!

So whilst doing spit offs I had to listen to Paul complaining he was thirsty because I'd made him a cup of tea with cold water.   

The spit offs had mixed results.  Godiva locked her legs and refused to sit which was good, she doesn't do spit.  Unfortunately Molly & Ursula both sat, Ursula got another visit from Golden Guinea, but we didn't remate Molly.  She was actually mated to Legend just before he headed up north to Scotland so we wanted to sleep on the options for her.

Then it was off up to the livery girls for spit offs and matings.  Isadora has clearly ovulated as she was not at all happy that Gianmarco's Masterpiece dared to sniff her!  Ally happy sat so she has been mated so we will see what happens next week.

It has been a bit of a case of coats on coats off with the three littlies, this afternoon we had a terrible storm.  It arrived just as we were heading out to do a bit of a reccy (more on that some other time), so I got soaked on gate duty, we have a couple of gates to go through to get onto the road, and opening and closing them is always my job.

I was going to share a photo of Imala stretched out sunbathing to show you how nice it was first thing but it was so bright the quality was rubbish, sorry.

What a hard life poor Paul has. First it's cold tea and then he doesn't even get the fun of opening and closing the gates in the rain. I bet you don't even let him do the crack of dawn check on the alpacas Debbie!

Barabara summed up my thoughts exactly! What a cheekie chap he is...lucky to have such a well trained wife...I'd blame his mother as she clearly looked after him a little toooo well!

Maybe Paul needs a bit of sympathy? Has he been working too hard?
He seems a bit of a breakfast man to me - has he had sufficient cooked breakfasts?
Has he a touch of Man Flu on the way?
