A new arrival

We've had a busy weekend at Kirkley Hall Christmas fair this weekend, there were lots of people out Christmas Shopping.  I even managed to get a couple of stocking fillers which was good.  The alpacas were certainly missed, we were asked numerous times where the alpacas were - you'll have to come to Alnwick Christmas Market to see them next!

The new card machine has been put to the test, all we have to do now is wait and see how long it takes for the money to arrive in our account.

At home the hay consumption is rocketing up, the girls are getting through loads of the stuff.  It's a good job we have a hay field so are able to cut some of our own; although at the rate we are getting through it will be buying more in.

We have also taken delivery of our fab new angora buck, he looks very impressive, he arrived in the dark tonight so we can't wait to see him in the light.  Galileo, as he is registered obviously made an impression on the ladies as within 15 minutes of him arriving one of the girls had spotted him and had 'found' her way out of bed and was the other side of his pen looking on longingly.

We used a pet transport company, Expressley Pets, to bring him up, who did a fantastic job.  If ever anyone is looking for a transort company I woundn't hesitiate to recomend them, they're fully licenced, caring and reliable.
