Deckchairs at the ready

Anyone who knows us will know that Paul is always accusing me of spending all day sat in my deckchair, well this morning was certainly deckchair weather.  So I thought I would take advantage and spend five minutes sat (without a deckchair dear!) with the sunbathing girls and take a few snaps for tonight's blog.
First up we have Meketaten, super friendly, multi brown champion and reserve supreme champion and always a firm favourite for farm visitors.
Next up we have her full sister Ankhesenamun, Ankha to her friends, can't you tell the resemblance.  Just like her sister (and dad Golden Guinea) she is super friendly and is also a brown champion!

Next up we have Carol, an older girl at 12 years old and super protective of her mates and the cria, to the point where she bit my bum last night when I was putting a cria coat on Casiphia's baby.

Next up a couple of cuties, with her back to us we have Bounty (sire Bozedown Trojan) a cheeky fawn girl and to the front it's JanJan Cara's little premature cria (sire Bozedown Patriot), she is doing just fine now.

Next in a restful position is Lualeni, still keeping her legs crossed!

And finally it's Selby (sire Bozedown The Chief ), now he has to be the laziest of all the cria so far.  When this boy sleeps he certainly sleeps and a bomb could go off next to him and he wouldn't notice!

To be honest I could have taken most of the herd there were so many snoozing pacas but I didn't want to bore anyone!

Yes can definitely see the shared sire in Janjan and our Bespoke. Looking good!

Not bored at all, and good use of the 'deckchair' - at least when they're lying around you are sure of a good picture!

I agree...we can never have too many alpaca photos, after all that's why we follow your blog! Glad the sunshine has finally arrived in Northumberland!
