Skinny dipping

It has been another hot day, I think we had all forgotten what it is like to actually get a summer after the last few years so it's hard going.

The alpacas have been enjoying their paddling pools, especially on of the quarantine paddocks.  As soon as I filled it up they were like bees round a honey pot.

Dawn was soon dipping her toes whilst Czarevena watched on thinking she was mad, then when she flopped into the water she scarpered!

As soon as Dawn got out Amatta got in and stayed in!  Lucetta tried to sneak in by having a drink but she was soon sent packing!

There has been so much fighting over this particular pool I am going to give them a second one tomorrow. 
There hasn't been a lot of energy in any of the paddocks today, lots of lazing and grazing from a sitting position seemed to be the order of the day.
Lualeni seemed to draw the short straw with babysitting duties, although funnily enough this is all the boys from the main field, the girls were obviously with their mummy's!

NB. Thanks for pointing out my nonsensical title Mark!

Lovely pics, Debbie, especially drinking the bathwater while one takes a bath! I bet you were red in the face blowing it up!
