Hatching a Plan

Posted By On Apr 2013 | 0 Comments

Well it’s the 30th today and are we going to have an alpaca birth? Will the computer be right? So far Dora shows no signs of obliging, but the day is not done yet. Watch this space!

Neil is in the good books, and has earn’t him self lots of brownie points as he’s finally started the fronts of my stud pens.

The stud pen entrances come right of the race by the entrance to the barn. This is a very busy ...

That’s the weekend nearly sorted, jobs all done, Ha! Ha! not really, the job list is still to long for my liking and we definitely won’t ask Neil his feelings about the to do list, the air could get quite blue πŸ™‚

Unfortunately our farm visit today had to be postphoned untill next week, which was a shame, but never mind the weather looks better next week and it’s much nicer spending time out with the alpacas on a nice warm ...

Alpacas, Whose Who?

Posted By On Apr 2013 | 0 Comments

Still no sign of any alpaca impending births and I think we are going to be waiting awhile for our new arrivals as neither girl has got her milk in yet. I checked them both yesterday.

Not that I’m really surprised none of my girls ever seem to deliver early. It always seem to be towards the end of their dates and so we have a little way to go yet. Which may be isn’t such a bad thing as the ...

I’m so mean, but it was funny, although if I hadn’t hidden in the cabin I know I would have given in. Why?

Well last night as it was so warm and the grass has started to come through at last. I decided it was time for the alpacas to spend there first night of the year outside.

If it hadn’t been for the lack of grass they would have been out weeks ago and to be truthful most of the time ...

The Waiting Game

Posted By On Apr 2013 | 0 Comments

The alpaca birthing period is upon us, Ruby has entered her delivery dates, the watching and waiting game begins πŸ™‚

Our birthing season on paper stretches right through until mid September, but that means nothing as Alpacas, as I’ve mentioned before can’t read and will have their young only when they are good and ready.

Luckily, well I hope it was luckily and the better weather holds, we have been fortunate that our cria are a bit later arriving this year.

I’d like ...

I’m really sorry, but there will be no blog today. We’ve received some very sad news, a dear friend’s mum has passed away and I can’t find it in me to write a happy blog, so I think it’s best that I write nothing at all.

Sorry

Sunbathing Alpacas

Posted By On Apr 2013 | 0 Comments

Well there’s wind and there’s wind! and at the moment all though it’s been warm and dry the washing line is definitely out of action.

There’s not a hope in hell of my puny pegs holding my smalls on the line in this weather. Out of consideration for the village, who would undoubtedly be on the receiving end of my smalls blowing around on the wind I’ve been forced, honest Neil πŸ™‚ to bring the tumble dryer back into work.

Will he ...

Sad News

Yesterday on Rob’s @ Wellground’s Blog, some very sad news was published, John had lost his fight with cancer.

We were lucky enough to have met John and Lillian on a couple of occasions over the last few years and know from that, how much John will be sorely missed.

My sincere condolences Lillian if you happen to be reading this blog.

Lillian quite understandably has decided to free up some of her capital invested in alpacas and has released on to the ...

Two Hoots

The first swallow has arrived, are they late this year, or does it just feel that way? They didn’t look to impressed to find the horses still using their stables and on that point I’d have to agree. I can’t remember ever stabling the horses this far into April, hopefully that situation can be rectified in the next few days.

Charlie has finally woken up and been in communication with the other students on his degree and it seems he wasn’t ...

What’s going on? Having just checked the weather forecast yet again, tomorrow at midday the temp is set to be 8 degree’s and at midnight it will be 11 degree’s. What’s that all about? Do we all need to turn nocturnal?

That’s all I need after the last few days, phew I’m glad there over! Was I stressed on Wednesday? well if I was, it was nothing compared to waking up Thursday morning and finding my son still hadn’t finished his ...
