Alpaca farmer to the rescue da da dah!

Can you picture me in my wonder woman costume, cardboard knickers and all?

I know don’t go there πŸ™‚

Cardboard knickers! You have to be at least my age to remember that TV series.

Actually it was more like yard shoes and a snatched sweat shirt, probably for the best wouldn’t want to frighten the natives, but I did sort of fly out the door at 10.30pm on Sunday evening.

Now I know your just itching to ...

More Elite Alpaca Fleece Shots

Posted By On May 2013 | 5 Comments

What gorgeous weather on a bank holiday weekend too, wonders will never cease. Not to miss out on a photo opportunity I hot footed it out to the alpaca paddocks camera in hand.

Time to practice fleece shots on the boys πŸ™‚

From the results, I’m not sure I’m getting any better at it, but at least more of them were in focus this time and there were a lot less pictures of the floor, the sky and my manky looking hands ...

Hasta La Vista Baby!

Posted By On May 2013 | 2 Comments

I’m afraid it looks like the creeping buttercups are winning, the alpaca paddocks are gradually turning yellow. Much as I enjoyed chopping the little blighters up with the lawn mower the following morning the blasted yellow weeds were waving their pretty little heads once again.

What a pain! and it is a pain because not only are buttercups quite toxic, they also over take the grass, my alpacas grass!

Those buttercups are on borrowed time, as soon as the wind drops they ...

Alpaca Retirement?

Posted By On May 2013 | 0 Comments

Our latest arrival to our alpaca herd Wilson, is a lively little lad and is very happily running Dora ragged. Poetic justice I call that as she runs me ragged at every opportunity, I think I’m going to especially love this little boy, keep up the good work Wilson πŸ™‚

Joking aside, I really am pleased as her last cria Benson had a bit of a rough start. For some unknown reason Dora’s milk diminished considerably after a day, following his ...

My apologies for not publishing my alpaca blog yesterday but I’m afraid I was absolutely shattered, it had nothing to do with our super duper new internet connection honest!

Charlie made me put that bit in as I mentioned about him messing with it the other day and according to him, he wasn’t messing he was fixing it so that it worked properly and so it does, thank you Charlie πŸ™‚

I knew I was shattered when I woke up at four ...

Mice & Men

Posted By On May 2013 | 2 Comments

Yesterday I had lots planned, first on the list was trying to improve on the alpaca fleece shots. Some of the boys this time I thought, hoping they wouldn’t be quite so wiggly as the girls.

That job could take a while, dependent on how tolerant the boys were feeling and so for afterwards I thought mowing the doc leaves in the horses paddocks would be a great way to relieve my inevitable frustration.

To finish, a spot of painting I thought, ...
