Meet 'Daisy'.....the Digger !



This is a none alpaca posting !!.....Meet 'Daisy'....the Digger. She has been named by me, this is the latest addition to the place. We have lots of jobs for her to do !.....digging ditches, mucking out the sheds, and of course, the most important job.......making ponds !....I have always wanted a pond, not a small garden pond either, and its a big job with a shovel, so hopefully 'Daisy' will do the hard work !...I've already had a go, I had to drive her back from being delivered, the roads were so bad, the lorry couldn't get up to us, so she was dropped off about 2 miles away !.....and I had to drive her home !....it was interesting to say the least, I enjoyed it, every mans worst night mare !!...a female at the controls of a Digger !....I even managed to frighten another male road user, who had managed to meet me on the way back home with the Digger, he dived off the road with his brand new Discovery Land Rover......little did he know, I had never drove the Digger before, I'm sure he would have been to take away at the thought of it !!!..but we got back home safe and sound....so keep an eye on the blog, for the latest jobs, I mentioned to Perry, that I would love a pond.....its now just a matter of where, although I have my spot !....its just a matter of time !.. I know shes not new, but she is actually 3 years younger than me !....I wonder who looks the best for her years !!! 40 something !!!

I've got a little job lined up on Tuesday, when 40 bags of Alpaca feed arrives !!

Brilliant, I'm still waiting for a play on one of Alan's (the farmer) tractors. All he lets me drive are the various pick ups or quad! Don't think he thinks 'girls' do machinery.

I could sure use one of these. We have some acres of swamp that we would like to use for the 'pacas. If we want to hire someone it costs way too much.

I know, thats one of the reasons, we decided to get one also....even though she is old....better than one man and a shovel !!!...any day !...Jayne
