Me and My Hat !!..... and the Midges !!













I have been way for a little home visit, just before I went away I had a little job to do, regular readers will remember that I mentioned that the midges were pestering Zaninni, he was being eaten alive by the blighters....I also mentioned that I just might have to make him a designer hat !!....

Whilst I was away I visited Debbie and Paul at Barnacre Alpacas near Morpeth. It was a special visit to see Golden Guinea and the new arrivals, Palm-Olive, Heidi and the most recent little girl to arrive at Barnacre.....I wonder what have you decided to call her.

I mentioned to Debbie that I had some photos of Zaninni wearing his extra special midge- busting hat, so needless to say the camera came out and I have said that we were going to set the trend in Alpaca Headwear !! .....at this point I think that Debbie was certain that I was slightly off the planet, however I assured her that I was completely sane !! all in the name of alpaca welfare.

Zaninni likes hit new hat, its better than being eaten alive by the midges and he looks handsome, we had several attempts and fittings to eventually get the right look !! ....its very important you know.

I have lots of photos of my lovely visit, I was very pleased to see Golden Guinea on his feet, he has been recovering after a freak accident after beaching himself on the dividing fence between two paddocks....I do hope that he continues to recover and gain his strength back to full health, he is a beautifully handsome fella. The new arrivals are lovely and I had a lovely afternoon 'alpaca chatting'.....although I did feel that I never shut up, I can't think why !!

So I've gone on about it enough, so here's the pictures you have been waiting for....... I'll let you make up your own mind up about my sanity, however there are no complaints from Zaninni ....

Fantastic hat Jayne!
What a brilliant idea, our lot are pestered all day by little midges and quite often have earfuls of them.

On the question of sanity.....in the icest possible way.......it is quite obvious to us all!

Love your photies Jayne. One day we will get up to see your four legged family.

Guinea has been running round today and you would hardly notice anything had occurred.

Jayne, you may just start a new international trend in alpaca headgear! It looks both lovely AND functional!
