'Peek a Boo' ......Nothing better to Do !

Zanubis, Aymara with grass & Pacosha
What are we waiting for !........the first up is definitely for a personality transplant !!

This is not my 'mum' !

Here is the most recent picture of Zanubis......and the rest of the Zanzibah bunch, enjoying the sun.

As you can see, he can't. This is after a little trim a couple of months ago. I thought I'd give him a hair cut around his eyes, so he could see where he was going !

If you hadn't guessed we are waiting patiently for the shearer to come and turn these fluffy bundles into sleek streamline alpacas.

I must admit I do like to see them fully fleeced and it takes a little getting used to after the shearing has taken place.

I am very curious as to whether Zanubis will stay a Rose Grey after he has been sheared, or if he will change to a Grey.......time will tell, how his fleece grows back. He is definitely a darker grey into his coat it will be interesting.

There is another special 'Z' on the scene, Barnacre alpacas has named their little white female, Zahirah, it must be catching !! I might have started something.... so she is very special indeed, with a beautiful name like that.. I know you'll take great care of her. Nice to hear that she is doing so well, after her early arrival into this world.

All things going to plan we do not expect to have any new arrivals until mid August at the earliest, however you never know what the future holds.

I knew you'd approve of the name when Paul suggested it!

I can't wait to see Zanubis's fleece at Kelso, he looks lovely - I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for it!!!!
