A little bit of Friendship, goes along way !

We are having an Alpaca Moment !!....
Baby Zienna.....without her coat ..

Zullulah and Zienna....


My gal !.....she's a real sweetie at the moment....



A little bit of Alpaca love ... you just can't beat it....


Some regular readers will know the name of my resident spitter !....now how things change.


She is known far and wide, but I have to tell you all, she is an absolute delight at the moment. The reason being is she is not pregnant, the exact same thing happened last year after she had her baby. I have been waiting for the change, to see if the same thing happened and it has.

We have been sharing 'alpaca moments' recently. So I thought that I'd take my camera out and try to record the moment. Its a bit difficult when you are trying to do everything at once, but I managed in a fashion. We had a lovely moment in the field today. If you go over to see her and stand long enough, she will come over to you and sit at your feet. You then are invited to have a cuddle !..so we did. Minstrel will sit there happily for as long as you do, its really quite sweet. Little Zienna even came over to see what we were doing.

It was such a lovely warm day today, the babies were out and about without their coats on !

On a slightly different note, Zeuss's bad leg has ruptured into a nasty abscess, I can only guess that he has injured it last week when I opened the gate for a little extra grazing. Sadly the younger ones spent more time charging around at the gate greeting the older boys. We are treating it with anit-biotics, homeopathy and dressing it at the moment. These abscesses can be really nasty, his leg is very swollen, however the heat has calmed down a little and I have managed to drain some of the infection out, no doubt I will be repeating this until things improve. He is also on some pain relief. So I hope that he is a bit more comfortable than a couple of days ago. He is walking around normally, and eating, but I shall be keeping a very close eye on him.

It's amazing what a difference being pregnant makes to some girls isn't it. Kate is the same and Angelus is proving to be rather highly strung now she is pregnant!

Love the photies by the way, and I hope Zeuss's leg improves quickly bless him.
