Time to Enjoy !!

The weanlings...... enjoying their new paddock
Is it time for Bed ?


As the title would suggest, after my hectic days......its time to wind down a little !

So I have been taking it easy, over the last couple of days. I have been turning my time to doing a bit of spinning. I really enjoy this, and for some reason, its quite therapeutic. Also my electric spinning wheel is fantastic ! Gives the old knees a rest.

The alpacas are all ok, there is definite improvement with Zeuss's leg and I have only heard one cough from Zanubis ! Socks also appears to be doing what he should, so I think its safe to say, he is ok !

The babies are getting the hang of being on their own, Duke has settled in really well and they have formed a nice little group. I have wormed my weanlings last night as they were due. Today we have a little rain, so that will wash in the muck preparation for the hay crop !

Well, now we are in May, I can't believe that it will be only just a few weeks till the alpacas will be sheared again. I still have a little bit of fleece from last year's shearing batch...but I'm sure that this will be used up quickly ........ thankfully to my little electric wheel !

Oh....I thought that I would just mention...I planted 200 Daffodil Bulbs in Feb....that was late due to all the snow....we had. Well I would just like to say.....that they are all starting to grow !

I know its late....but still they are a welcome sight !
