A Good Job Well Done......and On the Mend !!

James and John, doing a great job ! .... the sun was shining !

Oh...another day..another dollar !....having a go on the quad, spraying the weeds !!


It has been a little while since I blogged......I have been a little under the weather to say the least !...however.....I managed to be well enough to welcome James and John, on Tuesday who were here to shear the alpacas !

Thankfully all went well and the job was underway. The first to meet the hairdresser was little Duke !! He was a good boy and he was soon...looking sleek and very dapper with his new look !

All the alpacas were given the 5 star treatment, with toenails trimmed, injections and teeth inspected. A full health check for the bunch. After a couple of hours the whole herd looked totally different and I'm sure grateful of their new look. The weather has been sunny over the past couple of days. So maybe this is the start of summer.

I have taken the opportunity to try my quad sprayer out...as the weeds needed.....dealing with. All in all....its great...and makes the job much easier...and a whole lot quicker !

So in a couple of days the weeds should be on their way.

In the meantime.....what do you think of our new summer look !!

They all look very good!
Glad you are feeling better - hope you are having as much sun as we are, that always aids recovery!

It's a weight off your mind once they are shorn, and hopefully that will be a pick-me-up for you, and lift your spirits.Dave

Hiya Jayne, The herd are all looking the 'bees knees' now with their new trims. Where is Norris in all the excitement - is he sulking because he's not the only one with a cool cut?
Take care of yourself. Shirley & Robbie

Nice to have you back on the block (so to speak). Enjoy the sunshine with your newly coiffeured alpacas.
