Summertime....and the living aint easy !

The girls. enjoying the summer.
The post knocker....has some work to do ! The operators, need more experience !
Daisy...is part of the ageing work force !!...but she gets there !!
Mam and Dad...have a well earned rest !

It has been a little while since I have blogged.....over the last few weeks...I have been ill, and then....just worn out !

My parents have been here to visit....and there were lots of jobs to do, so I have been very busy to say the least. I also had to take advantage of my ageing work-force !

The list of jobs, too many to mention, but its been all hands on deck ! Daisy has been very busy, doing a bit of digging ! The tractor is now fixed, it has had a new hydraulic pump...so needless to say we have tried the post-knocker ! It is great and it makes life much easier than putting the fence posts in by hand....mind you the operator's require more experience....we will be able to go round corners....no problem !!

Just a little insight into my past couple of weeks..... there just hasn't been enough hours in the day. My parents have gone home for a well earned rest !! But the job list has reduced considerably.

I shall have to recharge my batteries..as it will soon be time for hay making, the grass is slow this year..so I am leaving it a little while longer.

All being well, there might be a little romance in the air for the alpacas...in the next couple of weeks....I just have to create the right romantic atmosphere for the first date !

No such thing as rest and recuperation at Zanzibar Alpacas I suppose.

I look forward to hearing all about the romance.

Take care x

Sorry to hear you have been unwell - there's never time to get over things this time of year.
Daisy looks brilliant - and a relative youngster compared to some of our 'workers'!
Who is the alpaca with the black tail?

Always good to hear from you Jayne, especially pleased you're recovering.

Hi Jayne,
Thanks for visiting my blog. Your alpacas are beautiful. I don't know anything about alpacas, but I enjoy watching my neighbors, and now a new (to me) alpaca blog!
I love your dad's walking stick.
