Some work.......and more Play !!

Cristina, Anna....with Zirrius.....Minstrel and Zadi~Blanca !!

Just caught Anna....trying to smuggle Zirrius in her pocket !! .......Nice Hat Anna !!

De ja vou.....the flooded barn ..and me.....mucking out again !!

Cristina, giving Minstrel a stroke......and a certain little pest...trying to steal the limelight ! With Anna and Zadi~Blanca.....looking on ....


Yesterday I had a bit of a De ja vou moment......I'm sure it was just the other day...I had mucked out the barn.....

Oh ...yes then we had the torrential rain.....and we got flooded.....and the barn was under about 4" of water.....

So I on Saturday I had the barn to totally re clean......we are back to nice and clean.....and it is still drying out in places.....but the alpacas have nice clean dry bedding again.

Today I had visitors......Dave and Cristina came over to meet....us all......!!

The alpacas we on their best behaviour and we were surrounded and greeted by both boys and girls.....but I think once again Minstrel stole the show.....she was closely followed by Zirrius.....who was a first class delicious........nuissance.....!

I've only got a limited amount of photos.......I forgot to take the camera out...for our first visit....then remembered......later for the second visit.....then I was far too busy trying to teach Zirrius how to behave....with visitors...that I nearly forgot....

I also had to do a security check....before my guests left....as I was sure they were thinking of hiding Minstrel in the back of their pick-up...and I just caught Anna....trying to smuggle out Zirrius....

You have to extra vigilant......I'm sure the thought crossed both of their....minds !!

We had a great afternoon......eating lots of biscuits....and cakes......and a extra special cup of 'Ringtons'.....tea !!.....

The time just flew ......there was lots of alpaca chatter....and I think I could safely say...we all had a great day !!

Well, we had a lovely day indeed and have come away thinking 'Alpacas all the way!'... You've set a standard and now that is a benchmark for us... We'd like to aim to get our little group as nice tempered and loving as yours and we'll do our best to spend as much time as we can in their company. Thanks again for all the tips and mostly, thanks for your time!
