Surprise, Surprise !....& Guess What I'm Doing !!

Zeto...me and the new trailer !!.....

Haymaking....tonight !!......

Mam and Dad...and the dogs with the new trailer....and Zanzibah Banners !


Well, todays the day, that the big surprise is revealed.....


After a little bit of modification......the new addition is a trailer.....I have added a few changes....and the 'Less is more....might be going out of the window....slightly......I fear by the time I've finished.....I might have ....More than Less !


I have treated myself to a Bateson 316 Eurostock Trailer, I once waited all day at an auction for one just like it...but unfortunately for me....everyone else had the same idea...and it was far too expensive at the time !


Fast forward......about 3 years....and I now have one......actually my parents brough it up, as it was for sale down near to where they live, I spoted it on good old Ebay and knew it was exactly the one I have wanted for ages....so I now am the proud owner of my Zanzibah transport equipment ! I know it will be very handy and will be a wise investment.....


I have had made a couple of changes as this trailer is fitted with all the sheep partitions, which actually fold away very neatly....I don't think I will be needing them for the alpacas. I can carry up to 10 in here going off my towing capacity ! I don't think I shall have it full for quite some time ....


Changing the subject slightly.....I am also haymaking !! The 8 acre hill has been cut on Thursday morning, I have turned it on Friday & tonight......Im hoping to get some baled tomorrow into haylage, Im also hoping to leave half to make into hay....mind you we are forecast rain on Monday, but after that a nice sunny week......so it looks like Im going to be busy over the next few days.....I shall be pleased when this is done, then I just have to get it wrapped and the hay carted into the barn for the winter....then just some silage for the cows and the feed quest is over for this year !!


Just need to build the barn extension and repair the roof on the small alpaca building that was damaged last year with the snow.....not to mention...a few other jobs on the 'to do list' ...
So my secret is out......I am now the proud owner of a trailer.......

To 'Infinity and Beyond'.......we now have wheels !!


Its Zeto's Birthday today...he is 2 years old, he has had a nice Birthday present !!

Love the new trailer! It doesn't look too "more" at all.

Hi Jayne! Terry sent me check you out! If it's OK with you, I think I'll stick around and learn a thing or two about alpacas.
