Look What I Found !!

Trienza and Tremona !!

The Hay feeder being unloaded !....

The alpacas.....tonight in for bed !....

Slinky...checking out the new feeder.......


Its marvellous what you find in the most unexpected places.

I was on a bit of a mission the other day, when I happened to notice this hay feeder in one of the fields.....I asked the people who owned it, if they wanted it and they said that they had no need for it....so we struck a bit of a deal......

Today I went to collect my bargain purchase.....it will have a bit of a makeover.....but I have often thought that one of these would be very handy for putting the hay in to feed the alpacas......

I went to collect the feeder with the trailer, which is proving very handy....as there was just myself and the lady there....to load it....she did say it was heavy....however with a bit of 'Girl Power'....we had it loaded in no time......and it was much easier than we both thought....I had gone well prepared...with ratchet straps.....bit of wood....and various ideas how to get it in the trailer......it was quite a pleasant experience.........which makes a change !

So here is my new purchase....I do like a bargain........and when it gets a makeover....it will look like new.....

Tonight I got a lovely picture of Trienza and Tremona....looking over the door.....waiting for their tea !!

Well done...you don't get many bargains where hay feeders are concerned...my Dad spends many a happy hour at farm sales...but has yet to find me one going cheap!!

At least 'The Mission' was successful for someone!!

We have a few hay feeders, they are great for keeping the hay tidy(ish!).

We've manged to get two second hand the other two we had to buy brand new and they cost a fortune, so good spot!
