Makeover Complete !!

Makeover......complete !!

Zadi~Blanca ......

I have started on the winter log store !!......

Zimushka......

Me and Minstrel......having a cuddle !!


It has been a couple of days since my last blog......when I went to get the hayrack !

Well I have been busy doing a bit of a makeover...and I'm pleased to say, I think it looks great.

I have been busy doing a few winter jobs, mainly chopping logs in between painting the hayrack. Yesterday it was so wet, all the alpacas had a day indoors, it rained and never stopped, so it just wasn't worth putting them out for a few hours to get soaked.

Today I have taken a couple of photos of the babies, who are growing up fast. As usual Zirrius and Zadi~Blanca came right over to have a close look....and I got some great pictures.

Time is a marvellous thing and patience is just one of the ingredients to sometimes win the babies over, when Zadi~Blanca was born she always stayed close to her mother and kept her distance, but over time she has gained confidence and now she comes over to see you and have a cuddle ! which is just great. Zirrius is a cheeky monkey and is always being a nuisance in a nice way....he is just a typical boy ! Zoretah is very special, she had such a fragile start to life, despite being my biggest cria born this year, she still has the shaved area on her neck, where she had a plasma transfer.....she has always been very friendly and I think she knows along with Trienza her mother, that I helped her into this world.....I think we have a mutual understanding......strangely enough I can just sense it !!

Zirrianna who is the oldest cria is also growing up nicely along with Zimushka who are my two grey girls.....

As mentioned, I have been busy chopping a few logs....I still have rather a big pile to go, but this is my second digger bucket full......hopefully I shall get them stacked tomorrow, along with doing a spot of re-arranging the barn....I need to move a few bales around.....more winter preparation.......

Tonight I have ordered some snow chains.....!!! I have been promising myself some for the last 2 winters..and never got round to getting them, as they had sold out.....by the time I got round to it....and because of where I live....I just know they will come in handy....even if its just to get me through the snow up the track......going off previous winters.....

I am determined....to be ready......willing and able !!

To Infinity and Beyond.......I hear you cry !!

I shall look forward to trying them out......this year.....I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunity.....I am getting ready !!

To Rumble !!!!!!

Isn't it is such a lovely and special time, when the cria really start showing their own personalities that is...that shaved little patch...it makes you think of what might have been...and you just love them even more(that was our Explorer last you...I adore him as you might have noticed!!)

Very impressed with the hay rack!

It is strange but I agree, I think they do know when you have helped them into the world. One of Sam's black sheep whose lamb got stuck is now really friendly!
