We have Light !! .....and Lift Off !!

Alpacatastic !!

On the move.......girls and babies.....


I have been busy this afternoon, sorting out the light in the new barn extension !

I managed to run a new light into the barn, so that was this afternoons job. I had to go and get some animal feed, as I was running low, we've not been out much as we have been too busy trying to get all the jobs done !

I'm glad to say that we have managed to do all of the big jobs, in preparation for the winter.

We have worked what feels like non stop.......I think that we have had every tool out of the tool shed...and its going to take me days to put them back !

It will be very quiet after today, I shall have a bit of time to do other jobs that have taken a back seat, like the garden and the lawns...not to mention a bit of spinning.....

My parents will go back to a more normal easier pace of retirement......it will be Christmas time before they visit.....so plenty of time to re-charge their batteries.

I'm hoping that we can have a much easier time then.........

All that remains to say is a great big 'Thank-you' to them for all their help......I couldn't have done it without them......so it will be back to me, myself and I. My parents have 'Lift Off' for tomorrow.......back home !

The alpacas have been enjoying the nice sunny weather this week, infact we have had a real good spell, I have managed to make my hay, late September ! it is good hay, well worth the wait, it is stacked, packed and under cover in the barn. I shall be looking forward to trying the haylage in November sometime...as its the first year I've ever made it....it will be interesting to see how it has turned out, this was made mainly for one of my horses who has a dust allergy......

The proof will be in the pudding.......so they say !

Mum & Dad are probably having a lie down in a dark corner now! Bet you asked them to come north on an 'activity holiday' didn't you?! Shirley & Robbie
