Taking it Easy !!

Autumn colours....

Zimushka ....and the babies.....

Stravinsky......some where under there is an 'Elite' white alpaca !!!!

Baby Love !.....Zoretah !


It has been quiet here in Zanzibah Land.

We are just ticking along at the moment, taking things easy..or at least trying...that's the plan anyway !

Thankfully the animals are all fine, the girls have settled into their field for the winter. Its hard to believe that in a mater of months it will be time for weaning.

The weather is being kind for mid November which makes a nice change, this time last year we had snow !!

Talking of snow....my snow chains have arrived....well their not chains, as such...there a new generation of snow chain...so we are slightly more prepared this year, than last.....I wonder if I will get the chance to use them....!!!

I had an alpaca moment this evening....sitting on a bucket in the barn...with the girls and babies.....its just a great way to life your spirits.....a lovely cuddle with Zoretah...and Zadi~Blanca....makes it all worth while....

Ruby is getting acquainted with the mud ! I have used her to move some hay/straw. My parents have gone back home....the next time I see them....it will be for the Christmas Holidays.

So for the moment its just a case of making the most of what you got !!

Chores and tasks and the endless list of things to do can get in the way of just enjoying time with the herd, so it's great after an intense period to take time out and just enjoy them, especialy if the weather allows you.

Glad to hear you are "taking it easy!!" if you can ever say that when you have animals depending on you. But enjoy while it lasts.

You've had a pretty hectic year, so you deserve to take it easy for a bit. Take care.

Nice to hear you are taking things a little easy before the winter kicks in. Good luck with those snow chains, I hope you don't have to use them to many times.

The cuddle moment sounds lovely.
