Merry Christmas....from Zanzibah Land !!

A Christmas Kiss....!!

We started with a quickly turned to chaos !!

Two escapees !!.....Duke and Zeto !!

Merry Mam and Dad (Santas...helpers)

Well its hard to believe that its nearly Christmas already !

As Rosemary threw the gauntlet down....for a festive field shelter.....some of us have tried to do a bit of a festive theme......and along with those who have taken part...have had trials and tribulations....trying to create a festive blog !

Great minds think alike and after having a bit of a read of the blogs.....Barbara at Beck Brow obviously had the same idea as us .....not a festive field shelter, but a festive theme of sorts.

I also picked the most suitable alpacas for the job.....sadly Duke was not one of those on the list, but he decided he was going to be in on the job...and squeezed out with the ones I wanted....he is very highly strung to say the least...he is very 'gorgeous' but he is a handful and is probably my most difficult alpaca to handle...I have had the odd.....moment and have came off the worse for the experience.....especially when doing feet......

My secret Santas.....have given me an alpaca handling pen......for which I am very grateful......( you know who you are !!) as I had quite a nasty experience with Duke the last time I trimmed his feet......he knocked me in the face with his I bent down, then he continued to barge me into the stone wall of the building.....I scraped all my head...and it was not ideal......the pen will hopefully make things much more safe !! especially for me !

Sadly he is so silly he can be dangerous.....and needs careful handling..apart from that he is lovely.....I'm hoping he might mature and grow out of it !!

Today we donned the Christmas Tinsel.....and tried to do a festive photo shoot.....well we managed it in a fashion.....we have no snow...but we do have the festive MUD !!

I would just like to wish all,


To all those who either follow my blog through their own free will....or happen to stumble across it !

Here's hoping that next year is a fantastic one....for all of us.
