Seven Year Itch !!

It is hard to believe that we are approaching 7 years since we first set out on our alpaca adventure.  Lots have happened since then and I think its fare to say that we have grown a bit.  This is a photo of the girls two days ago tucking into their new bale of haylage....whilst the snow fell. I decided to put a bale out in the paddocks for everyone as the snow looked like is was going to be here for a while !  Even though all the alpacas come in every night to more haylage inside.

The boys on the same day also tucking into their haylage..... we have had more snow and we are forecast to have more on 
Friday night.

Duke, Stravinsky and Zeto waiting to come in for bedtime.  The boys all line up at the gate around dusk.  

This is a view from the younger boys paddock .... remember me .....cutie pants Zirrius he is a really gorgeous boy and has stayed very friendly indeed.  Zirrius will be two years old this year, but he is still as delicious as he was when he was a baby !  Rufus, Max and Hamish are also enjoying the new bale.  

Guess who ........ has snow on his nose .... Norka.  A quick photo when we were out for a walk before my mam and dad went home at the weekend.

The piggies having a little winter walk around the wood ..... I'm sure they think that they are dogs !!

Happy 7 year anniversary!
Zirrius is such a cutie! He's always been a favorite of mine.

Bless, those little piggies are so sweet. They'd vanish under the snow here!
