.....and yet another fine day!

This morning greeted us with a fine, warm, sunny day and it was certainly an uplifting feeling. This weather evokes memories of Spring and it was with this in mind that we approached the next phase of the cabin assembly. Today, we are focused upon installing the cedar roof shingles and as can be seen from the photos below, the first half of the roof has almost now been completed.

Throughout all of this activity of course, we are also getting on with our Alpaca business and tomorrow, we are having our vet visit us to scan a couple of our Elite girls which are proving a little difficult to ascertain their pregnancy status. It is always a challenge to accurately determine the "spit-off" results and so we are turning to our vet for some expert prognosis.

The Easter-Wood farm cat, that we purchased at a recent farm auction is really well at home now and is not only extemely cute, she is most effective as a "mouser". Her appearence whilst receiving visitors however generates much engineered attention and she simply adores being fussed over, bringing about a welcomed diversion to the ever present graft with the cabin assembly.

We have decided to take a break tomorrow so as to re-charge our aching limbs, so will be back with more photo coverage later this week.

  1. Beware of scan which can not find a pregnancy as a fellow breeder had a female abort after the vet got a negative scan and administered receptin( I think thats how it is spelt) We are also having scanning done this week mainly to see if our female carring twins is still pregant, I suspect she isn't.
