A vet visit

Following some difficulty with the matings of a couple of our Elite girls earlier this year, we decided to seek professional intervention and called in our vet to conduct a uterine flush on one of them and scan the other to check her pregnancy. We first ushered EP Cambridge Olympus into the barn and Graham, our vet gave her a mild sedative before administering the uterine flush process. She was an absolute gem and after this was finished we gave her an antibiotic with the hope that she will be ready for mating again with Cambridge Ice Cool Lad in a weeks time. We are hoping that this time we obtain a positive result! The really good news was that after scanning Yuralee Sunrise of EPC, we saw that she was indeed pregnant and that Cambridge Ice Cool Lad had done his job well!

With the weather being mild for a change, the alpacas are enjoying the grass which is already showing signs of growth again. The weanling males are really looking good and have grown so quickly over the past two months so I must try and capture a good photo of them!

The cabin is progressing well with the underfloor heating being laid tomorrow and the roof tiles should be finished by the weekend.

As I write this blog, the weather has decided to take a turn for the worst and I can now hear the rain pounding on the roof of the caravan so I will turn in for the night and will be back soon.
