Spring seems to have sprung!

Such beautiful weather we have had again today, so much so that I spent most of today in shirt sleeves!! With the good weather, we have been able to clean the paddocks without the "poover" getting clogged with mud and it also seems that the grass is beginning to grow again (at last). As the area of grass around the cabin usually gets it's treatment from the sit-on mower, Sheila suggested that we let our alpacas do the job instead, so suitably fencing off any escape route, we herded them through the barn and onto the track. What a terrific job they did and furthermore, they were treated to some lush grass in the process!

The "Pretty Lawnmowers" at work.

Having now finished the pig enclosure (complete with electric fencing), we will be collecting the pair of Kune Kune's next week so our farm will have this added attraction for our Experience Days. These seem to be very popular and since we are running one each month throughout the summer, we are fully booked for April. We hope that with more and more people expressing this kind of interest in alpacas, many will be inclined to embark upon alpaca breeding themselves.

Just a short blog tonight as I have just noticed the time!! Be back again soon.
