A day off sometime soon?
Click to enlarge...at least the herd get to relax!
There's been lots of talk about extended Easter breaks leading into Royal weddings and generally lots of rest and relaxation. Well, it doesn't seem to be happening around here. The people living and working in the countryside are obviously taking advantage of the good weather and work continues.
First we had an early visit from the farmer who rents some of our land. He arrived with a couple of trailer loads of ewes and lambs; very sweet. Then it was a call from the contractor that we use to bale our hay. Did we want some alpaca poo spread on this year's hay field...yes please...it did seem a little ironic that I was picking up poo in the ajoining field!
This morning the females, after having their vitamin and mineral drench, got moved on to fresh grass next to the boys. Lady Gaga was being her usual flirty self. Only Anzac Almost Illegal (Almo) fell for it and got a firm rejection when he decided to shows some interest...not working yet...Almo still has a lot to learn.

Lady Gaga watching Stanstead teasing Almost Illegal...but not quite!
I am staying strong and still haven't let Waradene St Patrick start work on our own herd. The decision is getting more difficult as he have outside matings booked; If we don't give in soon we won't have his first cria of 2012! Blueberry Samauri Baheti is getting very bored waiting, especially so since Poppet has been weaned. Maybe sometime soon?
Blueberry Samurai Baheti...dreaming that her man will come soon!
