Lovely to see you...
Still a bit blowy today, although nothing compared to yesterday; Amanda came to visit the Beck Brow cria well wrapped up against the cold. Having been a bit under the weather herself, she hadn't been for a couple of weeks, so was looking forward to a warm welcome. Quintos was first in the queue...When he was born Amanda spent 3 hours with a hair drier getting his temperature up to norm...so he is a little bit special...
"No definitely not finest alpaca...more Tesco if you don't mind me saying!"
"No hat either...call yourself an alpaca breeder!"
"Look don't tell anyone but you're my favourite"
Moment lost...here comes Magellan..."manners please!"

And a welcome from Katie and Finesse (right)
Thankfully we survived the gale force winds without any damage...I was out first thing expecting the worst...but no. The barn looked liked a tornado had whirled through... with hay everywhere...including in all the cria fleeces...and by the amount of poo inside no one had ventured out...it did take 3 hours to do the mucking and sweeping out this morning... but at least we all survived intact!
I have had rather a lazy day today...you do need them sometimes...some socialising...a little bit of copy for the new website...and it's nearly time for a glass of Marlborough Savignon Blanc I feel!
