Cria photos...taken by a strong women!
Thanks for the advice Mark (Patou Alpacas)...I have taken it on board...I have pulled myself together. Explorer has been exiled...no longer do I hear him orgling...no more shall he embarrass his poor mother (he was trying to mate Galaxy last night and she was sitting for him!)...he is not happy...but I am strong.
Just to make sure he was alright, I found an excuse to be in the paddock...taking cria photos (not the best I'm afraid, apart from being a gloomy day...I was distracted...I kept looking over into the other paddock...my poor boy!)

As you can see from the photos we have far too much grass this year. Paul is constantly topping which seems such a waste. We have one field that we have kept for hay, but are now wishing that we had set aside more land (I know it is a different story in the South where hay is expected to be in short supply). It is raining again now with the bonus of thunder and lightening...some summer!
