Alpaca maintenance

Alpaca maintenance was on the cards this week – One of our winter tasks… ‘Pedicure’ for each animal, vitamin injection and drenching. A breeze with my favourite animal whisperer Janus ???? We get the alpacas to decide where they want to sit or stand and when they are ready to receive their Winter pamper.

A visit to the cow

We did a roundtrip down the hill for pine cone collecting, fence fixing, alpaca seeing and moo encounter.

Drove down into the valley today to check up on the alpacas and the cheeky moo.
