• Day 4

    The rain held off today and the sun even came out for a while. Work continues on the roof and it is still amazing to see our drawings coming to life so quickly.

    We weighed our female alpacas today, along with their babies, and administered their first dose of vitamins to help them through the winter months when there is less sunshine. This comes in the form of a paste which smells very irony. They seemed to quite like it!

    We brought Lancelot and Lightning into the barn too to do a little handling with them and were pleased to see Lancelot eating his breakfast. Lightning is still not too keen. Sapphire and Paris came into the barn too and seemed outraged that the boys get fed and they don't. Paris managed to get her head stuck through the bars of the hurdles that make up the pens trying to get to their food. In her panic to free herself she pulled the whole hurdle halfway across the barn, and was still stuck! After some pushing and pulling followed by some quick thinking we managed to get her free with just a tiny cut to her foot. She didn't seem too traumatised afterwards and after Amy had bathed and treated her foot we gave her a small handful of food anyway, as a reward for letting us treat her.

    As we left the farm I heard one of the erection team singing his own song from the top of our roof "Alpacas, alpacas, they come from Peru, Alpacas, Alpacas to your petting zoo". Bless.
