• Successful visit to Pets at Home

    We took some of the alpaca boys on their first outing today to a charity fundraising event at Pets at Home in Aylesbury. We borrowed a trailer from a friend and had a couple of practice runs which was well worth it as it made for a much less stressful morning. It was pretty cold so standing around wasn't much fun but we had a steady stream of visitors to chat to. The reactions varied from "What on earth are they" to "Oh I love alpacas and it's my dream to have some land and keep some". We gave out quite a few leaflets and raised a decent amount of money for HULA animal rescue. It was lovely to chat with people, particularly if they were really interested, and nice that our friends, Becky and Gary, popped by with their son Zachary to support us. After 4 hours though the boys had really had enough and were humming loudly. They had had enough of being stoked and all the noise from the cars/ambulances/police cars zooming by. Well worth the effort though and they did really well.

    After a well deserved rest and some lunch we did a little handling with our newly weaned cria and then Amy and Rosie took Sapphire and Paris for a little walk around the farm in the lovely sunshine that had put in an appearance once we'd got home! We have some new neighbours over the fence in the form of 4 retired horses and our male foals are besotted with them and spend all their time looking over the fence. One of them came over today to say hello to us and Jester, our guinea pig! James had a busy afternoon starting to tidy up the outside and move some of the left overs from the house build. Once we've tidied a bit we plan to start getting the drive and pathways done which will tidy the whole place up 100%. So no end to the hard work yet.......
