Pesky chicken!

Weather was foul this morning , which was not what we wanted as we hoped to finish shearing ours.  So we checked over the boys and cut a few toenails and then Carl and Sam set to work on making the tractor wipers work.  Somehow they succeeded in making the interior light work from the wiper switch but still no wipers!

The weather then started to improve and I had a long chat with Bert, which was sadly constantly interrupted by a pesky chicken who kept pecking at us.
By the time the weather really turned and the alpacas dried, it was too late to shear so now Sam and I have been running round putting more water containers out.

. . . and many thanks to Willie for an alpaca article he sent me this morning - I like getting interesting post - thank you Willie!

  1. Looks like one of those "special monents" we sneak with our animals...I just love those "chats!" much more interesting than the ones we have with people aren't they?!!
