Rain and wind doesn't deter visitors!

Despite torrential rain and howling winds the alpacas had visitors this afternoon.  And, despite very soggy, muddy alpacas I think the visitors had a good time!  Trouble and Bea came up on their halters to say hello and then we braved the mud to meet everyone else.  It was, I think, the first time in wellies for out visitor from Beijing and he wore them like a professional!

The high winds in the night had lifted the sheep field shelter and blown it a good 20 foot which damaged a fence and broken the hay rack but luckily did not take out the electric fence.  It was originally just behind the bucket.  Luckily no one was injured but the shelter needs a little work!
In fact we have a big list of jobs but have been unable to achieve anything much at all due to the weather.


  1. Wow that really is a mobile field shelter. Glad not too much damage done. Better weather forecast for tomorrow!

  2. Our job list just seems to grow too!

    Surely this weather has to improve soon.
