A move around

Today started on a sunny note so we were able to catch up with shelter cleaning and move some of the alpacas round as some paddocks are getting muddy by the gates.  The youngsters were straight to the gate when they sensed a move was in the air.  I don't think they are going to be so keen to move when weaning time comes around!  Weaning is going to be left until later in January this year so they have a bit of time to go.

Bert had her antibiotics and pain killers and then hobbled her way up hill to sit in splendour, as far away from me as she could!
By then the sun was going and now the wind is getting up - back in the barn tonight, I think.  I think we may have worked out what might be a secondary complication to Bert's leg problem and will need to speak to the vets about that tomorrow but, on the plus side, the wound is looking good and healing well.


  1. Lovely photo of Bert. I hope things go well with the vet today.

  2. Please let us know how Bert is going, fingers crossed it is good news. Hope you had a good Christmas despite the weather and floods! :) Lisa
