We have been having a bit of a worry with an alpaca we sold many years ago - Barry Norton. He suddenly started lying on his side, rolling around as if he was in real pain. We had the vet to see him and gave him pain killers and muscle relaxants. He didn't appear to be constipated as I watched him go to the toilet (although it wasn't a huge amount). This went on for a few days and this morning I was back to look at him as he still wasn't right. In desperation I tried the warm water up the back end and reports just now suggest he is looking a bit perkier. I am just off to check, followed by a trip to Mole Valley to stock up on feed for us and also for another herd we look after and are off to visit tomorrow.
Other than that all is well. I am busy getting what is left of the knitting ready for Ibberton Fete at the weekend, the saga of the bathroom has reached a conclusion and, although it was a very poor job and the idiots failed to replace the lagging on the water pipes, we now have a shower. I had a very l9ong hair appointment this week. I went in and said I was feeling old and could she make me look better - she said she would try and booked a two hour slot - obviously I looked pretty bad! I can't say I look a whole lot different as she said it shouldn't be coloured and cutting it short would be a mistake - ah well!
Finally, three random alpaca photos for no reason whatsoever!
