Busy Weekend and Workshop
Time is racing by the paddocks were fertilised before the rain came, that was good. The weekend was busy more routine husbandry toenails and wormers on Saturday then Sunday at a "Birthing and Young Cria" workshop given by respected camelid vet Karin Mueller. This was mainly a refreshing of knowledge and ensuring that we are up-to-date with any new ideas and practices. It was hosted by Karen, we all had a very good day. Tuesday had a late start to cleaning the paddocks as it was raining, but caught up later in the day, and saw our first swallows fly by. Today is glorious sunshine and enjoyed lunch sat out in the paddocks watching four buzzards spiralling effortlessly upwards on the thermals and sunbathing alpacas, even the newest baby was stretched out soaking up the sun.
