Pancakes Birthday

Hi, it is Pancakes birthday today. She was born on Shrove Tuesday, her dam was pregnant for Australian summer when we bought her. A lovely female alpaca she has provided us with two cria and number three is due later this year. We have repeated a successful pairing of Pancake and Regency, our Comissario male, that produced an excellent female, Honeysuckle, with plenty of fine fleece.
It is a perfect sunny day today, started with a good frost, which meant that as the ground warmed up it became too difficult to finish the paddock cleaning, just means more for tomorrow, but that's another day !!
Have been busy dyeing and spinning some yarn using cochineal lots of pinks, mauves and damson colours. Will try to get a picture when all is completed, and making some fancy tags.
