It's Been A Long, Long, Long Time

Laura and I have spent most of the day just watching and enjoying the new babies.  I know that birthing time is stressful until they are on the ground safely but once here it's always worth the wait.

Heaven and Eleanor have really been making the most of having a new playmate and have hardly let him sleep, everytime he goes back to his mum for a feed they follow him until he is willing to run around with them again.

Sanctimonious and Hope are now at the end of day 384 of their pregnancies and are obviously reluctant to be photographed so heavily overweight. 

If you have alpacas yourself you will know how stubborn they can be so we have made a long list of chores to be done tomorrow, at least one of them is sure to give birth to put paid to our workplan.

Laura did the afternoon takeaway for the goats and couldn't believe how much they go through.  They are so eager to get their pile of branches rich with juicy hawthorne leaves that they almost climb the fence to get to them.
