Patouland is bathed in glorious winter sunshine today, the wind has dropped and the temperature is hovering just above freezing, marvellous.
I have just been out and fed the herd and the ice has been broken in the water troughs.
I have also just taken delivery of a load of lovely soft meadow hay as we had just about run out and they are tucking into it with gusto at the moment.
Whilst out there smiling like a goon in the sunshine I took a few snaps of some key herd herd members.
First up the three brown youngsters. From left to right: Minstrel (6mths), Penny (9mths) and Millie (17mths). As you can see Millie is a bit of a midget compared to Penny and Minnie the Minstrel is also catching up fast.
Next up is a photograph of my most favourite alpaca in the world, Lily. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
