The sun shines in Patouland!

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.
And finally a picture of Millie (daughter of Lily) on her own basking in the sunshine.
Isn't life wonderful when the sun shines?
Have to go now, Angus has back to back parties in Salisbury today and I am the despatcher.

It was a cracking start to the day - in my view it's worth having the 'pacas as a 'reason' to be outdoors so early.

Those are some contented looking pacas Mark. Have a great Christmas mate!

They are all beautiful, but Lily is a little extra beautiful :-)

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Mark!
