All a bit quiet?

I have been at the day job for the past 4 days and now have a couple of days at home getting on with things.
One thing I have noticed is that there has been a distinct lack of comments about the Monty Don Alpaca programme that aired last week?

I'll keep my comments about it very brief so as not to offend anyone. I was extremely underwhelmed by the whole thing, and I mean the whole thing. Oh wait, no, the alpacas looked nice.

Right, moving on.

Tomorrow halter training will resume and I am sure young Penny will perform marvellously in the field, I'll whisper sweet nothings at her through the spitmist before we start and everything will be tickety-boo!

Our oldest girl, Dee, who is 13 yrs old is shut up in the shed this evening with her daughter the gorgeous Fifi. Dee has 'off moments' every few months or so and is going through one at the moment. She is a Chilean import and although just about the calmest alpaca here does worry us from time to time. I have given her a wormer, Vecoxan and a dose of multivitamins which normally sorts her out. I'll be checking on her tomorrow although with the coziness of the new shed I may have to prise her out. Almost felt like bedding down there myself!

Kira is steadily becoming more house trained, we have actually had two consecutive days without an 'error'. She is simply gorgeous as you can see from the picture below as she is embraced by the boy wonder.

Apparently it's supposed to be black and white, artistic or somethink.

I also noticed the lack of comments regarding the Monty Don.. Dream Farm programme....you are very brave to mention it !!!!...I think the silence on the blog speaks.....wonders !!!!...Mmmmm

I would just like to point out at this point that Im nothing like that...nor do I have such a 'Faerie Tale' existence...Im regularly up to my elbows in **** and spit !.....usually animal...sometimes, just life !!!! in general.

Kira looks like butter wouldn't melt !...nice to hear she is getting the hang of being civil !!

I hopt that your halter training goes smoothly.....she might even surprise you with her manners !! and it might even be a 'spit-free' experience.......Jayne

It certainly is nothing like Barnacre Alpacas I know that!

I've had various conversations and emails with people all commenting the same.

Perry and I haven't got round to watching it yet. Maybe the lack of comments on blogs has been the reason why.

And will you comment now?

I am fed up of people asking me about the Monty Don prog. People have stopped me in the street to tell me it's on and there are alpacas in it..... I haven't seen it yet - what was wrong with the farm?

Kira looks lovely. Our bunnies are almost as big!
