It's showtime!

I have finally grabbed a few minutes to post a blog. Day job issues and lots of planning for our 20th Wedding Anniversary Party at the beginning of next month have been preventing me for the past week. Yes I know, 20 years, Mrs S deserves a very shiny medal!

Anyway, although I still have tomorrow at the day job I can now start to plan for this weekend's SWAG (South West Alpaca Group) Spring Show at Bristol.

Huge deliberations have taken place all week as to who should represent the mighty Patou in the show and Penny and Millie have once again been volunteered to step into the breech from a potential list of, um.............., yes...................um.....................well ............ it was just the two of them then.

Should be interesting as they are both in the same class and I am reluctant to enter the ring myself this time. Any volunteers to lead one of them into the ring in the intermediate brown female class on Sunday morning will be carefully considered!

The biosecurity issue seems to have been handled very efficiently again but as we are not showing on Saturday we will be tipping up on Sunday morning. I have a lot of fencing to catch up with on Saturday and being the worst fencing operative in the whole wide world I need all the time I can get.

Patou Penelope and Patou Amelie looking resplendent in the sunshine and ready for action!

Looking forward to catching up with friends new and old so see you all on Sunday.
Mrs S will be holding the fort at home as Bobby is now very large, very lethargic (she's even stopped spitting at us at feeding time!) and currently at 320 days which is right in her early birthing window.

Dohhh would have loved to have volunteered to help you but I am not there on Sunday. A dog show beckons. I am stewarding on Saturday since I can't show under Tim :)))

Good luck Patou!
