Gravy and the number 17.

This morning Tsar has gained another 180 grams which now means he weighs 17.10 kilos. Hopefully we can forget about weights starting with 16 from now on. He has now put on weight for the last 5 days in a row, the whiteboard in the kitchen has a very nice red element to it now!

Poop. I am going to talk poop and I have a photograph of some poop to show you. Firstly though Sue and I cleaned up Tsars rear end this morning (several weeks of squitting means regular rear end clean ups). Whilst doing it today I am sure that I found an alpaca bean amongst the, the um, the other stuff. A bean! 

Yesterday I reported that we had progressed from Coca-cola to thin gravy, well this morning we are definitely in thick gravy territory! As demonstrated in the below photograph. Sorry if it is a step too far visually but one man's thick gravy may not be the same as another's! Thor very thoughtfully trod in it shortly after it was deposited.


As to the little fellow himself, he seems a bit unsteady on his feet this morning but is bright alert and eating like a very hungry little alpaca!

I must say melted chocolate is much nicer, than gravy ... but not over your Sunday lunch !! Im also waiting for the beans ..... infact a red plateful of beans with or without the chocolate ... Mmm ...come on Tsar you can do it .....ps .. on a more serious note, have you considered trying him on a tiny bit of dried sugarbeet that would definitely soak up the gravy....Jayne
