It was also a momentous day for Thor (God of Thunder) who has been Tsars 'cell mate', for the last two months. Thor has been an absolute star and I love him to pieces for the part he has played in Tsars treatment. They have both become very friendly, adorable little alpacas and Sue and I are absolutely in love with both of them. I know that sounds soppy but I don't care.
So to this morning.
We had discussed releasing Tsar and Thor and when I went over this morning I was thinking maybe this afternoon. But, when I weighed Tsar he had put on 800 grams and was the liveliest that he had been. They were both looking so vibrant and full of beans that I just couldn't help myself. I opened the gate and ushered them out! It then dawned on me that Sue might like to be part of this important moment. I paused as my life briefly flashed before me. As I watched Tsar and Thor charging off into the distance skipping sideways and leaping into the air I fumbled for my phone to ring home.
The words "I've let them out" didn't exactly land easily. Sue ran to the window and was enthusing as she watched the two boys darting this way and that as they explored their new found freedom and then she said "You should be filming it you idiot". I hung up. About two minutes later I had figured out how to record a video on my phone (come on I am nearly 50!)
