A few pics and a favourites daughter.

I was at a loose end this evening so I wandered out into the field as the sun broke through the clouds to take a few photographs of the residents. The sun bathed the alpacas in a beautiful light and it is only the limited knowhow of the photographer that has limited the quality of the following pictures.

First up is a picture of Priscilla's daughter, Minstrel (with her white chin, Sire: The Fantastic Jack of Spades) next to Judy's cria, Samson (Wessex Cosmos) who is a good three weeks younger.
Next up is our lovely Amelie. Amelie is the first cria from my most favourite alpaca in the whole wide world, Lily.
Amelie, or Millie as we call her, has a simply stunning fleece (she is a Cambridge Centurion girl) and has inherited all her mothers traits. She is calm, friendly and as you can see, she loves apples.

She is absolutely gorgeous in my books and will be mated in the Spring to Jack of Spades, a combination that has the possibility of producing something special.
Finally, as I was wandering back in, the kittens, Seb and Belle, were playing on the gatepost. They are smashing little cats and are bringing in 'kills' every day. Not nice, but that is why we got them so, thats life!

Everyone is exuding health down with you! That is great. The cats look huge now and very beautiful.

I love the light this time of year (when the sun IS out!). Your pictures are beautiful.
