Spring has sprung this week with a notable change in the temperature and signs of the green shoots of new grass starting to show. Thank goodness. We seem to have got through an unbelievable amount of hay this winter and had to collect another roll this weekend.
It's the international alpaca show at Vierzon again this weekend so we have spent a little time brushing up the halter training and trying to keep the show animals clean. A thankless task, as it's always those that find the dirt to roll in. I'm sure they do it on purpose.
The picture is of Atlas and Di Vinci going walkabout with a couple we met at the Pontivy show. They turned up this week complete with picnic to look over the boys.
Marie- Eloise was besotted with Atlas and has insisted on having first refusal on any of his male cria born this year.
The first is due in about six weeks to a very nice solid white female. Should be an interesting result.
