well the Draught foal has been entertaining visitors a plenty… with his antics trying to reach around his ever so long legs to get to the grass. He finally managed it then gave up and lay down LOL. He can now easily reach over a 4ft 6 gate if you are wondering… and boy is he cheeky!
not all visitors want to be on the Blog but we have been hectic. The Alpaca and the foal have been melting and stealing hearts here at Kensmyth…
I am always amazed at the vivid colours around us in the Summer… especially the Fire bush
All ports warning for Alpaca in the heat folks. ironic that coming from South America some of them will react to harsh sunshine and lay out in it until they literally burn… if you do not provide them with shade so you MUST. imagine yourself outside without shade in burning heat and see how you feel. it will kill cria who must also always have access to shade and water. providing paddling pools is all very well BUT if a cria falls in their temperature will drop rapidly and they will die of hypothermia in minutes when very young… best use sprinklers safely.
meantime our lot live in luxury…
Hot days and cool nights but cherries, plums and apples on the table… soon we will have our own again
Welcome July 2019
