Whose birthday at Kensmyth, Alpaca Clay Meadow?

well somebody I love dearly had a birthday recently and that was my Dad and that is a major achievement being 89 I can tell you. What better way for him to celebrate than becoming a great grandpa again and his daughter (me) becoming a grannie? to show just what she thought of it all.. gorgeous and something to really celebrate for us all 

Alpaca field shelters at Kensmyth, Clay Meadow

Moving Field shelters is always a bit tricky with 14ft gates but ours have an overhang that clips down and along with shutting doors and rear windows they are just as fabulous 9 years on..

well they might need varnishing a tadge but still perfect for the Camelids

Acorn Warning for Alpaca at Kensmyth

just a quick word to the wise – Acorns are poisonous to Alpaca. They rarely eat them unless short of grass but Cria can easily choke on them when playing with them – poover them up daily or better still, don’t put your Alpaca in the fields with Oak trees in them. They are still falling.
