Alpaca & Muscovy

Changing coats at Kensmyth Alpaca, Clay Meadow

Well Fly – aka Kensmyth Kite Flyer – is changing his foal coat and currently looks like he is auditioning for a Mule. Not that I dislike Mules I hasten to add – I meant the colour.

This one has us all guessing – stay chestnut? go bay? go black? just look at those black legs coming, then the neck, the mane – liver chestnut maybe? watch and wait..

meantime – this five bar gate is six inches off the ground and he is on his way height wise!!


Oak trees Acorns will fall soon at Kensmyth Alpaca, Clay Meadow

Well with all the rain then sun then heat, then rain then sun then heat – Trees are doing most bizarre things this year and the Oaks at Kensmyth are no exception.

Acorns are highly toxic so Alpaca adults and can choke cria so we are keeping a close eye on “action in the trees” in readiness for moving to new pastures away from any acorn falling sooner than previous years..
