Alpaca & Muscovy

Living with Anaphylaxis at Kensmyth Alpaca in the Cotswolds

Anaphylaxis is better known to folk for the extreme reactions to nuts due to its publicity.. however if you are allergic to the sting of bees or wasps, it is fatal. Carrying Epi pens is a routine everywhere (yes difficult at times on farm) and this only buys you time until the Ambulance gets there.

Ambulances bring and carry the additional Adrenalin you cannot legally carry around with you.. with Ambulance times changing so much and especially in the holiday season and Water Parks, it really is a lottery to know if one will get to you in time.

Thanks to my neighbour and local Paramedic and Ambulance from Cirencester, this time I was lucky yet again.. for the third time and fingers crossed for next time.

Funny how I have ridden all my life and farmed for most of it but always stung in the house!


Looking death in the eye yet again does make you count your blessings!
