watch the pipes weather ahead for Christmas
crazy busy here as usual and the ground very wet in places. we left longer ground cover on some of the fields this year which has paid dividends as although wet grass, it has not churned up. Alpaca do not poach the ground due to their padded feet like horses/cloven hoofed livestock do but nevertheless they are heavy.
the storms winds have at least dried the fleeces and we are very impressed with the cria fleeces this year. year on year improvement has yielded some fantastic yarns.
with the weather set for “freeze” now is the time to eat that more solid food… yum yum..
