Visitors at WillowBank

Hi Folks,

Well it has been a bit hit and miss with the weather today which was a shame as we had a couple of visitors come to the farm, Pat and Rachel called in to see the alpacas. Rachel lives in our village and her mum Pat is a very keen photographer and wanted to take some photos of the alpacas. Lots of tea and chatter took place and some photos taken of the alpacas in between the rain. The alpacas found it very strange to see a stranger with a tripod in the paddocks. Pat is hopefully going to send us some of the pictures taken so that we can put them on the blog for judging from alpaca breeders pressure Pat......only joking.

Our new cria's are growing up fast and have bonded with each other and constantly run around the paddock chasing each other. The eggs we are incubating are due to start hatching a week tomorrow, so the camera will be out sitting next to the incubator, ready to catch the first signs of the new chicks arriving into the world. We are in competition with Jayne from Zanzibah Alpacas...where the future is Fine 'n' Fancy as Jayne also has eggs incubating and due to hatch around the same time as the race is on Jayne.

Well that's all for now, back soon with some pics hopefully.
