Sunshine and Grass Overseeding

What a lovely day it has turned out to be, was very damp and dull first thing, but the sun is shining now and its turned into a beautiful day.

All the alpacas are enjoying the sunshine, lying around and chilling, really nice to see after such a hard winter.

The weanlings have now settled without their mums and are happly grazing and playing, being watched overl by our two expectant mums who are acting a aunties and keeping thgem all in-line.

We are expecting rain tomorrow so thought I would make the most of the damp ground this morning and get some grass overseeding done in the main field, it was looking quite sad and patching. But had to sort the spreader out first!! the chain had come off, what a pain of a job to do!! But eventually got it fixed and off we went, all overseeded, just need to roll now, ready for the rain tomorrow.

We live not far from the Cheltenham racecourse, so the roads are very busy with race goers, after a very misty day yesterday, today sunshine is sure to pleased the punters.

Well thats it for now, better get on a roll the field.

Hope your visitors enjoyed their visit, the first of many I'm sure. The weather has been superb to get on with the many jobs that need doing in the paddocks this time of year

Yes fingers crossed we will get many more visitors. I love this time of year, the sun starts shinning, the grass starts growing and the trees are starting to blossom. And then the anticipation of the impending birth of this years cria, just cant wait to see them safely on the ground and haring around the field.
