Wide Alpacas & Brilliant Display

Well the girls are getting very wide, they seem a lot wider than last year and their not due till July!

Dayna 335 days on 9th July, but looks like she could pop now!

Pip who is not 335 days until 13th July 11

And Ana - not 335 days until 10th Aug 11 (had to double check her dates) be very surprised if she manages to go that long!!

But hey we all know alpacas, they wont come until they are cooked, but am on cria alert already.

Had a bit of up and down day, first a joint on the lorry air breaks broke and air was coming out all over the place, then had a very frustrating time with RAC breakdown!! couldn't find us on the system!! What the hell!! we been on breakdown for over 5 years - systems!! Eventually got it sorted and back home safely (got to say no animals on board just steel for the barn lol

Then off to Local Kemerton Country Fayre with my sister in order to put leaflet on cars re: our open day on 10th July 11, don't really like putting things on windscreens but needs must. But was a great Fayre lots going on and lot of things to see, with a good turn out.

Then back for a cup of tea on the decking, with hubby, Sister, Brother & Sister-in, BG's were making a lot of noise so hubby went to see what all the fuss was, one girly kept come over and calling to us, not unusually as she is very sociable and wants to join in all the time, but this time she was extra loud, he found the other BG with her head through the stock fence and her horns hooked on so couldn't get out, so her little sister was obviously trying to tell us, animals never failed to amaze me.

Then an amazing air display, Sadly everyone had left and missed it, it was an amazing air display over our fields from a RAF spitfire, not sure where is was displaying to, but felt like it was a private display as was dipping and diving over our fields (and the alpacas and horses didn't bat an eye-lid just carried on munching!

Well quite a full and exciting day, so its supper, bit of telly and then bed.

Night all

Interesting that your girls are also especially wide this year...I was blaming our new stud male...but it may be a false accusation by the look of things!

It must be something in the air! I'm sure they weren't this wide last year. We have used a different stud male, so perhaps that's it? Just hoping they all deliver OK (fingers crossed) especially as one of them is a first time mummy! The photos are just three of them we have due, we have ten altogether and they all seem larger this year. Will just have to wait and see.
