What a hay day!
Whilst we’re all toasty warm, knitting our alpaca garments and accessories, our silent partners are in the fields, braving the weather. Well the new field shelters have arrived as has the hay, plus, this week, the new nursery/sick bay has been created.
The lovely Jane drove some of the detritus from the shed, well I say drove, but we couldn’t get the truck to start! Paul (her husband) pushed her to here and then towed it the rest of the way to the garage up the road.
The new space is where Mdina and Hope spend their nights so I can check on Mdina’s progress daily and make sure she has both an evening meal and breakfast. Hope seems quite happy with the arrangement as she gets double rations!
A lovely local chap spent a lot of time creating this field shelter, but the boys wouldn’t use it at first. I’m just hoping that having the hay in there, helps them to overcome their concerns!
Lovely fresh hay from David Rolls, such a fresh, sweet smell!
