We thought we had got off lightly but when we woke up this morning it had snowed over night and everywhere was covered. We moved the hay racks nearer to the shelters which has had the desired effect of making the alpacas use the shelters more. Although we don't routinely feed them, we gave everyone some alpacas winter nuts this morning and will continue to do so whilst the snow is with us.
The dogs seem to enjoy playing in the snow but it gets in between their toes after a while.
It seems that Christmas sales in the shop are fated once again. In 2008 we had bumper sales in the lead up to Christmas but last year we had to close for long periods due to snow and ice and the same thing is happening this year. The good news is that online sales seem to be perking up a bit. Mostly socks!
