Catching up

Tuesdays are always busy as we have extra help.  Nick has been helping almost since we first moved down to Devon.  He is an expert on all things rural especially hedge laying, care of livestock and he is a great help with any job that needs doing.  At the moment he and Mike are re-roofing our field shelters to ensure they will withstand a few more winters. 

I have help for a couple of hours on Tuesdays from Jon.  He helps me to bring the alpacas in for routine husbandry such as vaccinations, toe nail clipping, vitamin D injections and often just to check their condition and make sure they are healthy.  Any time to spare and he  is a great help to Mike and Nick when an extra pair of hands is needed.

Today the weather has been kind and if it holds for a few more days we should be able to finish topping the fields - which had to be abandoned when it became too wet.

Although the farm shop is now closed for the summer, we are still selling online.

These are our short plum walking socks in 75% alpaca and 25% nylon for strength and to help keep the shape.   They are lovely and soft and ideal for all sorts of outdoor activities in summer or winter.
