All is Calm
What a change in the weather. Really lovely and sunny and forecast to last for the next few days. The alpacas are making use of their dust bath - small bare patch in their paddock which they love rolling in. I sprinkle it with Diatomaceous earth, a very fine mineral which helps keep mites away. Also good for preventing scaly leg in chickens. They absolutely love it - even the new cria can be seen rolling away in the sunshine.
