I should have known really - all the alpacas have been shorn and what has the weather been like since? At least they all have a shelter in their paddocks to escape from the worst of the wind and rain. Hopefully things will improve soon. We do need the rain, it is just a shame that it all comes at once.
The alpacas have had their annual Lambivac injection, Dectomax injection and this year we have given them a drench against coccidiosis.
They have also been shorn and we are hopefully going to show the fleeces from Toad Hall King of Diamonds (Barnaby) and Toad Hall Cool Troy (Troy). I say hopefully because it is all a learning curve for us and we have yet to find out how we prepare the fleece for showing.
