We had about four inches of snow on Thursday and then on Friday night the temperatures went down to -6 deg so we had visions of a repeat of the last cold spell. Luckily we only had a sprinkling of snow on Saturday night and today has been a lovely day and the snow has melted well although there is still plenty about. It looks as though we could have some more this week - it is getting very boring now although we certainly have not had it too bad. A mixed blessing when the roads are bad and the weather is very cold as lorries and horseboxes have problems (or at least their drivers do) and Sid is called in to sort it out.
Yesterday we had a visit from Carol and John who came to look at our Alpaca venture. They delayed their visit until the afternoon in the hope of a 'melting' day as the roads around Malvern had been so bad but that wasn't to be but we still made the most of things and had a wander through the paddocks and look through the animals of course. They were very interested in what we are doing and we look forward to welcoming them back before too long.
Sid got back from recovery work just in time to meet them and was out and about again after they left and didn't get back until late (again!)
A tidy up was the order of the day for today and planning out the future. We have decided to sell our 'Billy Goat' (no - not a four legged one!!!!) and transport box. The 'Billy Goat' was our first poo hoover but as we have expanded we have needed a larger model and the transport box hasn't been used since we have had the gator so they are both for sale. If you know of anyone who may be interested give Sid a ring on 07831 421195
