And so the work goes on ..and on..

The work on the alpaca barn has continued whilst we have had such good weather. Firstly we have decided to concrete the floor of the old hay barn. This has to be done fairly quickly as it is our shearing area so will be needed before long.

Friend Ben was summoned to use his exceptional digger skills to do the ground works.

Then it was the turn of the 'elf and safety expert to lend a hand checking the levels under the supervision of the boss !!!!!!!!
More stone brought in by the toad himself!!

Now it is the turn of 'whacker plate' to finish it off before the concrete arrives.

First load of concrete installed.

Our original intention was to put the roof on first but as the weather has been so good the decision to get the ground levelled and concreted has paid off. Lots more hard work to go but the benefits will be enormous.
The grass is growing slowly, we moved the boys onto fresh pasture and they certainly showed their approval. 'Hiccup' our matriarch has been under the weather. She developed a lameness we have not been able to find the cause of yet, it appears to be some sort of stiffness in her hocks. Hopefully we will get to the root of the problem soon and restore her to full health.
