Been meaning to post this photo of Butterfly all week, it was taken last Sunday in the snow. She is so sweet, her nickname is squeaky, when she was born & her mum Orch hummed to her she didn't hum back she made little squeaky noises & sometimes still does.

Just come back from an afternoon at the British Alpaca Futurity Show. We are quite used to showing alpacas or rather Martin, James & Jess are but we have never shown a fleece before. This year we decided to have a go & show Lex's fleece. Absolutely delighted to see that we had been given a 2nd Rosette.
First alpaca show of the season & it's great to see all the alpacas in the ring again, can't wait for the Heart of England Alpaca Fiesta at the end of April, when we will be showing.

There will be no stopping me now I have learnt how to post photos on my blog. After spending an hour the other night pressing the image button & nothing happening I asked on the craftsforum for help. Everyone on there is so helpful so we tried again & it worked, think the computer was on a go slow.
Above is a photo of Isabelle, our prettiest & whitest lamb, she gets her looks from her mother Acacia who is adorable, we did expect at least twin lambs as Acacia was huge (think it's all fleece) but instead we have this beautiful litttle poppet.

Oh dear how long is it since I bloggged.
Been so busy with the lambs just didn't get round to it, so here's an update of what we had & some photos.
This year the longwool herd letter is I.
Nell, Grace, Snowdrop,Ruby, Indigo1, Fulmeania, Daphne2 & Nikki all had single ram lambs, Indigo2, Gigi & Alder had twin boys. Alder had twin boys she's my favourite, so friendly always comes to be fussed, they're beautiful & in the photo above snuggled up to their mum.
Eve had Iona, Ellie had Isla & a boy, Edith had Iola & a boy, Gwyneth did so well & had 2 beautiful girls Isadora & Imelda & proved to be the perfect first time mum ever. Acacia had the prettiest girl Isabelle, Flocci had Ianthe, Daphne had Inaya & a boy & last but not least Goldie who we fought to keep alive 2 years ago had a beautiful girl Imogen, twice the size she was.
