It’s a while since I have updated the blog , a fact that I have been reminded of by several of my friends and readers of this blog. As I told them sometimes I go to update the blog but with so much going on that I can’t or wouldn’t want to write about I don’t know where to start.
It is a quiet time here with the Alpacas and Llamas, just routine husbandry really, poo picking, toe nail trimming etc etc. We decided to send some poo samples off to be analysed by the lab rather than just treating for worms routinely. We were very encouraged with the results only one animal showed a worm burden and one of our cria showed a heavy Coccidal oocysts. So both of these animals have been treated as well as the cria in that group, we will do another set of tests in three weeks time.
The whole herd Alpacas and llamas will be having a ADE jab over the next week as well as a drench for Liver Fluke, this will complete their routine treatments for this year.
Over the half term we had a visit from our Grandsons and a bear call traveling Ted, Ted normally lives at Josh's school but sometimes he is allowed to go home with one of the pupils. Ted has to have a record of his activities whilst he is away from school and as you can see from the photos he had a very eventful time.

I can assure you that Ted did have a good wash before he went back to school not sure I should publish the pictures of Ted in the washing machine!
