We had given the cria a few short lessons in Halter training before Christmas so yesterday with the help of some clients who had been on a llama walk we decide to give them a go to see if they remembered anything. The were all very good and we walked them around the garden and right up the lane to the top fields and back. So this year there shouldn't be a rush to get them ready for the first show.
As I can't drive at the moment I am walking the two miles back from the field each morning, great opportunity to practice with the camera.

Today we went up to North Devon to visit Andy and Sue from Pippin Alpacas and the Alpacas they brought last year, they we all looking good and we helped out with some husbandry tasks. I was particularly interested in how the cria were growing and having a good fleece rummage. The lovely Calico's fleece was certainly impressive. We wish them all the best for future plans and their first cria due this summer.
