Feeding the girls Apples

We were sitting in the conservatory enjoying the wonderful sunshine while watching the girls, Jet, Blanche and Bonita playing and rolling around in the field. Gemma started to wonder if Alpacas liked apples, she thought that Barbara (Beck Brow Alpacas) had said that they did.  A quick google confirmed that it was worth try.

As always, Jet is always the first to be interested in food

Followed closely by Blanche

Who quite liked the taste of apple!

Sunset over Eden Valley Alpacas, what a glorious sight, even if I do say so myself. :-)

Morning Meeting

Here are the girls this morning, having been fed they obviously felt the need to have a get together and discuss what's on the agenda for the day...........

Feeding Time

Feeding in the shelter

What a glorious day here at Eden Valley Alpacas, it's nice to feel some warmth from the sun.  Jet, Bonita and Blanche are certainly enjoying the dry weather.  Here's a picture of the girls being fed in the shelter this evening after running across the field.

The Hens move in!

The hen house is now in the field behind the Alpaca Shelter

Today we moved the hens from our back garden into the field, we wanted them to have a much wider area to roam because their pen had become very muddy due to the rain this winter.  The Alpacas seem to be scared of them.  We hear that they are good at keeping foxes away so we hope they understand what their new role is.  We are just hoping that they know where home is tonight when it gets dark........

Our Alpacas, Jet, Blanche and Bonita are settling in well, we moved them into the 'other' side of the field this week and they've enjoyed exploring.  They are closer to our house and our neighbors.  They seem to like watching what's going on.

They're enjoying the recent sunshine and are often caught rolling around, something that is quite funny to watch.
