Aussie (Alpaca) Gardening.

Hi! It's not that nothing is happening, it's just that working, having a 3y.old, a hubby that does shift work and a small farm....well, enough said!

Nature does the job

3y.old enjoying the colder weather
We are well into Autumn, and have already had a couple of cold, frosty mornings.  A storm last week coupled with high winds caused some damage in the paddocks, but fortunately dropped branches and entire trees into the paddocks rather than on the house, fences or on the animals!

Fleecy choices - Happy Easter!

Not the Easter bunny, but good to cuddle anyway!
I was up early this morning, well we all were, as little man decided that 6am was a great time to hunt for Easter eggs! Luckily the Easter bunny had gotten up even earlier and had hidden eggs!! Happy Easter :)

Work...(back to it) and other uses for 'paca fleece!

Ok...I know it's obvious...but he looked like a girl when he was a baby (the Speckles debate - Hubby concedes)
The Speckles saga continues... well now that Speckles has come 'out of the closet' and there is no denying that he is a fine young ROOSTER, he wants to demonstrate his manhood in a peculiar way.  He has obviously spent a lot of time practising his 'cock-a-doodle-doo', under his breath and discreetly under his wing...but that is all in the past.

2 years in Tassie...toenails, tounge lashings and tears!

Sunrise over MT Arthur - Happy Birthday to us!
On the 16th March, we celebrated our second year in Tassie :)  We had finally caught up on THOSE jobs that always seem to be waiting...for us it was the gate to the chook garden.  Finally we sunk a proper post, completed the fence and remounted the gate...much better!  We re-did the mini-pens inside our main pen (yes, the one Athena put me through), using four boards instead of three and two extra posts per side!

UK Grandparents visit Tassie #2

A visit to 'steamfest' in Sheffield (Tasmania) was the only day it decided to rain!
With his parents over from the UK, Hubby and I did lots of traveling around the most scenic spots in Tassie.  Of course, 3y old grandson thoroughly enjoyed the days out!

UK Grandparents visit Tassie #1

In Hobart
Sorry that I have been MIA over the last few weeks, we were enjoying a visit from Hubby's parents from Leicestershire UK.  We did as much (day) travels as we could manage over three weeks with a 3y old in tow.  Little man certainly enjoyed all the attention and the spoils (hot chips and chocolates).
