Warm Summer Day on the Ranch
Jeff had been in Portland all weekend and was bringing back a female who had been bred to "Plantel". What a beauty he is....we hope to receive the best from both alpacas and we'll see what we get next year. Mera was also bred today and it's nice to keep all the breedings close for planning our 2012 cria season.
Taking a break from farm work, I had to water in the new lavender plants that I planted yesterday between pasture scooping, clearning and filling water troughs. The lavender is lovely and is sure to thrive given the large heaping of alpaca poo that was planted with to provide nutrients. Always work to be done. But its days like today where I feel most happy and productive. Today's bonus was visiting with friends, watching my husband barbecue hamburgers and enjoying a warm summer day at the ranch.
