PERU TRIP CANCELLED

I'm so disappointed.  News from Peru today that the Alpaca Fiesta 2011 has been cancelled because of their political situation... quite a large group of us were going over for it in November, with all sorts of fantastic alpaca and touristy things planned, I just can't believe it after months of planning. Sod's law I had only booked and paid for my air tickets yesterday can you believe...  Apparently they may have one in 2012....

Meanwhile, back on the farm the bottle feeding going really well now and I think by tomorrow we'll be able to put them out in the field and be able to call them to the bottle ... Bruno has been very quick to learn and has really picked up today, Bliss get's in a bit of a mess in her excitement to find the milk ...

We weighed all the other crias again today and all are piling it on ... this weeks champion guzzler is Bobby Dazzler gaining 4.2 kgs in a week.  On close inspection we discovered that Calister has an umbilical hernia, so she is wearing a hernia harness ... fortunately I had one already, never had to use one before and took a bit of working out, obviously made for a smaller cria than her, all the straps fit, except for the one that goes round her chest ... but I think it'll stay in place... a bit odd that just one strap doesn't fit?  Hopefully she'll only have to wear it for a couple of weeks.

And here's a couple of pics of Ena when she was feeding Eros and Bliss ....
