Someone, somewhere was looking out for us, we were so lucky... we had perfect weather, dry and mostly sunny, but not hot, and whilst the wind occasionally sent a few paper plates flying, it wasn't so strong that we lost the tents - not quite anyway!
I have to say we couldn't have done it without all our helpers - they were amazing and they all worked so hard to make it a huge success and so much fun too - I must mention Ethan here - he was our smallest helper and was a real trouper! Other special thanks go to our Spinning ladies, who gave a wonderful demonstration.
I have no idea how many people came, we didn't count, but more than we've ever had before if the amount of teas and cake consumed are anything to go on!
Everyone was so complimentary about the farm and our animals, making all our efforts worth while. Peter has worked especially hard this week, and his manicured and almost poo free paddocks didn't go unnoticed. I'll let him have a couple of days off I think!
As for me, I know I'll be tired tomorrow, but for now I'm still buzzing, very pleased with how it all went, all the planning paid off and I have taken notes of improvements for the next one. It was great to see so many people genuinely interested and enjoying alpacas.
