The spinning ladies were brilliant, as were all my volunteer helpers who were either stewards on the gates talking about the animals to everyone, running the shop, or doing the teas - thank you very much guys - we couldn't have done it without you! The pacas were impeccably behaved of course - I can't imagine what they must have thought of all the people in their paddocks .. they were very bemused by the pushchairs.
My biggest thanks goes to my dear husband Peter who has worked so hard getting the farm looking so lovely and making sure that there was hardly a paca-poo left for anyone to step in, but mostly for putting up with me in my pre-open day stressed state! I woke in the night worrying that no-one would come!
Here are some pics of the day..... hope those in them don't mind!! Now I'm off for a takeaway and a very large G&T!!!

|Just couldn't believe how many cars!|
|Peter looking very happy - maybe it's 'cos he's taking the money!|
|I thought I said no pics of me!|
|Kids taking a real interest in the weaving|
|What are all these people doing in our field?|
|That's close enough!|
