The ground works to re-establish a functioning access road to the paddocks has begun, and is making significant progress.

At the end of day 2, the burn crossing has been refurbished, the vegetation has been cleared from the roadway, and the bottom layer (type 3) has been spread and compacted.

Compare the before and after photographs below.

May 16th was Shearing day at Velvet Hall.
We were being taught by Michael Henderson how to shear.
Michael demonstrated on a couple of the boys, then let us loose on the others.

After what seemed like a long-long time, the legal aspect of our land purchase has been completed.
The missives are signed, and we are a step closer to taking posession at the beginning of June.

On Saturday, 4th April, Bob intended to visit the North West Alpaca Group (NWAG) Championships.
However, his attendance status changed from "visitor" to "handler"!

We made our first visit to the "National" last weekend (6 - 8 March).
This was a really interesting experience which gave us an insight into many of the activities associated with showing alpacas.
