It has indeed been very quiet round here, though the major summer jobs have been done – particularly shearing and haylage-making. We don’t seem to have made it to many shows this year, though that is changing this week with Pat going off to the North Devon Show (near Barnstaple) on Wednesday. See their website for all the details. She’s actually going on the Tuesday to help the alpaca fleece judge get through all the show entries, but on the Wednesday she’ll have a small stand with lots of alpaca products for sale – most of them made from our own natural (undyed) alpaca fibre. Take a look at the Blacklands Alpacas Shop Facebook page to see some of the lovely new things Pat has developed.
