Welcoming The Freeze
A hard frost evident when I went out this morning
The Alpacas coats were all crispy, it just shows how insulating there fleeces are
It doesn't worry them at all, the seem to enjoy the cold weather, as the ground was frozen I fed them in one of the paddocks, and laid out a load of hay for them, broke the ice on the water for them,
gave Kara a bottle, it was pleasant in the morning sunshine
This were the Alpacas chose to sleep last night, they have access to a field shelter but would rather sleep outside.
After everyone was fed, given hay, collected eggs, broken the ice on the drink waters, brought in plenty of logs, nipped to the post office van, I decided to make the most of lovely winter day
The Welsh National Botanical Garden is only about 15-20mins away and through January on week days its free admission, a quick change of clothes grabbed a few snacks and off I went.
The car park was fairly full when I arrived, I took so many photos I have popped them on another page for you to see.
I had a lovely time on my visit and best of all it didn't cost anything.
There are all sorts of free entertainment out there in the local area,
I get the local news letter telling me what is going on, attending these events is a great way of meeting people too and gets you involved in the local community.
I hope you have all been enjoying the freeze while it is with us.
