Meeting the Alpacas

Last week I treated my lovely friend Jackie to a morning out together at the Toft Alpaca Farm & Shop using a Group on voucher which entitled us to a guided walk around the farm then a demonstration with refreshments afterwards.
Luckily for us the weather was kind & stayed nice & dry & also the fields were not too muddy either.
The Alpacas were just adorable even though they were recently sheared.
They were really inquisitive of us.
Under the guidance of our guide we were allowed into the fields to get really close to a group of Mums & babies. The youngsters were so giddy jumping & running around us. 
When we got to the field of expectant mums we arrived just as a little one was born...can you see his ears picking up above the grass.
All the Mums fussed around him till he was up on his feet albeit unsteady.
Then into the shop for the biggest home cooked scone ever :) followed by a knitting demonstration using some of their gorgeous alpaca wool x

We followed this up with a relaxed lunch & good natter in the village x
