barn



So we've 'upped sticks' from the woods to move to the barn.

We have a rotating cast of players here, also joined by livestock ranging from chickens to alpacas. The alpacas have pointy ears whereas llamas are the ones with the banana-shaped ears if you're ever not quite sure what's in the field.

I'm told that jinksy llamas also make good guard animals for a herd of say, sheep, whilst alpaca are relatively timid.

I'm also one fence short of the herd here, so although the friendly dog comes around whenever the gate is left open, the rarer livestock are kept contained.

Our friendly weather folk have told us there will be thunderstorms today, but I'm mainly seeing the clear blue skies and sunshine. Just right for sitting on the grass for a leisurely read.
