I really really wish I'd taken my camera although Suzanne is probably grateful. This morning I helped some alpacas to mate. Actually all I did was direct the traffic from a field to the boudoir and watch. Suzanne's involvement was rather more intimate and frankly it's amazing that the alpaca isn't extinct by now as clueless doesn't begin to describe it. After Veronica or was it Hermione had kicked West, the stud, on the nose, they settled down in a corner and attempted to get it together. About 25 minutes later they succeeded. There had been much struggling and exclamations of "you're nowhere near", "up a bit", "down a bit" and so on. I am definitely not cut out for alpaca breeding. But then apparently nor are the alpacas.
