    Hmm, we should move ;)

    We actually have that too. Still green when the cold comes so it stays green. But I think the alpacas ate everything green they could find so only brown (covered with about 2.5 cm of snow last night) out in their area. Doesn't stop them from looking though. The grass won't start growing again for 2 more months.

    Very nice @newton the goat! I guess you must have cleaned the lens after Mabel licked it.

    I'm happy how lily's face is already shaping up to be like her mother's! Mabel is close but not as shaped yet. And josie is still a little triangular in the snout but hopefully should be on her way soon. Im a little curious about ramsey though, Since he is four months (or almost now), looking at @Gorman Farm five month old, I realize he is nowhere close to the same size or head shape or probably even weight. Do they grow quickly at this stage? Or is he a bit behind on the growth scale?
