FUll Moon

by Jane Levene on 05/03/12

There is a full moon tonight, the biggest of the year?  One of the pleasures of having a farm is going out that last time of the day/night to check on the animals and top off the water.  Usually everything is so nice and quiet in the barn.  Of course, in the wintertime I sometimes have trouble cnovincing myself that the last check is actually necessary, but I am always happy I go out there. The alpacas and PVs have excellent night vision, so even with a strong flashlight I can't see what they are so focused on!  It is the weekend for GWAS, the largest alpaca show in the country.   I will be teaching children about fiber and showing them how to spin their own yarn.  With such a large herd, it has become impossible to effectively quarantine here post-show, so we keep our critters home, and just give talks and demonstrations.  Most of our dams are ready to deliver crias around this time, and I don't want to take the risk of bringing home any viruses.  So I invite you all to come down to the National Western Stock Show complex, and visit us.  Take care, Jane
