Alpaca Walking had an amazing day yesterday with bride to be – Rachel – and her hen party. After meeting in London, they came down to Sussex by train and headed for Spring Farm.
We were fortunate that the weather, although a bit nippy, was dry and “bracing”. Our walking team of young gentlemen were suitable dressed up with ribbons and were impeccably behaved. We did slip in Eron (one of our llamas) as a surprise entrant, but other than making pit stops for lunch (the alpacas) and photo opportunities (the hens) all went very smoothly.
After getting back to the farm, the alpacas were given their treats in carrots which needless to say went down very well. After spending some time with the Mums and babies (last years who are now growing fast), the Hens retired to the “office” for well earned picnic lunch and champagne.
We really enjoy hosting alpaca walks and having such like minded people on the farm makes it all worth while for us. A special thanks to Jennifer who organised the day and we wish Rachel a great day for her Wedding in April!
