Little snow, grey mild winter

Meillä ei ole enää Victoria. Suloinen tyttö-vasa kuoli joulukuussa, leikkauspöydällä Saaren Eläinklinikalla. Suoliston tukkeutuminen. Emme vieläkään ymmärrä, miksi niin piti käydä. Kuvassa Victoria matkustaa eläinklinikalle. Pieni vasa kesti kyytiä hyvin, olimme vielä toivoa täynnä.Victoria ei enää ole

Since Victoria’s death, life has continued at De Akkerweide. Marco Polo has grown wonderfully and his mom Nella is doing well. So do the other alpaca-girls and our ewes. In fact, since last weekend we have another male sharing life in the barn. Our new ram Elmu is still a lamb boy, and privileged to live together with the girls, since all ewes are already pregnant. But next autumn, he will have his turn at getting his ewes pregnant.

The legendary blue moments of Nordic winter are rare this year, but every now and then there are some moments we may enjoy them and wonder how a blue moonshine sky and a few centimeters of pure white snow can make our little farm estate looking so romantic…
