Its mid August and we are enjoying the warm summer air. Soon the humid weather will be just a memory...so for now it is to enjoy. The water buckets get filled a little more, the fans and the flies are moving fast. but more importantly, we have had so many wonderful farm visits from people of all ages. The alpacas are now quite used to being introduced to all our visitors. They are enjoying the extra grass, leaves and water sprays! All of the alpacas are quite a hit, but there is one that has stolen the show and hearts of all our visitors (and us)...Emalyn Alice. She is our little fighter! She has had help from EVERYONE who has visited our farm. From the girls who helped me gather up the spit,...ewww...for Emalyn to help with her digestion, to her cheering crowd from Bayberry Lane and Newagen, to those that helped bottle feed during one of her quarterly feedings and to our visitors from our next door peninsula, Damariscotta...we thank you! Many kind words and strong positive thoughts have been helping her grow stronger every day. While she is not able to stand for long periods of time unassisted, she is cushing more on her own and using the communal poop pile with my help to stand, as well as eating hay and grain on her own with the girls! So a big THANK you to all of our Emalyn fans! She is still with us fighting to build her strength! Enjoy the rest of your summer days!
