Enjoying the brome pasture!

We planted brome hay in our west 7 acre pasture the Fall of 2006, let it grow in 2007, and did the first harvest last year.  It was pretty weedy.  This year the harvest was excellent: we got 300 small square bales of good brome hay for the alpacas to eat, and to sell.  We harvested in June;  now, since we have had good moisture this year, the brome is growing nicely, and the alpacas are really enjoying it!  See the little white boy?  He is the little firecracker born on July 4th.  He is thriving!  Fiona Fey, the little brown one with the white face, born on May 17th this year, is a honey.  We are posting a picture of her and her white mommy – both enjoying a meal.
