I wondered wether or not to mention this ...

Choosing a topic for a first blog post is hard.

You're setting the tone for what's to come.

You want to get it right.

And so you dwell on it.

Play around with ideas in your head to get a feel for them. Let them flow onto paper to see how they flow. Type them on the computer to see how they look.

But eventually you just need to bite the bullet and write about something.

And today that something is castration.

Alpaca castration, to be precise. Or 'wethering', as it's apparently known in the business.

You see, today we found Black Beauty (who's a bit of a stud) tring to mount Zeke (the horny teenager), while Zeke was mounting Milo (the new Mum), and Baby Treasure was running around trying to join in the fun.

stacks on Milo!

Clearly something has to give.

Sorry Zeke. But you're going to be joining the Laydee Paddock. Sans your bits.

And that, my dear readers, is just another day at Kootenay Gardens.
