Hi,We are based around the Carhaix area and cannot find any  vet to castrate  boy alpacas.   Has anyone used one around this area?.  Our local vet says it is too complicated even though he has alpacas himself.  It is now getting very difficult to keep the boys separated so that they do not fight each other. For some reason ( I cannot fathom) you are not allowed to recommend vets on this site so I would be very grateful if someone could let us know by e-mail please.  It is such a strange rule as vets advertise themselves on the French sites so may be the powers that be could explain to me why this is.  Thanks

Wonder if anyone can help.  There was a 13 Hr Electricity Supply cut last week - Fallen tree on Main Road brought down a Cable.  Electicity back on now - will this Outage have tripped our VMC, which we leave running 24/7?  Will it need to be reset or does it auto set when the Electricity Supply is back on?  Many thanks

I am wanting to buy some clothing from an online company but they do not deliver to France. I do not know anyone in England that can forward the parcel. Has anyone any knowledge of a business that will post on a parcel?

Hi Folks,   Can anyone enlighten me as to the following: 1) How often does the fosse septique need to be inspected  (by law/regulation)? 2) How often should the fosse septique be cleaned out? 3) How often does the fosse septique need to be replaced (by law/regulation)?   Is there anything we can put down the toilet to end the occasional "whiffs" that we get when outside...  Phew!  It's not nice...     Many thanks!

Hello Heidi,I am for some reason not being able to send a private mail to you so here is a copy of the message I was trying to send-Hello Heidi,Thanks for the message,but unfortunately I am away from Brittany until about March.I do not know yet for sure if I shall be able to free up any extra time when I next get to Brittany as have got quite a lot of work on,but if you can let me know your whereabouts and I happen to be passing by that direction,maybe I could call in and advise you on your wall even if I cant find the time to stop off and work. If I manage to get ahead of myself then maybe I could find time to help you with what you mentioned in the private message.I shall let you know more regarding dates as I learn them myself.I am currently down in the stunning gorges du verdon in Provence and am enjoying a bit of time out walking and enjoying the beauty down here before going down to stage two of a big gardening job for lovely clients down near st tropez in the var.If you can let me know your thoughts and location,I shall be back in touch with any relevent info as soon as possible.I shall one day get around to putting up a video on youtube on how to build and repair dry stone walls which will hopefully help others  be able to do it well and save money.I hope that all is well with you and wish you a very happy and positive new year.LuvnstuffJamie xxBest wishes to everyone else for the new year xx

I planted broad bean seeds as normal in November in the polytunnel.  Because it has been so mild, they are now 6 inches tall!  Do i risk planting them out or leave them where they are?
