We tried to round up the alpacas for transporting in the stock trailer, but they wouldn't cooperate so we decided the pasture was a safe place to leave them. Not much grass in the pasture this time of year so its as good as any place. We did move the tractor over in the middle of the pasture as well as our stock trailer, just in case. Its about 2 1/2 acres in size with no brush or grass, just a few trees now so isn't likely to burn.
The first picture is a helicopter dropping water, you can see it just to the left of the big tree on the right. Second picture is just some of the smoke coming up from the fire (see how close!) and third one is one of the helicopters with a full bucket getting ready to drop it not far from our property.
