There are plenty of farm animals round these parts to fulfil Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge for this week.

So, you take some gaffer tape and two bags that once contained potting compost, put them together and you have a pair of Beats for an alpaca.
Either that, or something to restrain the beast while it’s being shorn. Yes, that would probably be it.
