Our Animals

Guests at the farmstay can enjoy lots of cute and friendly farm animals around – Alpacas, cows, chickens, horses, ducks and the cats.

All of them have a story and many of them are rescues.

You are invited to join in at feeding times or to have a pat. You can also enjoy some of the free range eggs for breakfast on the weekend.

Animals moving (themselves) around

Most animals stick to electric fences - our alpacas do not.

Summer on its way and so nice outside

Spring soon will turn into summer and the weather during the day is already so awesome.

Pretty visitors at times

Sometimes we have pretty little visitors, like those rosellas, parakeets or phesants. Today some rosellas flew by and landed on the deck balustrade.

Even rain can be beautiful

Over the last couple of weeks we had quite a mix of weather - typical spring. From lovely warm and sunny days where you easily get sunburned to torrential rain that flooded the valley.

Tidy up time

Spring has just sprung and it's getting time for tidy ups - spring time cleaning but outside.

Automowers at work

The weather has not been too amazing over the last couple of weeks. Jolan got two baby chicks for AgDay and a few days later got a little duckling dropped off too, a rescue from a cat. So now the 3 birds are sharing the warm box in the living room. Other than that, life

We got a bludger

On Wednesday we got a new friend for the chicks. It is a duckling and is called Bludger. Bludger is a rescue as we got him of someone in the community.

Alpaca maintenance

Alpaca maintenance was on the cards this week – One of our winter tasks… ‘Pedicure’ for each animal, vitamin injection and drenching. A breeze with my favourite animal whisperer Janus ???? We get the alpacas to decide where they want to sit or stand and when they are ready to receive their Winter pamper.

Digging for winter 🙂

Not that we lost winter in a hole, but the valley got so soggy over the years that we used the still good autumn weather to dig drainage in preparation for the wet winter time. It took all of summer to dry out the paddock enough to carefully get across it with a 4.8 ton

Look what we found!

Found this Praying Mantis on our gumboot holder, eating a wasp and managed to get a nice close-up picture of her and her pray.

And the cat is not happy

Today Ziggy went to the doctor to get her stitches removed. They have been so itchy for the past two weeks since her playing with traffic. And the doctor told her to stay inside for another whole 4 weeks. Look at her face, she’s not happy at all. But at least the beanbag is comfy.

Ziggy having a bad day

Sunday night Ziggy did not come home. Normally all cats come home for their dinner and then have to stay in over night. This prevents them from hunting all the native New Zealand birds and also keep themselves safe. The next Monday morning there was still no sign of her. Eventually she came home later
