A sad day on the farm

Yesterday was a sad day at Pukeatua Farmstay. We had to say goodbye to Peekie, our female Buff Orpington Duck.

She was all well the night before and in the morning we found her in a corner of the duck run. She must have died overnight.

The bite marks on her neck could indicate rats, stoats or ferrets. Maybe time to invest into some traps.

We buried her in the bank not too far away from Trever, one of our rescue ducks.

Finally some rain

It’s been a long time without any rain. Not sure how much this will be but anything is better than nothing.

A visit to the cow

We did a roundtrip down the hill for pine cone collecting, fence fixing, alpaca seeing and moo encounter.

Drove down into the valley today to check up on the alpacas and the cheeky moo.
