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.
Today was a sad day at Pukeatua Farmstay. We had to say goodbye to Peekie, our female Buff Orpington Duck. She was all well last night and this morning we found her in a corner of the duck run. She must have died overnight.
Most animals stick to electric fences – our alpacas do not.
Sometimes we have pretty little visitors, like those rosellas, parakeets or phesants. Today some rosellas flew by and landed on the deck balustrade.
