Today we separated the cows and the alpacas. The mowerbots (alpacas) are now on our upper paddock to get the grass under control. Look how high it has grown. The cows remain back in the other paddock and we have a new family member in the middle paddock. More news re the new family member later.
Animal moving day
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.
