We gave the horses a bit of new grass by setting up a new bit of electric fence, pushing the alpacas back. If was quite clear that a bit of electric fence would not really impress them. Our boys were the first that ducked underneath and went through, straight in front of me – naughty little paccas.

Rusty was the first that noticed the bit of new grass and came running and snorting at the alpacas and Abigail Moo (who was still on the other side of the fence – probably will stay there).

Think, and go!

Officially Summer – and how lovely it is

The first days of summer greeted with a mixed bag of weather. The first day was coldish and still wet with quite some wind. But that all eased down on the second day which turned into a nice, dry and hot summer day featuring blue sky and green grass.

Spring time – so beautiful

Nothing much really has happened over the last few weeks and hence our updates have been rather sparse.
One thing did happen however: Think it really turned spring.

Time of the year again: Ducks, ducks, ducks

It’s that time of the year again where the cats and dogs in the neighbourhood start bringing in little chicks and ducklings.

While a few of last year’s rescue ducks have returned sporadically throughout the year, they now seem to be returning in larger numbers and bringing their boy friends along.

The animals, the rain and the fire

Who likes the weather when it’s raining and storming outside? No one – well, maybe the odd people that are happy that their grass is growing, like us humans inside. Oh, and the ducks! The ducks love it.

Time to head out before the bad weather

Time to head into the valley and do some paddock maintenance. Checking fences and gates, continued to dig a drainage trench, checked up on the alpacas and moos, mowed some swamp grass and sprayed some other areas of swap grass. Chopped some firewood, loaded up the trainer and brought it back up to the house to keep us warm over the next couple of days.
