Animals moving (themselves) around

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!

A sad day on the farm

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.

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.
