Back from the Kumeu Show

We had a great two days at the Kumeu Show and would like to like to thank all our lovely visitors who took the opportunity to ask us questions about alpacas. Ponga, Soda and our juniors Joey and Mochaccino enjoyed being fed by lots of people and behaved very well. They arrived back home tired, just like us and are happily running around in the paddock.

What an amazing time we’ve had and our alpacas reaped some prizes.

I just wanted to share some impressions with you. Looking forward to next year.

Winter is officially here

Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land. The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.

Quiet times

While we had no guests, have not been out to see any people and had no coffee other than the home made one due to COVID-19 lockdown level 4 and 3, we fixed a few things around the farm, moved animals around the paddocks and got more feed in.

Days of lockdown

I have lost count as to what day we are in but it does not really matter at the end of the day. Life continues not necessarily as normal but almost normal. Feels a little bit like holidays at home with a bit of working in between.
Late breakfasts with more cooked stuff than normal, like GF pancakes, GF waffles, fried breakfast etc.

Easter Egg Hunt in the forest

The great Pukeatua Easter Egg hunt

Mr bunny was terribly sorry this year, he had an accident and lost all of his eggs on the way through a hole in his bag. So all the lovely easter eggs are now spread across most of the farm, ~10 acres.
