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.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.

Flooding – groundhog day

This year was special and I had not yet seen the water that high. Kumeu and Waimauku townships flooded too and other suburbs in West Auckland. For some it was pretty bad and I feel sorry for the affected people – and animals.

Lockdown – here we go again

If not doing office work, we fix fences, move animals around, collect, cut and chop firewood, dig trenches, build goat houses 😉 and fix all sorts of things that break over time.

Goodbye Mocha

Today we said goodbye to Mocha, one of our Alpaca boys who was born here back in 2016. He went to a new home with a new buddy.

Water everywhere – in the midst of winter

It’s been rather wet, foggy and cold in the last couple of days. The cats spent more time inside and expressing a form of cabin fever when awake but they are mostly asleep.

The horses are asking for more food, the chickens are hiding in their house and the ducks – well, the ducks are in their element.
