First prize for Jolan and Cheeky calf

Today was Waimauku School AG(ricultural) day. For those cityslickers who do not know what AG day is, it is a school day where all school children have the opportunity to showcase their hand-reared calf, lamb or chicken along with a variety of other categories for those unable to rear an animal.

Jolan entered with her calf “Cheeky”. Cheeky is only 5 weeks old, a Herefold-Fresian crossbreed. She has been very sick about two weeks ago and we almost lost her. Thanks to North Vets for their help all went well.

Both girls got two cups, three ribbons and an honours award

First day in a long time without rainy weather, so we went down into the valley for fixing things, moving things and play things.

A video a friend made in summer two years ago. The horse shelter was still under construction at that time. The flightover shows our alpacas in the lower paddock and gives an impression of our lovely hillside spot.

Crisp winter mornings are fun to watch with the fog and the clouds moving, building up and disappearing again.

Flood water fun

The first flood this winter has arrived. Usually, we have 2 or more of those events, but this year is the first time we have been having some fun in it. After all, why not?

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.
