Happy for the endless rain to be over

Mr. Shady is happy in the new grass strip. Just two weeks ago the alpacas have been in there and kept it nice and short so he does not get overexcited.

After all that rain, the ground is getting better and the grass has been growing since. It must have been drowned in water before.

Not too long and we can let the new moos (calves) onto the grass as well. We have been walking Cheeky already yesterday and she has been extremely excited about all that new stuff outside the shelter. So many new smells. And she and Jolan will be having their great debut at the Waimauku School AG(ricultural) day on Friday.

Rescue or resident ducks?

Over the last couple of weeks several female Mallard ducks have been released back into freedom. The two which we released two weeks ago have turned into a permanent resident feature.

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.
