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.

New critters have arrived

Our 2 little baby goats are called Muddy Valley Twi and Muddy Valley La. They love bouncing around in their paddock and up onto the things in their playground.

Quiet but busy during another Covid-19 lockdown

I picked a few pictures to keep you entertained and maybe – once we are out of lockdown – you may want to drop by for a stay and enjoy some time off. We will be opening in level 2.

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.

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.
