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.

Drylands – no rain in sight

We have not seen much rain in more than 2 months now but rather hot, sunny weather with wind. Both dries out the land, particularly the hillsides facing the Kaipara where the wind blows from and which the hot afternoon sun hits.

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.
