Horses ready for the next storm

Another storm has been announced last night, so early this morning we finished the horse shelter area and moved the two boys over so they are going to have a more comfortable place during the day when the weather closes in.

Metservice forecasted torrential rain and wind up to 120km/h (again). It’s been wet and windy lately.

All we are missing now are the fence rails (plus a small water tank – for the time being they have a water bucket).

Hope the boys will enjoy their new place. 🙂

New Fluffballs

One afternoon, there was Wasabi waddling around the paddock and there was a bunch of fluffballs tumbling after her, 15 little duckling.

Drylands

The last few months were pretty dry with no rainfall other than a few drops that pretty much instantly evaporated upon hitting the ground.
I think the last rain was some time before Christmas last year which would make it three months with no rain at all.

Look across the Kaipara valley with rainclouds in the background and diffuse light coming through the clouds.

Finally some rain?

It’s been a long time without any rain. Not sure how much this will be but anything is better than nothing.
