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. 🙂

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.

Pretty visitors at times

Sometimes we have pretty little visitors, like those rosellas, parakeets or phesants. Today some rosellas flew by and landed on the deck balustrade.
