Maintenance day

We made use of the long weekend – yes, it’s Auckland Anniversary weekend – and did some farm maintenance. We chopped the dead or fallen over Manuka trees, tensioned fence wires and added a new wire at the base so that naught Joey would not squeeze through under the fence.

The cut trees and branches had to be moved over the wetland and you had to be careful not to get stuck with your boots.

Then we finished the afternoon with a picnic underneath the favourite picnic tree.

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.

A visit to the cow

We did a roundtrip down the hill for pine cone collecting, fence fixing, alpaca seeing and moo encounter.

Hard work weekend

A weekend of alpaca shearing, vet attendance, fixing fences and water troughs.
