The last winter has been so terribly wet and turned all paddocks into mud that we decided to have the horses in a shelter and feed them rather than having them wading through mud and effectively thrashing the paddocks.

We orded a horse shelter kitset from Outpost and while we were onto that one, we also got a new chook house kitset to replace the old playhouse that has been serving as a chook house since we moved here.

Progress has been made, the chook house is now finished and the horse shelter is in progress. Yay!

The weather has turned from somewhat wet and warm to rather wet and cold. The horses have been rugged up just like the goats. The rodent infestation has become noticeable, so we started putting up more traps on top of the traps and bait stations we already had.

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.
