It’s the time of the year again. Normally we would have 2x calves by now, however with the restrictions around bovine tuberculosis (TB), the local school is not taking any calves for AG-day this year. And since we do not like sheep too much and goats are too high maintenance or we do not support tethering, our little girl opted in for two new baby chicks.

They are now living in a big plastic container with an infrared heat lamp in the lounge and are well looked after by Jolan.

Welcome to the family little chicks!

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.

The warm and humid weather produced lovely field mushrooms to be harvested. Earlier we harvested basil, limes and potatoes.

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.

Our 2 little baby goats are called Muddy Valley Twi and Muddy Valley La. They love bouncing around in their paddock and up onto the things in their playground.
