New fluffy arrivals

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 storm that was supposed to come was not too bad after all. A bit of rain that we loved very much and quite some wind with a bit of thunder and lightning. All that would have been easy to take, if it wasn’t for: Moonshine.
