Our two bobby calves are growing and starting to eat grass. They both are enjoying spring time. “Mooh”, life is good.
Saturday was the day of the bi-annual alpaca maintenance
The first days of summer greeted with a mixed bag of weather. The first day was coldish and still wet with quite some wind. But that all eased down on the second day which turned into a nice, dry and hot summer day featuring blue sky and green grass.
Nothing much really has happened over the last few weeks and hence our updates have been rather sparse.
One thing did happen however: Think it really turned spring.
It’s that time of the year again where the cats and dogs in the neighbourhood start bringing in little chicks and ducklings.
While a few of last year’s rescue ducks have returned sporadically throughout the year, they now seem to be returning in larger numbers and bringing their boy friends along.
Who likes the weather when it’s raining and storming outside? No one – well, maybe the odd people that are happy that their grass is growing, like us humans inside. Oh, and the ducks! The ducks love it.
Time to head into the valley and do some paddock maintenance. Checking fences and gates, continued to dig a drainage trench, checked up on the alpacas and moos, mowed some swamp grass and sprayed some other areas of swap grass. Chopped some firewood, loaded up the trainer and brought it back up to the house to keep us warm over the next couple of days.
