The kids adore him and he is not scared but is growing well. He is the only one left out of three that we found originally. But he’s growing strong and eats well – and very loudly so. The kids feed him and look after him and are cleaning his cage regularly.

At feeding time you have to watch him constantly, he’s a very fast runner with his long legs that are usually hidden underneath his furry tummy.
The other day Jolan just left him on the towel on the floor to get some more food – and gone he was. We found him back in a gap between a book shelf and a wall and the kids managed to operate him out of it, the spikes were proving to be barb like in the gap and even Hog could not get out on his own. But all went well and he’s out there.

The kids want to keep him – I am not too sure about it, but after all he’s very tame and does not curl up any more – so cute!

The wind finally eased down a bit but the arctic blast was still on. With chilly temperatures outside, what’s better than a nice fire? A fire with marshmallows!

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.

Time of the year again: Ducks, ducks, ducks

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.

The animals, the rain and the fire

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 out before the bad weather

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.
