Our new pet

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!

I love details, hence macro photography is always a cool thing for me.
Here’s a picture of one of our common visitors, a praying mantis. While common, I still find them fascinating little critters.

Ducks versus cats versus chicken

Funny to see the cat getting quite intimidated by the arrival of the ducks behind her and starting to freak and run away when one of the ducks started picking the cat’s tail.

It’s been a long time we had some cute calfies arriving here. Yesterday was the day 3x cute new calfies arriving. They walked down the driveway into the shelter and are now happily mixing and mingling with the horses.
