I would hope that our horses think that the feeders are very nice people, because we got them an extra special Christmas present just in time for the Waimauku Pony Club Christmas celebrations.

And so Shady already had his first ride in the new horse trailer. Although he was a bit sceptical at first, he seems to be enjoying the smoother rides. We certainly enjoy the easy clean interior and the extra gear space. Meanwhile we will be fixing up the old trailer, making it ready for sale.

Three people were grooming Shady and painting his back – not sure whether he liked it particularly, however he did not seem to mind.

Great weather it was too, so everyone had a good time.

Quiet but busy during another Covid-19 lockdown

I picked a few pictures to keep you entertained and maybe – once we are out of lockdown – you may want to drop by for a stay and enjoy some time off. We will be opening in level 2.

Flooding – groundhog day

This year was special and I had not yet seen the water that high. Kumeu and Waimauku townships flooded too and other suburbs in West Auckland. For some it was pretty bad and I feel sorry for the affected people – and animals.

Lockdown – here we go again

If not doing office work, we fix fences, move animals around, collect, cut and chop firewood, dig trenches, build goat houses 😉 and fix all sorts of things that break over time.

Water everywhere – in the midst of winter

It’s been rather wet, foggy and cold in the last couple of days. The cats spent more time inside and expressing a form of cabin fever when awake but they are mostly asleep.

The horses are asking for more food, the chickens are hiding in their house and the ducks – well, the ducks are in their element.

More foraging

A few days ago there was finally a window with no rain and a bit of time, so managed to fill 4 feed bags with pine cones. Pine cones are excellent fire starters, full of resin and a rather large surface, thus burn really well, long and hot.
