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.

The weather has turned from somewhat wet and warm to rather wet and cold. The horses have been rugged up just like the goats. The rodent infestation has become noticeable, so we started putting up more traps on top of the traps and bait stations we already had.

The warm and humid weather produced lovely field mushrooms to be harvested. Earlier we harvested basil, limes and potatoes.

Erwien came back this years with a new bunch of ducklings and proudly presented them, just like last year. She’s such a good mummy.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.
