After being rather busy over the last week before Christmas with a film crew on site and the typical “everything needs to be finished by Christmas” work frantic, we are now all truly in holiday mode.
All at Pukeatua Farmstay wishing you a lovely and relaxed time and a Happy New 2021. May it bring prosperity and happiness.
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.
This year, the nice, hot weather started already mid November and by now, we had no rain for 5 weeks and all local water carriers are booked out until end of January. Finally we had some rain and that filled the tank almost up again so we can enjoy the festive season finally without worrying.
The winter storms and the wet weather was not too good for some of our already damaged pine tress along the middle paddock fence line. So we untied the fence wires and chopped the most damaged and dangerous trees down. All trees fell exactly between the fence posts and we simply tied the wires back
We are slowly but steadily progressing towards our official opening. Plasterboard stoppers have finished, we can now start the painting and breaking through into the existing house. Plumbing to be finished next and floors to be laid. Deck balustrade and spouting.
