It’s been a long time we had some cute calfies arriving here. Due to the bovine tuberculosis (TB) we had no new calves for the last 2.5 years. The last additions were Agnes Moo, Abigail Nosy Moo and Angela Moo in 2017.

Abigail Moo left us two weeks ago and yesterday was the day 3x cute new calfies arrived. They nicely and friendly walked down the driveway into the shelter and are now happily mixing and mingling with the horses.

On top of that, we had some rain yesterday and overnight. Yay! Bring on 2020.

Our 2 little baby goats are called Muddy Valley Twi and Muddy Valley La. They love bouncing around in their paddock and up onto the things in their playground.

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.

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.

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.
