The new kid on the (lifestyle)  block

Some childhood dream became true on Wednesday : Rusty arrived from Tauranga.

Such a lovely character,  not shy but gentle, a bit droopy looking.

Prefers to have his hooves cleaned from rear left clockwise and knows how to show you : just lifts them before you ask. Such a funny character. 

Will be starting with groundwork this week weather permitting. 

Trust my lovely wife will assist me. 🙂

New Fluffballs

One afternoon, there was Wasabi waddling around the paddock and there was a bunch of fluffballs tumbling after her, 15 little duckling.

Drylands

The last few months were pretty dry with no rainfall other than a few drops that pretty much instantly evaporated upon hitting the ground.
I think the last rain was some time before Christmas last year which would make it three months with no rain at all.

Look across the Kaipara valley with rainclouds in the background and diffuse light coming through the clouds.

Finally some rain?

It’s been a long time without any rain. Not sure how much this will be but anything is better than nothing.
