Saturday 13 February 2010

It has been a lovely dry day today and the herd fluffed back up nicely. Kealani retained her coat overnight but has been soaking up the sun all day without it. She obviously heard the weather forecast for a cold night with showers though because she was happy to have it put back on at tea time.

We have been busy cleaning the paddocks today, I have been on muck truck patrol and pay has been on shelter and hay cleaning duties. The manure is actually starting t build up so hopefully the gardeners will be able to get out and prepare their veggie plots soon and come and lighten our load.

As the sun was shining I took the camera out. Star was too nosey to get any more than a head shot but I thought you might like to see her nose anyway!
It took me a while, but I managed to get a nice shot of Duke. He loves to come and give you a kiss as soon as you go in his field so it's hard to get a full picture of him. Duke will be put up for sale soon with his mate Tenzing - I'm trying to hang on for as long as I can because he is adorable and I'll really miss him.
He needs a little trim around the eyes so that he can see properly. I was going to do it today but we ran out of daylight. Another job for tomorrow!
