Day 205 of 365

Local farm supplies firm called in with a giftbag - a nice thought, some farmers are really suffering after all the
flooding. We are getting there!
(There were 2 Peanuts slabs...!)
See you tomorrow,

Day 202 of 365

Preparing the grass rations for the cows this morning - Causmag behind and water in front!
('Calcined magnesium' prevents metabolic problems in new calvers.)
Another 4 inches overnight!
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 201 of 365

Yes, you guessed it; more rain!
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 200 of 365

Standing at the top of the hill, calling the cows, hoping they will come to us instead of having to go down and bring them up.
Time to take them home to the main farm so we don't have to walk too many calves home!
(I'm up to Day 200!!)
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Obligatory first calf photo!
Yes, calving has started. Here we are bringing Mother and Son home from the runoff.
Notice that the fencing is finished!
(Late afternoon, odd light!)
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.

Day 198 of 365

'Hebe' a NZ native plant.
It was a cooler morning and this fellow was very groggy, still trying to wake up and warm up!
See you tomorrow,
Raewyn.
