It's been a while since the last post, but we have been kept busy with new arrivals.

Macey, a little heifer was born to Di. At about ten days old she caught a tummy bug and we nearly lost her, but prompt action by the vet pulled her round and she is doing fine now. Here she is the day she was born.

Here are photos of Erg (top) and Macey (bottom) more recently.


Five dairy cattle arrived from Bungendore ahead of their owner, who will be living in the other cottage.

Twiggy, an illawarra shorthorn jersey cross.

Taurus, a jersey bull calf.

 Fifi and Blossom, jerseys.

Rosy, also jersey.

Two local cows, the black girl is a dexter named Heidi and the red one is an angus dexter cross named Jaffa. Jaffa is pregnant and due in April.

Seven hens and a rooster, here are four of the hens lounging in the door of the henhouse.
