Back at work now after two lovely weeks off.
We managed to get the stable floor concreted thanks to the invaluable help from a friend - cheers Adrian! Will put photos up soon.
Also got two miniature Crab apple trees and four camelleia shrubs for the garden. Martin and another friend Mark pulled an old shed down and cleaned up all the mess so the place is looking very smart for spring.
Martin is building a BBQ seating area, hopefully ready for this Summer and we plan to relocate the chicken crew to a new paddock enclosure. The girls are laying well and we are drowning in eggs so plan to sell some them at the gate.
The horses all got lots of attention over the last two weeks and all looking good. Nemo had a lesson for the first time in over 4 weeks and went really well. Tig is feeling the effects of spring but looking great. The foals are full of beans and playing games from first light. They also sleep in a sun a lot so are probably growing again!
Lessons with the young riders I teach are all going well and everyone is much more motivated in the sunshine.
We finished the holiday by spending the day at the Waikanae Spring show in the beautiful spring sunshine
Back to work and reality this week, with a new riding pupil as well so things will be busy as usual. Thank goodness Daylight Saving starts soon!
