Jan Update

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

After several weeks of hot, dry weather, it looked like we were headed for a drought. But this weekend, a long weekend for the Wellington region, it has rained non-stop. A great drought breaker, and desperatley needed. We moved our youngest cria Pandora and Bracken (see our New Years Day update), plus Gidget (born 10 January) into the paddock that contains our hayshed, which they gratefully moved into to shelter from the rain. While this rain is great, in the lead up to the facial eczema season it poses some risks in the future weeks.

If you live in an FE prone area, be extra vigilant!
