Pruning and the Herd goes
We are about half way with the pruning.
Lucky the weather is OK so far. We had a few really frosty mornings -like today- then later it is sunny and quiet warm.
I am sad
It was easy to walk them up the truck, everyone left at the same time. We had problems lately with Peter going out visiting the neighbours He discovered that the measly electric fence wire is no match to his size and power. One morning we found him on the front loan merrily scratching his head on the 10 year old, very slow growing, New Zealand Christmas trees. You can imagine the result… We were thinking for some time now to change to sheep. They are smaller, need less pasture, bring nearly the same income per acre as cattle, can be let into the vineyard to graze and don’t have to be transported to the abattoir.
The Christmas in July function went well. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and they’ve promised to come back next year
