Country Diary for week ending 20/05/13

On the farm, it started out a much sunnier week and I spent a couple of days out and about on the tractor letting the horses free-range where they met the goats and the electric fence.  A red morning sky was a powerful portent of the rain on Thursday.

On the wildlife front, I learned more about our Snubian and Monkey faced goats, found my first red legged earth mite, admired a flock of parrots, sympathised with our moulting bantam chicken, and pondered the type of predator that dragged a cow leg in.

The property now has a range of different fungi and some beautiful purple hovea.
