Around the farm

Hooty is getting closer to her due date and her udder is filling nicely. She likes to race me up the raceway when I ride the quad up in the mornings with her feed but I have noticed the 'racing' has slowed considerably over the last few days. She looks good - can't wait to see what she produces.

Bady seems to be feeling good at the moment and tried to show off for me today - I wish he wouldn't though! I would be much happier if he would saunter around quietly rather than try and hoon everywhere like a young'un. I keep waiting for him to fall flat on his face! I've opened up the gate to his paddock to give him access to the race which has quite a lot of grass in it - He thinks that's 'ace thanks mum' although the yearlings are not so sure that they want their Uncle B quite so far away. They'll cope.

It's comfy to stand like this

Portia and Maxi spend their nights in the yards and get to graze the race during the day. It's pretty bare but clearly they are finding enough if Maxi's belly is anything to go by. No photos of Maxi today but Portia was very interested in the camera so I took some photos of her.

and her wondrous ears

Everyone else is good - Penny Lane and Little China Girl are grazing up the road at the moment whilst we have some trees in our front paddock attended to. Unfortunately the tree people have only been out once as the weather disintegrated completely when they got started. Hopefully we will have a good run of weather soon so they can be in and out and life can get back to normal (what ever that is!) around here.
