This year with the drought hay is like gold in our region. So, for the first time we decided to make our own hay and keep it, instead of getting contractors to cut, turn, bale and sell it. But with Peter unable to do manual labour at present we had to rely on the kindness of friends and family, who turned up to help us get in the harvest. We produced over 300 bales in total...

My grandfather also came out and trimmed all the goats hooves; and one of our neighbours took some of our lambs to market for us. So, thank you dear friends and family for rallying around us and looking after Peter.
