A quick snap of Hattie and one of her babies. No longer the Ranbutans they once were but the cutest bundle of quills you ever have seen!
A friend of the farm who helps take care of the smaller animals at weekends but who studies in town during the week found a bundle of fur huddled in a gutter outside Wat Jet Lod (an ancient Brahmin-style temple to the west of the city) when he was leaving university about 15 days ago. On closer inspection he found it was a very young puppy abandoned and distressed! So he took him home, gave him a shower and some healthy food and painstakingly removed the discarded chewing gum which had become entangled in the pups’ fur. After a few days and a lot of tlc both of them headed to the farm where we readily adopted this newest member of our animal family! We have called him ‘Jet’ after the temple where he was found. Jet is already proving to be a very intelligent fellow and learns so quickly! We think he is quite a high proportion of Alsatian but we’ll get a better idea as he gets older. He is being very, very spoilt and we have just fallen for him, he is so lovable! Now that’s what you call ‘Jet’ power!!
It’s that time of year when we have to prune the trees around the farm not only to make it look neat but to allow more sunlight into the undergrowth and gardens.
This year it was quite a mammoth task as you can see form the snap below but after a hard day’s work by our devoted team we were nice, neat and tidy again!
Pruning comes but once a year!...and for that we are very thankful!!
