Hi! I am a friend of Ae’s and I am tasked to undertake some of the management of his Thung Dong Farm Stay web-site. The picture of Ae, above, was sent in by a recent guest to the farm and so as a change from all the animals blogs I thought that this photo of the farmer himself might make a nice change? Ah well never mind! More animals next time!
Milk on Tap!
Just a quick update on our ‘baby’ Naak!
We can watch him grow with every day that passes; he is the most gentle of buffaloes and loves a scratch and a hug! He’s a big baby still as can been seen from his ‘milky’ mouth just after feeding from his mother Nohn. He’s a lucky fellow indeed and will continue to take advantage of ‘milk on tap’ until he’s at least one year old!
Thung Dong Farm, our farm, is surrounded by jungle, National Parks and hills and mountains and so it is only natural that we have the pleasure of being regularly visited by all manner of creatures not including our own animals! Civet Cats, Leopard Cats, Pangolins birds of many varieties including Eagles and owls but it still came as a bit of a surprise when a young Monitor Lizard took up residence in a tree near the store room. We called him Charlie and he has been with us now for over 2 months; he is quite shy but surprisingly tame. He eats insects and occasionally an egg or two. We hope he stays with us; shy or not Charlie is very welcome!
