The foal is now 17 days old and we’ve called her Charlotte. Thanks Tom for suggesting the name.
Today she is enjoying her first experience with rain.
Every day we wake up to a wonderful variety of birds. The birds love to eat the grain that we feed to the horses. Sometimes, we will find the birds sitting in the horse’s feed bowl eating the grain along with the horse. These photos were taken by Chris Hankanson November 2015 @ Magpie Creek Farmstay.
‘The farmstay was the perfect space to spread out with young children.
The kids loved watching the horses, playing in the pool, feeding the chooks and dancing on the lawns.
The clawfoot baths were a treat for us all. Plenty of room for cups of tea or BBBQs on the large deck.
We had a great family reunion at Magpie Creek. …….. Naomi and Family
We’ve enjoyed a lovely visit to the farm from Ryota, Ryusaku, Yosuke and Daichi – who are currently attending second year at JOSHO KEIKO High School Osaka Japan.
The boys didn’t like Vegimite- but they did like our BBQ. Staying at the farm was a new life experience, they helped do the washing up and learnt how to hang the washing on the clothes line. There was lots of spare time to go for bush walks, watch the stars and constellations – and even find the Southern Cross in the night sky. Travis had lots of fun playing games with our friends from Osaka.
