Billy has also arrived - he's a large and splendid 18-month old billy goat. Sadly his former owner could no longer care for him.
Another new guest is the lovely Peanut, a very elderly chestnut horse with a large white splotch on her forehead. Though she has no top teeth she is eating fine, and has put on a bit of weight since she arrived. She has moved into the cow paddock, and hangs out with Thunder, who is looking nice and smart with a recent fringe trim!
We've also been busy working on the wetland area, which will be a home to ducks, frogs, and other wildlife. Fencing, planting, and gardening continues, and our boundary fence is now complete. We've also put in a small duckpond in the top paddock. Our next project is a barn to provide extra winter shelter, store hay etc.
Those of you who can make it to the Sanctuary working bee on the 31st will be able to meet our new friends - see the post below for more details!
