Hello from us! was created by Tui Ridge
Hi everyone, thought it was time to join up and join in [8D] (I have been lurking a bit...)

We are on 15 acres just outside Pukekohe - moved here in april 2010 - my first experience of land > 1/4 acre :p

Hubby works full time +, i'm at college full time - studying to be a Naturopath and Medical Herbalist and we have 2 over-active boys 6 and 4

oh and we've decide to start breeding Alpacas - 13 strong start up herd, just waiting for the babies now... :D

Me and hubby and 2 boys, Alpacas, Arapawa sheep, Lowline cattle, lots and lots of chooks and ducks ;)

hi Tui Ridge
Welcome to the LSB family :)
I was born n bred up your way ( well at Waiuku) so kinda know your area ( even though and down in the Manawatuu these days )
:) hope you have other animals to , :) as from what i have heard 13 Alpacas might not keep up with the grass on 15acres :)
I like Alpacas .. they are lovely little animals :)

5 retired Greyhounds ( Bridgette , Lilly, GoGo,Sam and now Lenny) 15 friendly sheep all of whom are named and come when you call them :) , 2 goats, Mollie and Eee Bee :
Olive trees , .. old bugger doing the best he can with no money or land :)

Goats!!!! That's want you need... you probably don't realise it yet but you need goats!!!
They are fun and are friendly and LOVE cuddles and there are heaps of goat nutters on here to help you out with their needs. They will need a shelter but that;s just a tiny thing compared to the joy they will bring you. You can milk them and the milk is just the best!!! If you're going to be a homeopath, well, goats milk is the best milk for consumption. I don't know how I managed life without my goats. I have nine and wouldn't part with them for the world!
