Hi there - have seen this site before and decided to join. My girls and I are on 3 acres. We have 2 horses, a 19yr old PB Arab Mare and a 22yr old Gisborne Bred Mare. Five sheep, a baby Nubian Buck Goat, Bantams and a domestic mangerie of a Fat Labrador, Shit Zhu and cats.

Frozen pipes this morning have just started to thaw and the water is a bit brown - hoping thats nothing major!

Anyway, Hi from us.

Tracey

Welcome aboard to another 'Nakian :D Beautiful day up here in North Taranaki, after a -1 frost that put 4mm of ice on the ducks' water containers, though Mt. Egmont's looking grand from all directions today :D

Thanks for the welcome - been a bit of an interesting day just discovered pipe has burst under house. So not showers for us tonight. Plumber coming in morning. Not good news that more snow is on its way. Looks beautiful but over it!

Welcome blakegirls! Sorry to hear about your burst pipe!!! I know this weather is quite extreme, but one of the things we learned when living in upstate New York, which has some very long and deep winters, during which the temps don't go above freezing for sometimes weeks on end: leave cupboards where sinks are open at night so it doesn't get so cold where the pipes are, and if it's going to be really cold and you aren't sure if your pipes are lagged, leave the taps on just a slow drip to keep the water moving and keep the pipes from freezing. We were there for 4 winters, the first of which had temps below freezing, day and night, for about 5 weeks. We followed the advice, and never had a burst pipe.

Hi Stu - thanks for your message. Yes, was a cold few days - thank god the snow has been washed away with the rain now but still freezing outside. Mud, mud and more mud in the paddock our bigger mare is in up by the shed's. Gotta love losing your gumboots in it!! Fantastic for the skin - so I've heard lol. I teach at one of the high schools here and we had a no school day Monday. Kids would have loved that!

Little chicken still laying despite the cold. Others too young yet but have the smarts enough to stay tucked up together in their box! Best place to be!
