Good morning all,

My name is Robert, my wife is Donna, and we have bought a property in Pukeoware. We have a barn that we will fit out as a dwelling once we get council approval. Already have moved 14 sheep on, and have had a partially successful run at a crop of grain.

We look forward to trawling through the files section.

Regards
Robert and Donna.

Hi Robert. Welcome to the forum. We are about 60Km East of you (ATCF) at Pipiroa.

Do NOT cross this paddock! ... Unless you can do it in 9 seconds, 'cos the bull can do it in 10!

Welcome Robert and Donna! :)

How big is your place - grazing area, particularly? What sort of sheep?
Living in something that isn't a house is pretty cool. I always like that our house isn't one.

Hi Ruth,

We have 3.5 hectares, with about 2 for the sheep. Sheep are mainly Wiltshire but were told they were crossed with Arapawa, but they don't look anything like them, could make them a bit hardier though.
The barn is a work in progress, will post some photo's when it starts to look better.
