Thoughts to any one that has been affected by fires. Hope you and your animals are safe and sound. Please post if you need help with grazing, hay or anything. :)
A lot of brave , caring people helped out today, moving stock etc. Big thmbs up to Nationwide Horse Transport who were in the thick of it moving mares and foals from studs in the area.

Once again Cantabrians showed they come together when needed in a crisis.Seems to happen quite a lot these days.

We should really count ourselves lucky that there was time to get the stock out.
I cant but help think what it must be like for farmers and lsbers in australia to have to leave their farms and their stock behind and just get out, there isnt time to move their stock.

It has been quite windy out that way this evening, but they think the Prebbleton fire is under control at last.

Just read article in Herald, friend has a LSB on Shands Road, just emailed to see if she/her block okay. Scary stuff. She had said that it had been horribly hot at night thanks to Nor-wester.

I don't miss that bloody wind, remember from my childhood how draining it was.

Take a break...while I take care of your home, your block, your pets, your stock! [;)] PM me...

I hadn't heard about it till now, as if the quakes weren't bad enough. And the worst things is some were not insured.
I don't miss the dryness of Canterbury at all.

The story of the elderly couple who have lost everything and were not insured because they had let it lapse while overseas, then found they could not get new insurance post-quake is so tragic.

My poultry grapevine tells me there were 18,000 laying hens killed in the fire :-( along with a feed mill and office but the house was saved.

Terrible happenings, I feel so helpless being so far away.
