Couldn't resist posting these photos taken yesterday evening after 6.30pm!

We are having weird weather, typical spring I suppose. Fairly cool, it's only 13 C now mid morning and we've had 20 mm of rain already today so far, and it has been fairly windy too, yet the sun is out now. Yesterday was the same showers and sun, sometimes at the same time.

Since the bulls went out with the cows on Sunday we are now checking twice a day to see if any cows are in season, so as to calculate possible calving dates for next year. Seems no time at all since we were checking for calving this year, but the majority are now 2 months old or more.

Still waiting for Moonstone to calve, due on 21st November, she is a 2 year old heifer we gave a second chance to after pregnancy testing empty- and she took it!

So here they are with the stunning backdrop of clouds over the Tararuas, and sunshine in the west!
