Winter is Here!!


The rain is here, but luckily down on the farm is warm and dry thanks to our new shelters. They are awesome I love to lie under them, and I don't even mind the rain so much.

They are especially great for the goats, who need really good shelter. They hate the rain and don't have a protective coat, so need good shelter to stay warm and dry.






We have had heaps of farm animals in lately, a couple of pigs, sheep, goats, horses, plenty of roosters and even some white pigeons. If you know of anyone who might be keen to adopt them, please refer to our website http://www.spca.org.nz/

Here is a little snippet of a wee piglet, who has now gone to a foster home, until he is big enough to adopt. At last I will get some peace and quiet, he is pretty cute though.

Don't forget to watch TVOne this Sunday at 7.30pm. The programme 'Sunday' is doing a report on factory farming of pigs in New Zealand. Find out why nearly half a million people will have grave doubts about eating factory farmed pork products after watching this show.

In more education news, we have another new member of our team. Her name is 'Dippy', because half of her tail looks like it has been dipped in chocolate. She is very friendly, and loves to crawl down peoples jumpers. Here is a pic of her, take a look.

Well thats all from me for now, I will try and update my next blog a little sooner. See ya oink oink Chester.
