Every Thing Comes to .... She who Waits !!!!!

The young boys...watching the goings on....today from their new field !

Haggis having a good old scratch...tonight in his new field, with Dougal ...

Whey Hey ............its started !!!

Repairing the broken culverts today in the little paddock

Ah ........... Bliss !!


Well its all going on here at Zanzibah !!


What a busy few weeks we have had, taking advantage of the gorgeous weather before the snow fall the weekend before Easter....my parents have gone back home for a well earned rest after a very busy couple of weeks.....I thought I was in for a rest today but it wasn't to be !!

On Tuesday evening, after completing the fencing to divide the boys alpaca field it was time for the big move ......!

Haggis and Dougal were off to pastures new, so Tuesday night was time for the big move...the boys did me proud and Dougal actually lead the way into his new field, after putting all that work into the fencing, I have also run an electric wire on the cows as they wreck the fences scratching .....we have catered for this requirement in their new field and they have a lovely big scratching post, tonight Haggis was giving it a good try out....!

So there was me set for a quiet day........NOT !

There was a knock at the door and the fun began.....I was busy all afternoon guess what is happening here......something I have wanted for years....and true to form....as the title suggests......I have waited and waited, but tonight...it has started..I am very excited indeed...it is all happening here at the moment.....

My pond has begun....!! by next week it will be completed....how great is that it has only taken me eight years to get it.....but its happening alright !!!!!! YIPEE !!!!

Before the pond could be started it was time to finish off the water problems in the little baby paddock, where there was a broken old culvert...it has been dug out and traced back to a point where it can be fixed....then it was time to go to the bottom of the hill where there was also a broken drain...this has also been fixed today and is running away. Before we fill the repaired drains in..we have to wait to make sure that they re running away it will make a huge difference getting these fixed.

As last night was the last day I had help from my parents it was time to site the new 'Piggy Palace'..where there's a will, there's a way...and we managed to get it into its new place ready for the little piggies to move into it in a few weeks time....

Niggy, Noggy and Norka are absolutely great....... just spend 5mins with these fantastic creatures...and you can't help being cheered up.....their happy go lucky personalities are infectious....and it wouldn't be long before you were won over by their cuteness !!

Back to today...the pond is in the very early stages of being created....but I have managed to take a couple of pictures...to give an idea where it is in relation to the house and the new alpaca fields......

I have picked a perfect spot...I can see it from my kitchen window...looking across the new little boys field down across the 10 acre field and over to the site of the new pond....

I am ready with the binoculars and my aim is to have Swans oneday on the pond....that is my goal and I hope it happens ...all in good time....I hope to attract a variety of wildlife into the area I have designated for the new pond, it will have an island with a few trees planted in the middle.....

Life is great when you have dreams...and its even better when those dreams can be made into reality.....a little bit of dreaming can take you a very long way in life.....

You just have to be brave enough to dream......and the rest is up to you....

As I have often said..........'Follow your Dreams...and stay True to your Heart'

Those bad times...just make the Good Times....seem a whole lot better !!!!!!

Like most people in life, I have had my fare share of difficult times ..... I am three years down the line, I am still here....and most of all....I am still following my dream ....


And Enjoying it....after all that's what life is all about isn't it !

Yes, that is what life is all about! Good for you, Jayne.
I am so glad you will have a pond. It will be fun watching it come to life on your blog.

I can't wait to see the pond photo's. I really miss mind, we have a little duck pond here which I intend to make a feature of and get some ducks.

Life is what you make it, dreams are there to be followed.

And I thought we had been busy. You are still putting us all to shame. It sounds as though your farm will be animal heaven soon and you will really begin to enjoy all the hard work.
