WINDMILL UPDATE

Good news, our insurer has agreed to REPLACE the windmill.  We had thought it may be been possible to repair but when the windmill man came he didn't agree.  So the money will be in the bank account tonight and we can go ahead and organise the work to be done.

I had booked 13,000 litres of water to be delivered today so we are now back to a comfortable level; things were getting drastically low.

Elsewhere we are in the process of buying some pigs; one male and two females.  They need to be weaned and whatever else has to happen and we expect to pick them up from the breeders in about 2 months.

 So another learning curve for us.Some happy snaps we took when we were at the breeders last weekend.  Stay tuned! Oink Oink!

  1. If they escape they will follow you like a dog.Quite entertaining to watch.
    Pigs can really feel the heat, so a shady cool spot is good for the Summer.

    1. Hi Margaret, thanks for the tip about the heat. I am watchful of this also because I don't want them to be sunburned. They seem quite entertaining creatures all round.

  2. Barb, good news about the windmill. Water is always an issue when you live out of town, isn't it? We had a little rain this afternoon but not a great deal. Perhaps there will be more overnight.

    1. I've never had to worry about water before, as we had heaps of water storage at Boonah, but it sure comes home to you when something like this happens. I had to get quite creative with conserving water!

  3. Well, it is a relief not to have to also do battle with an insurance company.
