New year, new life

January 13, 2011

Sorry folks, today a posting of another kind, and nothing about the elixir of gods, wine. But since we live in the countryside in Central Victoria, there are plenty of stories about farming, livestock and nature in general.

The very first day of the new year, Ellie was born to the mare Omar Shah, at my friend Gayle’s farm in Yarra Glen. It was a wonderful sight, to see the newborn fowl in the paddock when we dropped in the morning after our new years party.

I have the great pleasure to introduce to you this newcomer to the equine world in 2011.
