Kids had such fun at our kids camp this December. They made art, explored nature, swam in the dam, had pony rides and generally had a blast.
It's hotting up at The Blue Hippo, summer has arrived. The Blue Hippo hounds just love swimming in the dam and our gentle giant had made friends with two of the smallest sheep.
We've just started renovating our old farm cottage. Hopefully in the not too distant future it will be a romantic nature getaway spot. Gables have been plastered, next step is the new roof. Our sheep have been supervising the process.
What a wonderful weekend this group of boys had as they stepped from childhood into adolescence. Our Western society has so few rituals that welcome transitions. We are always delighted to host such meaningful events on the farm. Activities included raft building, a night on the mountain and a sweat lodge. An amazing time of bonding and growth for fathers and sons.
We're very excitedly waiting for our sheep to arrive and are busy creating a safe place for them to be in at night. Our old stone cottage has had her roof removed and is waiting for her facelift. We're looking forward to having another beautiful space to share with our Blue Hippi visitors.
