An internship at Kaitiaki Farm can be an adventure. This weekend we rescued a lamb from deep mud on the neighbour’s property.
Heloisa and Marina were happy to see the lamb freed. After a few hours her legs warmed up and she walked away. One life saved.
Later that day we found over 100 sheep from another farm had come through a hole in the fence. No sooner had we herded them back through then we found a bull from another property had come through a different fence and was after our cows.
Of course this all means lots of fence work.
And more fence work.
Two skills we always teach our interns are pulling nails…
…and composting. Back to basics for skill-building and learning.
Along with the importance of keeping tools sharp.
Never a dull moment and always a teachable moment. That’s how it is at Kaitiaki.
