The property is a working stud farm for horse breeding and agistment. The property spreads over 165 acres of paddocks. As there may be as much as 20 horses and 6 or 8 bulls in some paddocks, please keep on the right side of the fences.
The operator, Dolly, of the stud farm will be on site at least in the morning and afternoon of each day to feed the horses.
Our alpaca, Tsunsul, wanders around the property and will probably say hello. Please note that Tsunsul likes to reach over your shoulder and smell you and be near people but may become fearful and withdraw or may spit if you try to touch her!
Tsunsul has very much the temperament of a cat - curious of her own account but if you show interest in her, she will feign complete disinterest. just stand there quietly and she may feel comfortable enough to come and sniff you. She often comes to the carport front yard for an early morning feed from about 6.30 or 7am and again later in the afternoon, if she hasn't been satisfied with the hay in the back shed!
Sheets and pillow cases are available at an additional charge.
Doonas, pillows and blankets are supplied
