Random photos of a day on the farm

A bit later than I had hoped, but as promised photos of my daughter and SIL's little hobby farm.
They have purchased 21 acres in the beautiful Flinders Ranges at Quorn.
(Thank you to K. Harrison for some of these photos)

Our youngest daughter, son, Magic the mini pony and Oscar the dog.

Number one grandson having fun with the 'pet' snake...

Say cheese...

These puppies have since been sold...

'Tom' the siamese cross farm cat...
Magic the mini pony, not impressed at all with all the attention.
We had a lovely day with a barbeque lunch, twas very cold though, and we were glad to get home to a nice warm fire.

Things have been pretty busy here of late, with working and a trip to Port Lincoln, I haven't had much spare time to blog.

Best wishes to you all,



  1. oh it has been so cold. I keep on cranking the heater up here.

    Great photos Tania.

  2. Every time I see photos of yor part of the world, I am reminded of how beautiful it is, and how much I need to get back there.

    It's been a while.

    The mini pony is sooo gorgeous. I'd better make sure my 3 year old doesn't see the photos, or she'll want one for sure - we live in a horsey area, and she's already pony crazy!

    Thanks for sharing :-)
