Country Comes to Town

We just had to share these wonderful pictures with you - it was a very special day for some very special members of our Te Akau family - namely Nola and Lane Bridgman and Meg and Archie Hazlett.

What was this auspicious occasion?

None other than Matamata Primary School's "Ag Day"- Lane with Rosie, Archie and Spartacus, Meg and Hugo as well as Nola and Daisy.  Lane and Nola's romney x suffolks courtesy of the Autridge and Wills farms and the romneys from the Brosnan's farm.

We hear it was a lovely day, the lambs behaved beautifully- which is good news as anything can happen on the day! We were pretty taken with the tangerine ribbons too - how appropriate!

We are told that the kids had a great time grooming their lambs " like horses" and helped each other out - well done guys - very proud of you all! As will Archie and Meg's mum Pam, our assistant trainer, who is currently in the South with our South Island campaigners.
