The magnificent Guinness has been busy with Whiskey, and is soon to become a father! Here is Sapphire giving Guinness a snuggle at the front door – such a loving, gentle, giant scruff. If you adore Irish Wolfhounds and would like to be on the list for a pup, let me know at email@example.com
This magnificent Satin Bowerbird found his was into my living room and was frantically admiring himself in the mirror above the mantlepiece. I approached slowly and picked him up gently to take him outside. He stayed sitting on my finger for several minutes – enough for me to reach the phone from my pocket andContinue reading “Blue Satin”
Sunny days and some rain have greened things up beautifully around Redleaf Farm. There are blossoms, daffodills, new lambs and naughty piglets everywhere, and a feisty goose is nesting by the front door – beware visitors! I caught this little fellow having a chat this afternoon… he’ll be looking good for early December Xmas partying!
I can’t insert a video here, but if you’d like to see how Phoenix uses tractor to pull out his loose tooth, hit the link and see some crazy farm fun! I love the combination of panic and bravado on his face in anticipation!
There is a lovely feature on Redleaf Farm in December 2013 Highlife magazine… read about us, and see some lovely farm pics, here. HIGHLIFE RedLeaf

They are cute now, but in about 10 weeks they will be suckling pork on the menu of some of the finest restaurants! In the highlands it can be foundContinue reading “More Piglets!”
It has been raining. A lot. Yesterday Sam decided to tie the pirate ship together by the creek in case the water level reached it’s bows… he neglected to then tie it on to something. Luckily it snagged on a branch which prevented it from floating away completely. A couple of the chairs on higherContinue reading “The big wet”
Earlier this week we had a film crew shooting a final ‘casting episode’ with Chef Colin Fassnidge of the Four in Hand Hotel. Colin and Sam caught and cooked a suckling pig, with each sharing wisdom about various aspects of the process in between the catching and the cooking. It was a fun day, andContinue reading “Discovery…”
We celebrated Phoenix’s birthday with a pirate party at Redleaf Creek. The pirate ship was moved to a new position, with the ‘plank’ going into the creek. A treasure hunt, the flying fox, a waterfall abseil and suckling pork rolls kept everyone happy! The pirate ship through the spit-roast smoke-haze… Scurvy Sam and Ruthless RexContinue reading “Creek Pirates”
