Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. When mummy drives to work each day, she often sees these big colourful birds out in the paddocks or sitting on fences. She says she is never quick enough to take a photo, so she got a photo from a place called Google images to show you what she sees. Sometimes, We see these birds in Farmer Rae’s paddock. Mummy says there is no way she would want any of them in her garden. She says she has enough trouble from Me and Nellie rampaging through her herbaceous gardens, without any added assistance from a peacock. Peacocks came into the Mangamahu valley in the 1920’s and along with turkeys have made themselves at home. They are very noisy and make lots of strange sounds in the early morning. Love Nellie and Jasper the two bestest maremmas in all the land.
