The most recent horse in our stables

Tuesday, 9. September 2014

definitely not the youngest.
Well, I am not sure whether this paraphrasing of a Germain saying translates in English – maybe it is GEnglish.  😉

I am speaking about our workhorse in pyjamas, a 1958 Series 2A Land Rover with a zebra pattern paint.

Fire beaters are necessary, but not enough considering our tented lodge in the making.

So we will buy a veld fire fighting unit, and during the winter months she will carry this. For the rest of the year she’ll be a multi-purpose work horse.

To acclimatise her to the the new environment, we take her on a sun downer tour around the farm.
