Welcome on our “Living on a farm in Slovakia – Blog”. In May 2008 we have bought a smallholding in Slovakia without ever having seen it and we have moved to our farm in September 2008. Since then we have started to get acquainted with our neighbours, learn the Slovak language, renovate the house, regain our land from nature and we have actually started to farm on our land in spring 2009. On this blog you can follow our progress and setbacks.
Have fun reading it!

Feeding rack - latest fashion
We believe that it is healthy to get exercise when you are pregnant. This includes other mamals as sheep and goats. Therefore our animals sleep, get feed and water on different places so they have to walk.
Arnold just made some new hay racks for our sheep. The ones in the stables are in use by our goats and our last year sheep rack has been taken over by our horses. It is a nice iron one but the smallest sheep try (and sometimes manage) to get inside. So now we have two wooden ones which we can adjust if the sizes don't fit.
