We have an interesting & varied collection here in our family

... the dogs, cats, cockatoo, the alpacas, chooks, ponies, the sheep & our various visitors ...

OUR FAMILY

Sparky is our Chuhuahua, but, in his tiny mind he thinks he's an attack Doberman. so don't be surprised, or offended, if Sparky greets you with a bark, he's all talk and harmless!

Billy (Slater) is our Whippet, a very friendly and tremendously affectionate young man, born in 2006.

There are 2 Cats, Butch (Cassidy) & Orlando THE big wheels on the property, saunter around, doing exactly what they want, going where they please & keeping everyone else in their rightful place on the pecking order. But otherwise exceptionally friendly guys, especially where warmth, comfort & food come into the equation.

There's our Cockatoo, Cockie we call him, because that's what everyone else calls him & why swim against the tide, he will talk to you, doesn't bite, loves people to pay attention to him. He's probably the centre of attraction too.

Bees, there are 5 hives on the property. They don't bother you if you don't bother them.

Koalas, they don't live here permanently, but we recognize the same ones that come through on their way to and from somewhere else. Some stay for months. We've had mothers stay with here their babies for a year or more, until the babies grew and they moved on.

Then there's a mass of wild animals that come and go, especially the birds.

So we're pretty lucky really, we have a very interesting and varied collection here at Codrington Gardens.
