INTERNeX New Zealand: Picture of the week

This week’s picture of the week is a little lamb 🙂 This lamb lives at Blue Duck Station, a group of accommodation lodges set on a working New Zealand farm. This amazing place is an outdoor enthusiast’s playground. Offering a wide range of activities, including clay bird shooting, bush safaris, hunting, horse trekking, jet boating, mountain biking and helicopter trips, Blue Duck Station is a great place to visit. It is located on the banks of the Whanganui and Retaruke Rivers and is surrounded by Whanganui National Park. Blue Duck Station is one of the stops on the North Island Stray Trip.

Since this cute lamb is our picture of the week, I thought it would be appropriate to share some facts about the sheep, an iconic New Zealand animal. As you all know, there are a lot of sheep in New Zealand- approximately seven sheep for every one human! This number has decreased over time. In 1982 there were 70.3 million sheep living in New Zealand, and only 3.18 million people! That’s 25 sheep for every one human. If you’re interested in sheep, why not make a trip to Sheep World Farm and Nature Park, New Zealand’s Sheep and Wool Centre. Sheep World is just 40 minutes north of Auckland’s Harbor Bridge and is home to many attractions including an NZ farmyard, eco-discovery trail, adventure terrain and picnic area and wonderful wool multimedia experience.

Picture of the Week.

Hi everyone, it’s the return of the Picture of the Week with a photo that illustrates a fundamental rule with the sheeps here in New Zealand, you can notice too that they say nothing about the cow just above…

The picture has been taken on Waiheke island just before I assisted in a sheep shearing which was awesome.

Don’t hesitate to send us your pictures, either they are beautiful, funny, strange or whatever you find cool and the chosen one will be offered a beer or a glass of wine at the next Pub Night !
