Pippa lives in Katherine about 3 hours drive south of Darwin.
Katherine doesn't really have summer and winter. They have the wet season and the dry season. During the Wet the grass is lush but in the Dry the horses are hand fed each day. Mel and Steve breed all sorts of other animals as well so Pippa gets to live in her very own zoo
She has horses to ride
Beautiful native birds like these Major Mitchells
She has lots and lots of dogs to play with.
When the goats were younger Pippa could play with them.
Ducks - yes they are real ducklings having a swim in the wading pool with Pippa
They got to have a swim by themselves as well
Guinea pigs - the babies love to curl up and sleep in the food dish
Guinea fowl just wander around where they feel like wandering
So do the chickens
The turkeys have their own pen.
Grandad bought her a playhouse and Pippa helped him put it together. Hope she gets time to play in it with all those animals to look after.
