Generation Pandemic: How has Covid-19 affected your children?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

This week we're looking at how the pandemic will affect our children and their resilience. The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print. Parents, if you're happy for your children to be photographed please let us know.

Grazing Wanted for 3 horses

Roxanne from Rangiora

Hello, my name is Roxanne, I am looking for grazing land for my 3 horses.
I am looking for a minimum of 5 acres for them. I have owned lifestyle properties for approximately 30 years, so I understand how to properly manage and maintain pasture and fencing etc.
Since selling my last lifestyle property 2 years ago I have been grazing my horses at one property here in Rangiora. However, this property has just been sold so I need to find a new location for them soon.

I live close by and check on my horses at least once a day and supplement feed them during winter and when required. They are very well taken care of with regular hoof care by a professional farrier, worming, dentistry, covering and general husbandry. I have never missed a payment in the 2 years that I have been grazing at this property.

I am a mature woman, very friendly, respectful and approachable. I love my horses and am looking for a nice situation in which they can spend their senior years.

If you can help or know somebody else in the area who has grazing land available, I would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your time.
