The other animals
When you enter the yard you are greeted warmly by our dogs. First of all our Swiss mountain dog Tahra. She is an enthusiastic and happy dog that keeps an eye on everything and monitors it all! Second, our Labrador/German Shepherd Musta, who is now 10 years old and the third and youngest of the pack lot is Pukkie, a Jack Russel. Pukkie is the dog of Marlies, but most of all a real and excellent mouse and rat catcher plus she enjoys rides on the tractor.
These are our Barnevelder chickens. They provide a fresh egg every morning. They also clean up the soil under the bushes all day.
Of course, there are cats with us on the farm. They ensure that we don’t have any inconvenience of mice. In winter, the cats can often be found in the stable and barn and once the harvest begins, they go hunting for mice. Each year we look forward to some nice young kittens from them. Please contact us if you are looking for a nice cat on the farm.
The sheep and goats
Here you can see the sheep. At the moment we have one ewe of the Texel breed and one Drenthe heath sheep. Every spring lambs are born. For us this is the real start of the spring.
Since Mariska always had goats, the pygmy goats shouldn’t be lacking on De Kandelaar. Also with the goats we expect young goats every winter, to play and jump around on the tubes in the meadow.
