Hello April....

Autumn seems to be seeping in very slowly… very cool mornings lead into very warm days.  Walking the side walk yesterday with the pups was certainly puff stuff (well ok, for some of us…) with the sun beating down it felt more like high summer!
 
  It was with hugely heavy hearts that we bid goodbye to Dozer, a   very special member of the Wyndford family.  Walk was the first word he learnt and he was happiest out on the mountain with guests…especially the ones who let him lead… the walk tended to be longer than they thought. The next thing he learnt was to use his beautiful big chocolate eyes to full advantage, especially at tea time!  He surprised us always with being able to tell a new guest checking in and was quick to meet them at the car, but seemed to know if you were already resident. Absolutely patient with small people, who frequently sat with him for cuddles on the steps outside the dining room. Ah… so many wonderful memories. Thank you Dozy… RIP. 


On his last day, a short amble round the lodges was all he could make, suddenly Sprocket walked slowly right alongside him, ears to tail touching for a few minutes - it seemed like the baton was being passed on.
Meanwhile our new lambs, Alice, Sparky, new twins Duke and Dash are doing well, as are Ebony and Ivory (well – they are black and white like piano keys…) our latest piglets!
We have some fun times planned for all ages this year.  Visit our activities page on the website www.wyndford.co.za  for more information but a sneak heads-up….. tennis weekend, spider and butterflies, scout treats, bowls week as well as all the usual fun and relaxing at Wyndford. Alternatively, you could treat the Mom’s in your lives to a special break, delicious meals with no cooking, lots of relaxing, fresh air… peace and quiet!  Go on just do it! Call the girls in the office – 058-2230274!
A guest recently commented… ‘cannot fault Wyndford, excellent meals and beautiful surroundings – the best kept secret in the Eastern Free State!’  Experiencing this soon will be our monthly draw winner  Shelley King!

 Looking forward to seeing you soon, warm regards from the Wyndford Team.

PS.... to all those photographers among you, the Eastern Free State is a treasure trove at this time of year, with cosmos, Autumn trees, Mountains... sunbirds in wild dagga plants...... pack up your lenses and zoom this way!

Farewell Dozer...

It is with hugely heavy hearts that we bid goodbye today to this very special member of the Wyndford family.  Walk was the first word he learnt and he was happiest out on the mountain with guests…especially the ones who let him lead… the walk tended to be longer than they thought. The next thing he learnt was to use his beautiful big chocolate eyes to full advantage, especially at tea time!  He surprised us always with being able to tell a new guest checking in and was quick to meet them at the car, but seemed to know if you were already resident. Absolutely patient with small people, who frequently sat with him for cuddles on the steps outside the dining room. Ah… so many wonderful memories. Thank you Dozy… RIP.

Latest news....

It’s just too soon…! Autumn… we’re not ready yet! But driving the roads in the Eastern Free State, the cosmos are showing themselves in pink and white splendor and the wild dagga plants in the garden are starting to pop orange blooms that the sunbirds just love. There are patches of yellow and orange leaves appearing on trees and creepers alike, with yesterday’s morning temperature at 6 degrees – (and you have to ask why I think mornings should begin at 10…).

Although, as far as the animals are concerned it would seem that Spring has sprung!  We have had an over abundance of bunnies born, two new lambs came bouncing along and for the first time in many years, we once again have ducks swimming in the pond… and not only visiting the pond.  They have explored the lounge, visited Belsteen Manor, frequented the pool area, encountered Molly and Sprockett – with only the loss of a few feathers – and today, after two trips round the gardens looking for them, they were still missing in action – next thing we know they will be joining the walks!

As the school holidays approach, a reminder to all of those who received special offers while visiting our stand at the Getaway show … free horse rides, a massage…. Use them before you lose them! Call the girls in the office now to make your booking. Also, our Spiderman is coming back in May… 19th – 21st when we explore and photograph butterflies, spiders, scorpions and bugs of all sorts! Kids (and adults) always have so much fun!
Taking Autumn walks shortly will be our monthly draw winner Neil Munro.  Congratulations, we look forward to welcoming you to Wyndford for your two night stay out of season.
