stallion establishes goat association centre

Goat Association establishes a Stallion Centre.....
#1
This is in the "you couldn't make it up" category!  Apparently the Fuerteventura Goat Breeders Association has been awarded €100,000 by the Cabildo to subsidise the startup of the Macho Majorera Breeding Centre.  The award recognises "the significant role that the livestock sector plays in the island's economy, which supports the production of the renowned Majorero cheese in the high dairy productivity of this breed.'

Talking of GREENER having had a couple of days traveling in the north /NW of island, including Tindaya T en P, I have to say that after last weeks rain I have never seen so much greenery and I even  think i saw grass growing Smile Smile

We noticed that when we were over last December/January, everywhere seemed to have a bit of a green haze on the surface. Shows that the seeds/plants stay viable but dormant during the dry until they get a bit of wet & then off they go  Smile

The wild flowers are something else as well. They will start blooming very soon - they know that out here they have to grow, bloom and set seed very quickly before it all dries up again! My favourite is Echium Bonnettii (pic courtesy of internet as I can't find my album):

   

For a small fee I will provide the GPS co-ord when it starts blooming! Big Grin

I think we need a new thread for 'After the rain' - anyone like to start it off?
