Easter was a busy time for the extended family. The Law’s, Pont’s and Runga Families gathered at Goodwood for family time and a bit of work was also thrown in. Monty Ericson also joined the team for the weekend not only to share his advice on the planting of 80 trees around the section, but also to cast an experienced eye over the 2013 sale bulls along with Tom, Chris and Andrew.
Pippa and Hikawera Runga, 17th March 2013
Jayne was there to take more photos to add to the sale catalogue and Scott and Joy Clearwater were able to finalise the photoshoot. It was also an opportunity for Roger Keach to create the bull line up for auction day.
Not only were these jobs ticked off the list, but the weekend also saw the introduction of Pippa and Hikawera Runga, born on 17th March and home in time for all the chocolate! The two babies join Tieke and Lilykate to make the Runga family 6.
Whilst everyone is busy preparing for the 2nd Waimara Angus Bull Sale on 24th May, the families all stopped work and took the time to welcome a very special addition to the Pont family at Tumai.
Dusty Pont, 2nd July 2013
Dusty David Pont was born on 2nd March, 2012 and brings the Pont family to 4. Jake, now almost 2 is already following in Dad Chris’s footsteps and only wants to be outside so he is very happy with the arrival of playmate Dusty to join him in his farming endeavours. No doubt we will see these two boys get in the thick of it over years to come and add their personality to Tumai.
Kate an already busy mum and newborn in tow is still finding the time to play a part in the stud with wine ordering and marketing for the big day all under control. The family are all looking forward to a successful day in May and a chance to introduce their new man.
