It has been a few days since Claude found them after they had been stolen.
read about it here..
They stayed in the mountains with a friendly farmer for a few days to recover after their gruelling and tiring journey through bush and fields with the thieves.
Fiji is a beautiful mountainous country with lots of sugarcane farms and forests.
Besides sugarcane, which is the main crop, there are large pineapple farms, cash crops and chicken farms in the area.
Mangoes were not fruiting well this year, unlike last year, but the trees gave as splendid a display as ever.
Annual rainfall is between 2500 - 6000mm per year, the rivers are full and the vegetation is lush and green.
It is pineapple time!

The sugarcane tracks meander through villages and houses. Ronelle found the tracks a safer option and less stressful to follow.
Our route home leads Claude through the beautiful Vitogo Parade, one of the palm lined avenues of Lautoka City.
Strutting right through town with the horses.
Another beautiful street in Lautoka.
Finally HOME !!!!!!
Bosse and Maria, the kids, the dogs....all were happy and welcomed the horses home.
I must clarify - home for now is where they have been living for 4 years...at our work place Worx Fiji Limited. When the farm is cleared sufficiently and water has been layed on, they will be relocated to their proper home - Naciriyawa Farm.
Hopefully pretty soon.
