Went to the Statford Saleyard this morning. I'm reliably informed that the Stratford Saleyard is one of the largest in the Taranaki region and regularly puts through around 1,500 to 2,000 animals a day.
In the afternoon, we took a quick trip to Lake Mangamahoe which affords great oppurtunities for pic-nicing if you are so inclined anda great view of Mount Egmont, which you can see on the horizon of the picture on the right.
