The Running Of The Ducks

Just another workday at a winery in South Africa.

The winery? …Vergenoegd Lȍw Wine Estate.

The Workforce? … Pest Control and Fertilization at the same time …


They are well treated and when their ready to retire they are moved to an island on the property where they live their lives out in peace.

A bit more info from the Atlas Obscura article that arrived in my email in-box this morning… and the winery website.

… and another video … because we all need more Indian Runner Ducks in our lives today…



May these times pass us by unscathed, but if by chance we are scathed, may we live to tell the tale, because such tales as these need to be told.

    I have been scathed so often, I probably wouldn’t notice if it happens again and just carry on like nothing happened. Works for me!

    ‘All ducks go to bed!’ Even my dog isn’t as well behaved. 😀 Thanks for this. Much needed antidote to the madness. Stay well.
