New Zealand Livestock

I was surprised to see more cattle than sheep on my 1100 mile tour of the North Island in New Zealand.  We didn't get too close to much until we stopped at little Bed & Breakfast/Campsite at the head of a Thermal Hike just north of Taupo...  It was a little odd, but the owner offered to sell us the whole shebang for only $400K NZD...
Anyway, they had a sheep, which wouldn't let us get too close, a few Llamas, Peacocks and Chickens.  This little chicken looks like he was trapped in the 80s and acted very confused...

Keith was able to get one of the Llamas to get close, the others were too skittish, and the sheep preferred to eat the grass from the ground...
