Beyond the Bale : June 2015
READERSPHOTOS 55 Have you got any interesting photos that you’d like to share with other readers of Beyond the Bale? We are always keen to see and hear what people working with Australian wool are up to. If you want to share any photos with us, please email the image and a brief description to the editor of Beyond the Bale Richard Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. The photos could portray any feature, be it humourous or poignant, informative or provoking, gritty or beautiful. Here are a few photos that we have recently received from readers. BUDDING SHEARER Murray and Michelle Whiley of West Wyalong in NSW sent in a photo of their 9 year old daughter Holly, who wanted to have a go at shearing. Holly was so proud of herself she went in for another one. BUDDING WOOL HANDLERS Amanda Manifold of Camperdown in Victoria sent in this photo of her two young nieces Harriet (7) and Imogen (3) cleaning up for her after shearing a couple of pet lambs. Both sat watching patiently until Amanda was finished then got to work! PHOTOS! READERS’ WOOL RESOURCE KIT Debra of Yarraville in Victoria sent in this photo of her daughter Amelia (5) reading the Wool Resource Kit booklet to her brother Hugo (1).
