Beyond the Bale : March 2017
CUTTING A SWATHE TO THE SHED Jeff and Jane Rogers of ‘Colly Plains North’ at Quirindi on the North West Slopes of NSW sent in this photo of a mob of Merinos coming in for shearing in mid-October. Luckily there was a good leader which picked her way through the abundant growth in more or less the right direction. PEEKABOO! Wendy Sheehan of ‘Trinidad’ at Quilpie in Queensland sent in this photo of her little boy at shearing time. MOVING SHEEP Jordan Hill of 'Lynstan' at Morawa in the Mid West region of WA sent in this photo of mustering sheep. POSSUM MAGIC Russell Cunningham of Tasmania sent in this photo of a possum in Russell’s sheep feeder. Russell had gone to fill his feeder with grain and was greeted with the possum that had squeezed in where there is a small dent and was unable to get out because of a full belly. BLAST OFF! Sheep classer Bill Walker of Murray Bridge in South Australia sent in this photo (taken by Jonesy) of him and Lone Gum principal Stuart Everett holding on to the top priced ($4,000) Lone Gum poll at the stud’s 2016 on-property sale at Crystal Brook. The ram was making a last-ditch effort to escape prior to loading! NETALLIE SEASON Sheep classer Bill Walker of Murray Bridge in South Australia sent in this photo he took of the Netallie Station woolshed near Wilcannia in north west NSW after an overnight thunderstorm dropped an inch of rain.
