Beyond the Bale : March 2017
OFF TO THE SHED Mary Anne Bunn of Braidwood in the Southern Tablelands of NSW sent in this photo of late lambs heading off to the shed for marking. FIRST SHEARING Karla Whittaker of Lockhart in the Riverina of NSW sent in this photo of the first day in the shearing shed for her three-week old daughter, Mia Hosie. WOOLLY WEDDING Chris and Carole Patterson of ‘Woolkabin’ at Woodanilling in the Great Southern region of WA sent in this photo of their woolshed decked out for the wedding of their daughter on 7 October. The wedding was held just two weeks after the on-property ram sale at which 200 individually penned rams were sold. After the sale, it was all hands on deck to strip out the pens, scrub the floor and build a new kitchen, so family and friends from all over Australia could experience the Pattersons’ favourite place. LOST SHEEP RETURNS TO FLOCK Rhonda Carnegie of Tambellup in WA sent in this photo of a lamb named Heidi who had hidden under the seat of the ute while ewes and lambs were being moved. After a bag of lamb starter milk, Heidi rejoined the flock. BUNINJON, ARARAT Alexander and Ann Sloane of ‘Savernake Station’ in the southern Riverina region of NSW sent in this photo of Ann’s uncle, Bert Coad, who at the great age of 93 is still actively involved in his family farm, ‘Buninjon’, near Ararat in south- west Victoria. Alexander says Bert’s instinctive knowledge of agriculture and interest in history is amazing. ‘Buninjon’ has been in the Coad family since 1865, and is now farmed by Bert’s son Chris and family. WOOLLY AT DENI Pam Wettenhall of Deniliquin in the Riverina of NSW sent in this photo of her granddaughter Emma playing amongst the wool bales during shearing time. RINGO A STAR! Sherri Symons of Ellerslie near Mortlake in the Western District of Victoria sent in this collection of photos of her kayaking out, with her dog Ringo, through floodwaters to rescue some of her sheep in September.
