Beyond the Bale : December 2017
NATURE KNOWS BEST Lisette Mill of the Basalt to Bay Landcare Network on the south-west coast of Victoria (pictured) sent in this photo of a fallen nest, of probably a red wattlebird, that the bird has lined with wool. It appears the wattlebird naturally knows that wool makes the most comfortable and warm interior for its home. A GENTLE MUSTER HOME Suma Reid of Pingrup, 210 km north of Albany in Western Australia, sent in this photo of their replacement ewe hoggets (and little lamb!) photographed from the back of Suma’s faithful ex-racehorse, Crowne Pilot, who has taken to sheep mustering extremely well. Suma finds that, when time allows, mustering with a horse makes all the animals, and humans, calmer. BATMAN AND JOKER Kirsty Twigg from Pyramid Hill in Victoria sent in this photo of her two-year-old son Max, who after a morning of checking sheep with dad decided the two orphaned lambs they found were tired so he cuddled them to sleep. Now his pet lambs, the duo have been named Batman and Joker. Have you got any interesting photos that you’d like to share with other readers of Beyond the Bale?
