Beyond the Bale : March 2018
DOGS’ DOWN-TIME Lisa Ralston of ‘Round Plain’ at Rand in the Riverina District of NSW sent in this photo of their four Kelpies on their smoko outside the shearing shed outhouse, waiting for their call to pen up sheep. Pictured are Digger and Casey with their sons Brax and Dozer – it’s always a family affair at the shed at shearing time. “SAY CHEESE, CHEDDAR” Ella Mazoudier sent in this photo of her two-year- old red and tan Kelpie, Cheddar, who had a great time exploring the gorgeous woolshed of family friends of Ella’s partner, at Kingstown on the Northern Tablelands of NSW. Ella says the shed is a beautiful structure that has pulley systems for gates that lift up and runners where the gates slide back and forth, instead of the more common hinged gates. Although it is only a seven-stand shed, it is capable of housing 1,000 sheep with extensive yards all made from timber. TOP DOG Heather Briscoe of Emu Ridge Farm near Peebinga in south-east South Australia sent in this photo of their Jack Russell Tek a who loves working the sheep, either in the yards or out in the paddocks, and works longer and harder than the two Kelpie sheep dogs.
