Beyond the Bale : June 2018
BELLA ARABELLA Both of Arabella Hawkins’s parents have featured in Beyond the Bale before, now it’s her turn! Arabella’s parents are Geelong AFL star and Fibre of Football ambassador Tom Hawkins (@tomhawkins_) and granddaughter of legendary Boonoke studmaster Basil Clapham Emma Hawkins (@emmahawkins_). SMOKO TIME! Michael Dreckow was crutching in the paddock on a crutching trailer out at ‘Nikalapko Station’ in the Riverland of South Australia when, instead of jumping off the side of the trailer, this ewe decided to jump in the wool pack where the wool from crutching was being placed. “After standing in there for a minute, she decided to get comfortable but unfortunately for her, she had to be removed.” TAHLIA IN THE SHED Caroline Hermes from ‘Deakin’ at Bethungra near Cootamundra, NSW, sent in this image of Tahlia Delaney: “What can’t this girl do? Not only is she an energetic and efficient roustabout, she is also studying for her Woolclassers’ Certificate at night in Temora, and recently we discovered she can shear as well!” BIRD’S EYE VIEW Fiona Tiller of Balaklava in South Australia sent in this photo of Patty, Timmy and Aurthor during the January shearing run at Mike Tiller's shed. HANDCRAFTED BALE HOOKS Tim Watts of ‘Mederberrin’ at West Pingelly in WA sent in this photo of a bale hook handcrafted by his brother Chris in his forge. It is made to an original pattern and specification popular in his region for decades. Being made from car coil springs, they provide a reliable hook into the bale. The handle is made from local hardwood timbers from their farm including wandoo (white gum). Contact Chris on 0427 331 317 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in purchasing one – they are proving to be popular as a display item as well as a functional tool. 71 READERS' PHOTOS
