63 READERS' PHOTOS DOG TIRED! Anna Reeves of Lankeys Creek in the southern Riverina of NSW sent in this photo of her brother Tony and his dog Billie during smoko when shearing in southern WA. The photo was taken by Joseph Dennis who was on the shearing team. FARM BOOT FOOT RACE The Farm Boot Foot Race at Darkan Sheepfest in WA in February was won by local young farmer Dan South ahead of Dan Chia who have been running rivals since Darkan Primary School days, but they have never raced in farm boots before! SUPREME CHOICE HORSEWEAR Deb Cooper, who lives with her husband Tim on a small sheep property at Holbrook in southern NSW, runs a home business making quality bespoke horse products, specialising in wool rugs and horse sheepskin boots. The business has been running for 13 years and is going from strength to strength. Tim runs a shearing team, so wool is something about which they are both very passionate. Check out Supreme Choice Horsewear on Facebook to see Deb’s great work. HELPING DAD COUNT SHEEP Glenn Simcock sent in this photo of young Harry Simcock joining in when his dad Clayton was counting out a mob of sheep from the yards on ‘Wendouree Downs’ at Kojonup in WA. Glenn said Clayton did well to not lose count. EARLY MORNING YARD WORK Early birds, worms and plenty of sheep. Lexi Cesnik (lexicesnik) posted on Instagram this photo of an early start for the team at the MerinoLink Merino Lifetime Productivity site, setting up the pens for the field day at Temora in NSW. ARIAH PARK HERITAGE WOOL BRAND DISPLAY Tricia Stubbs from the Riverina of NSW forwarded this photo of the Ariah Park community’s effort to put a Heritage Wool Brand Display in their local park. The display shows the wool brands for Ariah Park & Districts both past and present, and each brand has been labelled with the name of the owner. THE ONLY WAY TO LAND Young Beau Gemmell of ‘Radstock’ at Strathalbyn in South Australia said: “I was flying down the fleeces in the woolshed, and what a great soft woolly landing. Good Aussie Merino wool!” A PERFECT TECHNIQUE Don Aroney sent in this photo of Lester Jones’ perfect technique captured at shearing time at ‘Letona’, Yass, NSW.
