Beyond the Bale : March 2013
HAVE YOU GOT ANY INTERESTING PHOTOS THAT YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH OTHER READERS OF BEYOND THE BALE? Readers' photos! "ORPHAN LAMB" Camray and Michelle Gethin from Hines Hill WA sent in this photo of an orphan lamb they named Shiver, which they brought home from the paddock on a wet wintery day. "OLD ERROWANBANG WOOLSHED" 'Old Errowanbang' woolshed celebrated its rich history by holding an open weekend in November. The woolshed was built in 1886 and is located at Carcoar, 60km west of Bathurst. The woolshed has been undergoing a restoration program over the past year by enthusiastic volunteers to ensure the woolshed's future. The weekend was attended by 6000 people to see history re-enacted with blade shearing demonstrations, historical tours and sheep dogs at work. In the foreground is Peter Artridge who is the only shearer to have represented Australia in both blade and machine shearing. "BRUCE'S FIRST DAY IN THE YARDS" Gordon McNeill from Dalwallinu WA, sent in this photo of his tri-colour short haired Border Collie Bruce having his very first day in the yards, back in September 2008. Bruce was only two months old at the time. Gordon says Bruce is now a great all-round working dog, good in both paddock and yards. "JOHN BUXTON: 50 YEARS OF SHEARING" Spike and Kirsty Wall from Bukkulla near Inverell, NSW sent in this photo of John Buxton who this year celebrates half a century of shearing. According to Spike and Kirsty, 63 year old John is a champion fellow, still a magnificent shearer and a supreme athlete. John intends to continue shearing for many years to come. A surprise party was held at the Graman Hotel in January for John with more than 100 in attendance. We are always keen to see and hear what people working with Australian wool are up to. If you want to share any photos with us, please email the image and a brief description to the editor of Beyond the Bale Richard Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. The photos could portray any feature, be it humourous or poignant, informative or provoking, gritty or beautiful. We can't promise that we'll print every photo, but we'd love to see them. Here are a few that we have recently received from readers.
