Beyond the Bale : December 2013
HAVE YOU GOT ANY INTERESTING PHOTOS THAT YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE WITH OTHER READERS OF BEYOND THE BALE? Readers’ photos! AFTER A LONG DAY... Dave and Amanda Adams of ’Barley Hill’, Dangarsleigh, NSW sent in this photo of their second eldest daughter Cate with their sixth daughter Ellen. The kids had just spent the hot day helping drench a few mobs and later in the day Cate and Ellen were found by their parents fast asleep inside in the shed. TAKE ME HOME Here is a photo from Margie Ward from Dumbleyung, WA that won a prize in the ’Pride in Saltland Management’ national photo competition that was run a few years back by AWI’s Land, Water & Wool program. SHOTGUN CARTRIDGES: A SIMPLE WAY TO KEEP THE DUST OUT Here’s a handy way we’ve been told about to keep dust and other impurities out the shearing handpiece ferrule when not in use. An empty shotgun cartridge is the perfect size to fit inside the ferrule. A cartridge also fits perfectly over the short tube. 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.
