Beyond the Bale : March 2014
Readers' photos! 51 HAVE YOU GOT ANY INTERESTING PHOTOS THAT YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH OTHER READERS OF BEYOND THE BALE? ANOTHER GENERATION IN WOOL David Joyce sent in this photo of his son Phoenix pictured amongst the most recent clip. Phoenix is the grandson of William 'Joe' Joyce of Winton, Victoria who, at the age of 80 years, is still running his property and growing Merino wool, as he has done his entire working life, on the same property originally settled by his Irish immigrant grandparents back in the 1850s. CRUTCHING AT BOYAGARRING Christine Schilling of Beverley WA sent in this photo of her 11 year old son Daniel crutching a mob of 50 orange/green tag ewes. They weighed a good 50kgs and he dragged and crutched one sheep to about every four or five of his Dad's. Daniel slept very well that night and then got off the schoolbus the next day and did some more! GOING STRONG AT 87 Gaynor Marchant of Karoonda, South Australia, sent in this photo of her father-in-law Russell Marchant from Wynarka. He has shorn all his life. He is 87 and still picks up a hand piece. Do you know anyone with more years' experience? PRACTICING SHEARING ON TEDDY! Spike and Kirsty Wall of 'St Hilary', Bukkulla, north of Inverell NSW sent in a video of their children Charlie, George, and twins Ben and Alice doing a unique outdoor shearing show for their visiting relatives from Sydney! Pictured in this screenshot from the video are Alice, Charlie and George -- with plenty of freshly "shorn" teddies! 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. March 2014 BEYOND THE BALE
