Beyond the Bale : June 2014
Readers' photos! HAVE YOU GOT ANY INTERESTING PHOTOS THAT YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH OTHER READERS OF BEYOND THE BALE? SHEARING A CAMEL! SCAA Shearer Woolhandler Training Inc (Victoria) is helping provide shearer training to nomadic camel herders in Mongolia. Pictured here is shearer trainer Roger Mifsud doing a great job on a Bactrian (two-humped) camel. There is no doubt about the versatility of shearer trainers! CLIVE ON HIS PONY Coral Mitton of Grenfell, NSW sent in this photo of her brother Clive Anderson, a retired stock and station agent. Pictured here aged four years on his pet sheep "Mary" which was used as a pony, Clive is now 71 and very involved with harness racing after having been a bookmaker for many years. VET STUDENTS IN THE FIELD Chris Gardiner of the School of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences at James Cook University sent in this photo of its third-year veterinary students who visit the Longreach region for a "sheep week" each year. In this photo the students are being instructed on sheep field necropsy. PRACTICING HIS BOW FOR THE DUCHESS This picture captures Fred the celebrity ram with trainer Jim Murray secretly practicing his bow in the lead up to the royal visit to the Sheep and Fleece Pavilion at this year's Sydney Royal Easter Show. 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.
