A day at the farm…
NB: new camera and an amateur who doesn’t read the instruction book – sorry if pics are ordinary!
Drafting ewes and lambs through the yards.
Jackeroos having to hold hats in wind.
Crutching the ewes (taking the mucky wool from their bums so they don’t get flystrike in the summer), husband waiting to go into pens to drench the ewes (so they don’t get worms). Blurred image…
Our newly trained rousabout, my son’s partner. She got down amongst it quite happily.
An older rousy, thinking ‘the shed is too damned hot and I’d rather be writing the next part of G3 or lying under the willows’.
All finished and done and lambs and ewes back together.
Love this pic – lambs in the lilac.
Looking through the barn up the hill. Barn dam with a case of red algae which we have to scrape off. Biiiiig job.
Old farmer, young farmer, old bull, young bull!
Old Dog waiting at the farmhouse gate for me.
My daughter’s very own Red Dog.
Young Dog and Red Dog at the backdoor.
The wind finally dropped and allowed us to have a quiet and restful BBQ at the end of the day to celebrate daughter’s birthday.
