Cricket fans

We couldn’t resist snapping this one…


Schnuffles is one very sick boy, we thought we’d lost him at the weekend when a visitor told us we had a dead cria in the paddock. But he’s a fighter and, while he’s far from healthy, he’s hanging on in there and seems to be enjoying a few days inside in the warm.

Gandhi, of course is the perfect pooch and has taken well to his new role as babysitter.

They both seem to love sport and children’s shows on the TV.

I’ve often wondered why so many farmers have missing fingers…



It wasn’t until after I’d finished the job that I started to think about how, maybe, this could have been done in a safer way…

Some figures from Safework Australia:

27 accidents per year for each 1000 agricultural workers – multiply that up and, according to Safework, there are more than a dozen reportable work accidents in the sector per day

It’s a dangerous business we’re in.
