An easy day!

Checked the sheep in the morning,everything fine. Patrick and I moved the wethers back into the 100 acre house paddock and put some hay in the contour paddock.

I'm off to Wagga to pick up Susan and John soon (if they make their connection!)

Black dogs rule!!!


More rain!!!!! About 5mm overnight and this morning. Humphrey and I got wet while checking the sheep!

Moved the Coomas back to the ramp paddock and the large mob back into the 240 shed.

In the afternoon Patrick and I put in all the steels on the 180 and some of those in the Junee paddock.

Another good day. Things are falling into a pattern now. The Coomas went back into the Trifecta and all the large mob are now in the 180. There are lots of lambs and with the warmer weather there haven't been many losses. There are lots of twins!

On the fencing front the welder has given up the ghost so we lost some time trying to get it sparking. Eventually we decided to put out some steels and knock them in. We spent a long time on the long run in the 180 and should finish puting them out tomorrow.

Sunday and Monday

We had 1 mm of rain on Sunday!!

A quiet day on all fronts. There was no movement of sheep and Mick had the afternoon off after checking the sheep.

On Monday,

  • the wethers went into the Timber paddock

  • The small mob went back into the 180. They look very good with lots of lambs and are in good condition.

  • Patrick fed the Contour paddock as we are concerned with the number of lambs dying there.

  • The other mobs are looking good.

  • Mick laid out the steels in the 180 and with Patrick, stays on to two posts. The welder is playing up and we fear we may need new leads!!

  • A cool day but the wseather is much warmer than a few weeks ago (4 overnight).

Friday and Saturday

It rained on Thursday night - about 10mm. This farming's easy!! All it took was a Memorare in the 180 and a hail mary at each barb tie on!!!

The Coomas went into the Lucern on Friday and on into the 240Lucern today. The mob from the 240 shed are in the Barley and Wattle, the weathers are at Sheathers and the mob in the Junee paddocks are doing well. The contour mob are okay but have lost the most lambs, we'll feed them again on Monday. We have only lost about four more sheep this week.

Here's a photo of twin lambs (named Joe and Frank) who were separated briefly from their mother in the 240 Shed. We gave them a ride in the ute and Humphrey told them doggy tales to keep their spirits up!
