I spent of my working life working with…

…sheep on our sheep farm.

A good sheep dog was invaluable and

a great companion on many long days

alone in the wool shed

or ploughing paddocks.

Cattle were also part of the family farm

until the 1983 drought.

It was decided that it was much easier

to keep sheep alive than it was to

feed cattle during drought conditions.


Even though I am not a ‘cat’ person,

cats were/are also an invaluable part

of any farm as hay stacks attract

both rodents and reptiles.

Cats helped limit rodents especially

and would not back away from snakes either.

More and more farms are being turned into

huge power generation sites over

the past decade or so.

One of the first signs of spring

being around the corner…

…is the arrival of bulbs flowering in the garden.

Another sign is the patchwork of

golden paddocks/fields of canola in bloom.

I would love to see the surrounding area

from the air at this moment.

a settled or regular tendency or practice,

especially one that is hard to give up

The first thing Taji  does

when let off for a run is…

…is to check Candi’s kennel for any morsels

which Candi may have left.

She also checks out

the area surrounding the kennel.

Just in case..
