These almost pre-historic animals

are certainly not in the

emergent category.In fact they are in just the opposite category

in that numbers are declining significantly

each with close to 1,000 being

poached each year.


Between 2013 and 2018 (inclusive) Africa lost

(according to Google) 6,979

of these magnificent animals

to poachers (click link for details),

which is why there are now sanctuaries

guarded 24/7 by military sharpshooters.

A lock down treat for us…

…was our first ever home delivered meal,

for our wedding anniversary.

When on the farm we were 50 km from

any delivery service, so no home delivered meals.

When we moved we were so close to eateries

we never thought of home delivery.

So, definitely a new and different

experience for us.

Standard material for cladding a…

…woolshed is corrugated iron,

which makes them

a sauna in January and

a freezer in August.    

Older sheds sometimes had remnants

of weathered board cladding,

however, most weatherboard cladding

has been replaced with corrugated iron.
