  1. The Claytons 52/2019

    Spicks and specks of colour are always good. Who had rain where it hasn't been seen for yonks? We just had a quick storm of 10 mil. Haven't had fires here, but the smell of wet ashes in the air from the smoke is amazing.
  2. Is my dog a dingo

    Something Foxie-cross cross Kelpie-cross. With legs. Reminds me of a dol dog from way back, what was Riley Riley Long Legs?? (Aside from black).

    Really hay from asparagus? Is that a thing - or is it another plant (like the "Asparagus Fern" that is a weed in the Dandenongs). Kangaroos here still have a limited pick of dry grass - but they just look over it, the heat has been exhausting them. This is the lamb I had to pull, first time I've had to, so amazed she survived. She is now about 4-5 months, fiercely independent of her mum and twin brother, and I think can escape any fence known to man-kind. So when a new bale was dropped off ($150: hay is eye-watering prices this year eh) she declares it hers and nobody elses'.

    Very sorry BJ. Rest in peace Jester and Nash.

    New Year's Day - the Highland Gather at Maryborough, Vic. Couldn't help thinking of Gillybob. "In the land of kilted men". (Where is @gillybob )??
  6. Best Cordless Clippers ??

    At the very other end of the spectrum, one Christmas gift was an Anko (Kmart) cordless pet clipper, they are $37, and have had a very good report from horse owners with an unexpected good result on coat trimming including a full body clip by some people. @sheena for the mostly 'rear-end only' use we are looking at, they might (or might not) be handy. Have not tried them on Rheneas yet.
  7. Tragedy at Zoo Krefeld on new year's eve

    I can live happily with that. Have said for years that they should be totally banned and have had their day - just like wild animal use in the circus. But it was relatively easy to legislate re the circus - smaller target, less public pressure in support. Fireworks are a big-money industry, ACT/Northern Territory all hand in glove with supply and dirty money, and more votes to be lost from the pro-fireworks masses - don't think it will happen, big money and votes talk.

    Just so sorry Stellnme, beautiful little boy, too young, so unfair.

    Yes - I'm grateful we don't have the big or aggressive ones - bears, honey badgers, leopards etc. Our area is free of dingoes and wild dogs so not too much to complain about.

    The blue wren reminds me of our little Dorper sheepie - Rose is always shouting at something or somebody. My poor chooks are under siege the last week or two, as if heat-stress isn't hard enough on them. The goanna stomped off empty-handed, the eagles catch a gosling or chicken occasionally, they are always on watch. And this bloody fox!!! It must live very close-by, tests every pen at night, I can get up at 3.00am and see it busily doing the rounds. And it makes a raid or two in broad daylight to see if any birds are out for their free range time. Having to keep them locked in more and more. Don't always know immediately if one is missing, have around 100 chooks n chicks between 14 odd smaller and larger pens, so don't do a headcount every day, then it is "hang on, where is the blue Silkie - oh".

    Lovely thanks Scottsmum, we need our George fix now and then.
  12. The Claytons 52/2019

    Tks - and yours are where? Coming. Okay, looking forward.
  13. Goodbye Dozer

    Sad news Taliecat, truly sorry to hear - but glad you were there for him when he needed you. I was wondering last week how you and yours were going - was buying hay for my lot at your old road.

    Another gem. And great series as always.
