My job was to get the steers in. You would think it would be easy enough! We just wanted to put them in a different paddock and draft out a couple of escapee’s . No prob’s! The steers had other ideas! They were feeling pretty good. Fresh and happy. They took off as fast as…Details
Among all the excitement of Red Dust hitting the shelves, our ewes have started lambing! This little bloke is one of many. Lambing is great fun to watch. Once they get a bit older they run, jump, pigroot and play around like nothing. Absolutely gorgeous to watch. But the other great thing about lambing (and…Details
