The end of Ag week..............

Why I don't want to be a farmer...........
when Mr Chooky is away everything happens...........
A quick check of the dam yesterday morning revealed this bogged sheep........
See how far that sheep got into the dam......
I drove over to the bore and the cows that buggered the water trough............
And emptied the whole tank.........I could not fix it but I could stop the water running out.........
Drove back to the house and grabbed Boy Wonder (who is out of action at the moment) I could picture myself slipping head over heals in the dam and I took him to drive me back to the house muddy...........
It was cool and wet and slimmy and I nearly fell a few times but managed to stay on my feet......I did manage to drag the sheep out........when wet they are so heavy and they get stuck into the mud too..........it is not easy at all.........
getting out of the dam was interesting..........my feet kept sliding back down.............But i made it out and got a lift home on the back of the ute.........hosed off on the lawn........
Running late for work with all these problems I was rewarded with pretty wispy skies...........even better in real life............
That's enough from me for Ag Day/week.........
Hope you enjoyed the posts and you thought about your connections to agriculture.............
Back to sewing posts soon hopefully......I have heaps to share.........
Catch you later.....

  10. I had to help Dad pull a couple of sheep out of the dam last year....Dad waded out in the mud and put a rope around him, and hooked him up to the ute, but I was so scared we would pull the sheep in half! Well done you, this is a super heavy job made worse by not being steady on your feet or up to your thighs in the mud! Hope it rains soon!

  11. Seems everything that can happen does happen when the boss is away! I know that feeling all too well.
