Grocery shelves...........

Filling the feeder for the sheep...........when you get to the paddock you open the shoot at the back and let it run out in a trail..........
Oh and apparently we are in "drought now".........even thought we don't have droughts any more........freaking government........
If you want to make a donation to an organisation that helps farmers go visit "Drought Angels" they were set up in Qld for the farmers up there but given the "dry times" we have in NSW they have done a trip down here........they are on the darkside too..........the links are on the website........
the hay stack is dwindling fast...........need to get more......this came from the border area...........a lovely blog friend still had some.........
Not sure where the next load  will come from......Victoria or South Australia.........they are talking Western Australia even.........OMG the freight is horrendous.........the hay cost is going up too.......
The pile in the middle is cotton seed.........thankfully the cotton farmers had a good season even if no one else did that has created a feed source....at least it is only a few hours away............but it needs to be fed with other fodder types..............
Snapped this pic yesterday morning.........see the red back spiders........guess Mr Chooky has Redback boots........even when its crap you can still find cool things...........
Catch you later......

  5. They tell us be "drought prepared" - where do you begin. Hoping for very widespread good rain very soon.

  6. Great post. You all do it hard and hopefully if people like yourself continue to bring the situation to people's attention it may help. So typical that people and voluntary organisations always seem to come to the aid of others while the Gvt looks the other way. I hope things improve for you all very soon.
