Well, today we were preparing for the coming Winter. The clocks were turned back one hour last night for the end of daylight saving.
Yesterday we started clearing away all the fallen trees from the roadside boundary fence - 27 fell down this year, what with drought and hot temperatures from the ongoing drought it was a shocker of a year. So, it's out with the chainsaw.
These old trees landed on our front entrance fence this year.
We had an afternoon tea out in the paddock with Zak and Benson- dog, and the cows. On the way back to the house we spotted our first new calf for the Autumn calving season. We haven't gone up to see if it's male or female yet, as we like to let the cow and calf alone for a few days before photo sessions begin. ;)
Looks like it might have been born Friday night - explains why Zak-dog started barking from two 'til five am keeping us awake for most of the night. We were cursing the dog but didn't realise he might have actually been trying to tell us something. Dumb humans...
Photos will be up of the new calf soon.
A place to find resources, discuss and learn about beef cattle farming and all its nuances. Okay, a place to joke around about farming, I guess.
