I have just lost a couple of sizes :cheers: and now have a lot of clothes that hang off me. I am still wearing them, and kind of enjoying the fact they are baggy now but there are some that are just not much chop, and are becoming ridiculously hippy. I will restock from an opshop and just deliver wh...

Where abouts in England is Woo Poo, Andy? Got me buggered. We have a Woo Coo. All the local streets and suburbs in our little Shire are all British. It was the British that settled/developed our countries... so i guess they named them after their homelands, farms etc. If it's not Aboriginal, then it...

mmm. And they wonder why we don't go there! Their ad campaign has started on our TV's up here... what a joke. They'd be much better directing their advertising dollar into some sort of personality development program on their own shores.

Well, at least we can sing...

Your blokes spend twenty minutes before everything they do, doing Huckies and trying to find a bit of spit.

I just halved my crew last weekend, and sent the Toggenburg and Saanans packing. I am just back to my boer herd of 6 now. They were my original crew, but I took the others on when folks had trouble housing or feeding them. My girls have all bred late, but are beginning to show now. A new family has ...

Do you plan on hand shearing Red, or do you have a mate that you can run them through with his/hers?

What's you plans for them, then? Meat? Mowers? Spinning? If you need to tame them down, a small yard might help for a bit.

Congrats!

Funny T'shirts

Have spent today putting transfers on t-shirts for the kids and found some of their sayings pretty funny. Thought I would post some and folks might want to add their favourites too. Some of these had me flat out laughing... 1) When God made me he was just showing off! 2) You can Cheer, but you can't...

Good score on the machine, maggie. Glad you had a good day. I spent mine moving goats around and hiding from the heat and making, (or rather applying transfers) to T'shirts. Quite a good feeling looking over at them all hanging on the fish tank. Daughter 2 made a cake... but it has already gone! ......

If I am clearing a particular area, like the dam inlet, I will tether them in it. When they are just grazing, I just tether the lead goats and buck, and the rest don't roam far from them then.

Will pull the pics out after a couple of days, So the page goes back to normal chatting size.
