around the farm

this is Noddy. our 11 week old kelpie. his parents are both purebred working dogs and he comes from a sheep station just off the snowy mountains highway, wagga side. he's naughty and he has big ears and sharp teeth. He's nearly 4 months old now and we've had to separate him from Jack. Jack will not stop teasing him and wrestling him and Noddy will not stop nipping him on the cheek. I'm at my wits end. So we've separated them to save an accident. He's a brilliant dog but 4 year olds and dogs don't mix.

This is the haybaling that took place this year. 87 bales = a very good year. That will keep our cows in feed for 2 or 3 winters.



I have found a cord for my camera and now I can show you where we live. Very beautiful place I think! The first photo is our driveway - .8km long and has two peaks, the second of which is where our house is perched. The house you can see in the middle of the photo belongs to John's parents and is where he grew up. The second photo is the view out east from our verandah, overlooking the valley.
