So this is how our meat supplies arrive on the farm, in an esky, ready to be bagged up and frozen. This delivery was a little smaller than usual, but you get the picture.

We have mobs of sheep called ewes, wethers, hoggets, lambs and then there are the 'killers'.

It's pretty straight forward people, we kill 'em and eat 'em.

Sunset Beauty - telling the tale of a hot day to come

It's been quite a hot summer in many parts of Southern Australia and we are no exception. This sunset told of the hot day to come, it got to about 48 degrees after this one.

We've had a few 47/48's this summer, several 45/46's and more days over 40 than we've had in years.

Quad Bike Crazy

Farm girl pretty in pink on the new quad bike at Christmas time

Farm boy very excited about the bike

Being the safety conscious fuddy duddy that I am, we have RULES that go with the bike! Only laps on a certain circuit, the speed has been significantly 'dialled' back on this bike, helmet, gloves, decent shoes and adult supervision is compulsory and we have hand signals for communication when they can't hear me! I'm also considering a crush protection device, but I'm not sure about them yet, we'll see.

So the kids got a quad and grandpa got a ride on mower.
