January is crutching time on our merino sheep husbandry timetable. That’s removing the wool from around their eyes (so they’re not ‘wool blind’), their bum (so the poo doesn’t cling, attracting blow flies) and for the guys, their pizzle (aka their old fella, also to stop blowfly strike). The crutching team work their way through our sheep once the fellas get them to the yards, and we take over again post haircut. The weather has been pleasantly cool thus far, a far cry from last summer! ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Liz, tell Gary, Tom and the boys to leave their gear out. My crew hopefully all up for this years races and most will need a touch up around the flue, eyes and almost certainly the pizzle by August! Love your stories about the rains, the cooler weather and the gentle river flow. Happy NY to you all and we all missed the races so badly this year!! Hope to see you in Aug. BC
My late Dad was a shearer for 40 yrs in outback NSW and QLD
A lot of loose pizzles hanging around there..!!
Glad I’m not a sheep 😱
I thought it was just bottoms! A big job.
You say it so nicely Lis...😆
Mmmmmmm. Pelora? Flash shed!
I did shearing in my early days.
Are you shearing tomorrow? I’m in Bourke I’ll spin out that way tomorrow
Nice shot Liz - could almost inspire Polly 😊
Do what it takes Liz- your flock are gold now🤣

The water is well and truly on its way downstream with a nice flow going past us now. ... See MoreSee Less
Looks beautiful to see all that water going down the river just great to see
You know it will come sooner or later Liz, but sooner is better.
Reduce the ridiculous amount taken further upstream and there'd be more going further downstream
But apparently it’s not going to reach Menindee!!!!
Great news 💦💦
Wonderful news. Maybe more to come hopefully.
Wonderful wonderful water!!
Awesome. Just what you need
Great to hear

The flow coming down the river at present has produced ideal conditions for the release of 100,000 Cod and Yellowbelly fingerlings, good news for anglers! ... See MoreSee Less

Wow- amazing job guys- my Dad was the founder of Restocking of Murray Cod in the Warrego River at Cunnamulla in the 90’s
Dust storms are the absolute pits, but isn’t this a stunning pic, taken today at Mt Gipps Station Stay - north of Broken Hill.#duststorm

Must be pretty dry somewhere.
I remember when l was three years old we lived at Roto NSW a dust storm came up & everything got darker, mum took me into the bedroom and pushed me under the bed, scared shit outta me, that’s probably why l still remember 82 years later.👍
We have high wind warnings here for the next couple of days!
Beautiful but not so good
Beautiful photo 💕
Gonna be 36 here 😝
Totally agree!! Hate them but gorgeous photo!
