Start of a new week.

Okay, so it’s not “really” TV, it’s a media thing which is a little K2C promo event being organised by DECC for use by Bush Heritage and the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative when promoting both K2C and the wider initiative which stretches from the Atherton Tablelands to the Alps (affectionately known as GER). So there you go – we’ll be kind of famous.

I don’t know what happened last week it all just went by so quickly. Yesterday we spent a fair bit of the day feeding green feed out to the pigs. I let out a small group to wander around the front paddocks whilst we worked. They were so happy I had to go muster them back up to the shelters for dinner. They quite like the front paddock; it has a lot of green pick and a mix of good thick rooted thistles that they can graze on.

The boys gave the two piglets in the house a bath on Sunday morning – first time I can remember piglets getting a bath. We moved a few pigs around in the yards, we have at least one that is going to farrow soon and needs to be in a clean and warm area.

The Cook had to chase the horses back from across the river last night. They had escaped and were grazing on the neighbours oats for a while. She’ll take any excuse to get a leg over!

There is another load of green feed to pick up tonight, that will keep them going for another few days, so I won’t get back home until after dark.
