She also has blue and black australorps and double laced barnevelder. Anyone care to guess what I have?
and this I just wanted to share because its insanely huge! The two eggs in the pic are from the same chook. One was yesterday and the massive one is todays.
Loving all the pics and stories. I don't get on the computer much and typing on my phone is appalling sometimes but I am starting to follow the stories and it gives me something great to read when im stuck on the couch feeding bub.
Double yolker i guess? :-D yep gotta have a good read for feeding time
Thanks i was going to ask what thread u were all talking about too haha

I had no idea who won the cup until after I finished work when I heard a replay on ABC Radio … satay
I heard Big Orange was out the front there for a short while
I got a good chuckle from Michelle’s speech and agree that it is a wonderful story.
However, this morning I came across a very disturbing video on Facebook posted by a friend. I will not share because it is quite graphic and involves the killing of horses but basically while the successful racers are treated like Kings, the not so successful ones in the video are sent off to the knackers destroyed in a way that can only be described as disgusting animal cruelty.
I know nothing about keeping horses, racing horses etcbut would this be the norm? From what I understand and reading Fancy’s
posts, ex race horses are given the opportunity to go out to new homes?
Surely those stables that treat their horses like Kings and spend so much time, money and love on them would not be sending the unwanted ones off to such demise?
I understand, like chickens, there is a need to cull but in such circumstances and such beautiful horses?
I agreed with (AB?) That many horses in one race in my opinion is where the trouble starts.
I do not personally know about how all that goes teila but so many old hacks are ex race horses. My one horse i have owned was an ex race horse (not melbourne cup degree tho!) And after 6 months of having him he passed away from a heart murmur from too many drugs :-(
Horse treatment ranges ridiculously depending on the owners/trainers. So nice to hear of the good end with fancy :-) yes ud think spending as much time and money as u do on a cup horse and them still being some of the best that theyd keep them and race in smaller races..
As I said I dont know personally about horses the adoption rate im sure would be far greater than greyhounds but that does happen with the dogs all the timw. Theyre not often rehomed so are left with only one option :-( tis very sad.
Well somehow clumsy me managed to twist my ankle in the 1 out of 2000 ditches i didnt see on my jog last night! So as i twisted it and i come down on my other foot i must have shifted some gravel which scared the crop out of my dog and he took off. Weighs almost as much as i do so i hit the ground and he dragged me through the gravel on impact.
So big graze with some hard swelling on my left leg (hurts like hell), took a huge chunk of skin off my finger tips and twisted my right foot.. dont think ill be playing netball tomorrow :-( dunno how i managed to make such a big deal out of some uneven ground.. lol
