Well I’ve had felfies ( a photo taken of you, by you, on a farm) flying in from all over the world. Some of you have a curious interpretation of a felfie but that’s just added to the fun. So let’s stop mucking about and get into it ……..
Leading the charge is Jen from Maffra in Victoria. Please note the black spots on the cow are actually black spots. The black spot attempting to enter Jen’s mouth is one of many flies.
Next up is Jen’s sister, Ruth, who is using some low stress stock handling techniques on a mob of agisted dairy cows. Jen, Ruth and Ruth’s husband, David, work together and you can read about their farm here.
Now we move up to Moree in NSW where Martin works on a cotton farm. A nice interpretation of the felfie, through the window of the work ute. Martin writes an entertaining blog on farming life. Check it out here.
And we had to have a Coolatai connection. Amy got all excited when we had an inch of rain two weeks ago. She was sick of carting water just for use at the house. Unfortunately I fear she may be back to carting water already.
Flying back to Yeoval in NSW we find Amy, from Lawson Communications, doing a spot of mustering with 5-month-old Jack and Baxter the house dog.
Still in NSW we have Nell from Wagga Wagga who was about to embark on her first cattle purchase. Way to go Nell! She complains that these lovely girls behind her would not smile for the camera.
Now the next lady didn’t quite grasp the felfie concept, but then she also brings her chooks into the air conditioning inside on hot days and makes special ice blocks for them, so we’re not going to complain – and I loved the photo. Kylie also doubles as my “agent” so if I’m busy and you need some top notch writing done, head over here.
Speaking of great photos – how about this one? This is Lizzie from Mandurama in NSW, with a very hungry poddy calf. Lizzie ended up covered in calf slobber just to be part of the Felfie Project – now that’s committed. Lizzie and husband, Grant, run a farm stay so you too can be covered in bovine slobber.
Back overseas now to the high deserts of Idaho in the USA, and here is Rachel on horseback. Rachel is the author of “25 things I want my ranch kids to know”. Haven’t read it? Well do yourself a favour and read it here. You’ll love it.
Another boy! Seems the girls like the felfies more but here we have Grahame from Orange in NSW, with his wife’s steer. Grahame is part of KLR Marketing – make a profit from your livestock.
Apparently this is a gelfie – a goat taking a felfie – or so we are lead to believe from Grant at Tenterfield in NSW. If you want to see whether Grant is good-lookin’ enough for a felfie, find him at G & S Bowhunting Safaris.
Finally we are back where we started with a felfie from the folks in Victoria. Here are Ruth and David doing what all farmers like to do at the end of the day: Have a beer and go for a swim!
