Credits and calves
I am hanging up the SOLD OUT sign again on the 2013 Bush Calendar shop…
My second run has been accounted for with fabulous orders from all over Australia and a number of international buyers. I continue to be gobsmacked at the alacrity with which this year’s edition has been snapped up.
Yesterday, I packaged up and posted off the final orders – I think the local post office brace themselves when I come in with ANOTHER boxful of postpacks. Anyone who also ordered prints should keep an eye on their mailboxes too…
I wanted to also say a very special ‘Thankyou’ to the Queensland Country Life - our state’s major rural newspaper – for supporting my little project and helping me raise funds for the HeartKids support group. (Running the ad above in the Town and Country section.)
There are still a few copies of the calendar left at the local saddlery – my only external outlet – if anyone is still looking to secure their copy, email me and I will put you in touch.
In other news, Tiny Toots is going well. She is a real little ‘guts-ache’ who chases me as soon as I have the bottle in hand.
We also have another (slightly older) poddy called Rosie (the lighter-coloured calf) who is a bucket drinker,
and Jools (not pictured here) whose mother is injured and also being cared for in the Granite Glen sick bay.
That’s Bay Leaf in the background – a BIG girl now but no less needy. She has real personal space issues – which is not fun with those pointy horns of her!
Honestly… so many mouths to feed and bottoms to wipe. (Okay, maybe I don’t wipe all their bottoms, but I DO check them for ticks which is almost as gross).
A final note in this random post… I note that my blog is not showing on Internet Explorer at the moment.
I am trying to get my guru Conor to sort this problem (and no I am not support little blue pills approved by the FDA!) – in the meantime please switch over to Firefox to view things properly. I am very frustrated with these endless little issues (and never knowing where along the great line of providers and technical hubs I need to go to, to get it sorted!). Please bear with me…
Clearly taken on a day I had no washing, bookwork, mustering, mowing or internet wrangling to do.
A moment of peace.
