My dogs are all going well with a few new members. Karma has just been mated to Keeper and hopefully I will mate Wakanda to Keeper later this year. I have another sire on order which I am very keen on..More on him when he is born. I am still chasing better genetics every chance I can get. My young ones are coming along with Angel's first and only pup, Saffron doing very well. She is a bold pup with plenty of personality, she works well for a youngster and will start proper training next month.
Family are all well, my daughter Becky her husband John and the kids came to longreach for our annual Cystic Fibrosis walk. My little grandson has CF and off we went in support of a cure. We walked 11klm and loved the whole day. The girls aged 7 and 5 ride their bikes all the way. Shane made a surprise visit home for a week and was lovely to catch up. Him and Lou are doing really well and have some fantastic plans for the future. Kate is nearly ready to leave for University but before she goes she want us all to go to Thailand, well you never know.
Finally rain has come, it broke in the winter which is odd for up here but we have had some pretty handy rain. We are still destocked but our paddocks are green, mostly weed and herbage but that is fine, it is green. All signs are good for this years wet and just maybe I will get that holiday and just maybe our sheep will come home. I guess I will end this post feeling very hopeful for the coming year.
