Post your pictures of farm-animals
Visiting Brisbane in 2010, I asked my cousin, Gayle, to take me out to Mark Tully's rare chooks (chickens) and pigs, etc, farm at Helidon.
Blue Hills is handily situated in conjunction of two creeks -- a huge advantage in normal times but a total disadvantage when freak flash floods roared through the area, killing people and stock, and causing huge property damage from Toowoomba to Brisbane in 2011.
They wiped out Mark's farm (along with those of his neighbors) and swept away most of the animals. Check out the Blue Hills site. Fascinating stuff about the loss of critical populations of original domesticated breeds.
Sorry, I meant to reply to the thread, not to you individually. I don't like how you can't delete your own posts.
I love this shot! I love this pig (never thought I'd say that)! What a sweet animal!
This is very interesting, and I want to thank you for all the information and history. I really enjoyed reading your post.

Edit: seems ok now
The photos are visible before I post and in edit, but not in normal thread view. Sorry. Can't delete the post. If you click on the image, it does seem to open.
Any suggestions. Have done this before without problems.
What do you mean? Of course it is - as long as you ask the farmer.
it's soft, but oh well! (G1 with 14-45mm)
Thanks for starting the thread.
