Ponds no 2/4

The videos below show the last of my four ponds, as I said pond four holds 24 blackfish that were bred here on the farm , they are three years old this Christmas and I am hoping they will breed, if they do it will prove that these fish can breed at this age ,that is important knowledge for the future of these fish, next we can work on how to tell the sexes apart.









It finally died

My little Deadong 30 hp tractor finally gave up the ghost after working so hard during the fires, she scraped, lifted, dragged, pushed and she must have breathed in smoke ash and pine cones along with a fair amount of dust, after she dug trenches for new pipes slashed grass picked up rocks so it’s of to the doctors to try to put her back together .

The fire burnt right over the tractor melting the floor mat and the side of the gear lever and it could have upset the electronics as well , a tree branch flung back and smashed the lights and put a dent in the side , so she is well and truly deserves a good going over even the wheel hubs look like they got burnt.
