So Farmer Bob and I went for a walk the other day to inspect how the dams were faring midsummer.
For the most part they are faring really well. The winter’s rain filled them to overflowing, which was a relief. While walking I wanted to get a closer look at the kangaroo prints in the mud at that water’s edge. It looked just like dirt hardened by the sun… until I took a step and was swallowed up to mid shin by soft, silty mud. It happened so fast that all I could do was laugh at myself…. and call for Farmer Bob to help haul my backside out of the mud. He laughed.
I can report that the kangaroo are very well hydrated though.
