Field-bin furtive feed failure

When it comes to getting oneself into an awkward or compromising position, there is little doubt sheep are the experts. Following on from last month’s post hole adventures and at the risk of depleting our “stock”-pile of ovine puns, we couldn’t go past this from Nick Abbott who farms in Wagin, Western Australia.

Sensing the smorgasbord of grain inside, this ewe surreptitiously climbed up into a field-bin for a high protein snack only to get stuck, wedged firmly in the hopper. 

Fortunately for this greedy girl, Nick found her shortly after, but not before she had munched through as much grain as she could reach from her perilous position.

Nick reports with some head-scratching debate and some pulling, then pushing, he eventually got her free, but not before grabbing this great photo of our woolly friend sprung in-situ. A voucher for a pair of boots is on its way from our friends at Blundstone for his efforts.

Got a fantastic farm photo? Don’t be sheepish! Send it in to us via Facebook, on MMS on 040 111 FARM (040 111 3276) or email us at contact@kondinin.com.au and you could win yourself a pair of Blundstone boots too.
