    Is this what a big mob if goats does to the bush? Cos there wasn't anything really edible around and you could see for ages.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    Only months old stuff. There was at least 60 goats on the Paddocks. Big ones too cos you could see them clear as day at 200 metres. They live in the bush and feed on the Paddocks all day without ever getting shot at.

    Probably ate all the understory out over winter, when there was less paddock grass.

    I've been told from time to time that I should have a pet.

    I do. His name's Angus, my pet Magpie.

    He's very laid back, doesn't attack other birds, hasn't found himself a mate (I worry) and can't be arsed building a nest.

    He's also very quiet, low on curiosity and motivation, and currently doesn't seem to have much of an appetite.

    Also lacks personality, frankly. Not affectionate at all. I have to say I'm a bit disappointed, I expected more.

    I worry that he might be in a coma of some sort, but if he is, I'm impressed that he managed it while standing up straight.

    I'll give him a week to sort himself out. If that fails, I'll connect him to the 12v car jumpstart pack in the garage, and give it a whirl.

    If no joy, then off to the vet for a diagnosis.

    Unusual for an aussie to be so quiet.

    No need for a vet Max, I can see the problem from here. The plastic surgeon went a bit far and someone has stolen his legs and jammed a dowel up his arse.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I'm holding out hope that when I strap the jumper cables on him, he'll perk up .....without melting.
    If there's smoke whistling out of his jaxie, then I guess I went too far.
