Idyllic?

I reckon that how we have our set up is pretty idyllic. We've worked hard to get things how they are and we think that we have pretty much got things how we want it.
Everyday we have the pleasure of walking through the orchards to feed our beautiful free range pigs, we know them all by name but you never know what might be around the corner. The barstewards !

dreadful.
i can only think of a few ways to reduce the problem

more dedicated rural policing to up the odds of getting caught combined with similar sentences to robbing the post office ie treat it as armed robbery with a rural sweeney doing both pro active intel and response combined with an active farmwatch system.

the "deliverance"option and rustlers start disappearing (it does not take long to bury a van with a digger)

possible neither would completely stop the problem but as there are probably a limited number of rustlers it would reduce it both directly and by inducing such perps to find a safer trade ,as the chance of detection and penalties are minimal at the mo it is seen as "easy money"

I don't agree that they were shot for meat - if you were doing that and had got sufficiently tooled up to humanely kill an animal you'd make sure you could take it with you!

That makes it even more sick that it was probably done just for the hell of it Twisted Evil

Red neck lesbian hate crime? They still play banjo in some parts of the country.

I wouldn't like to speculate but there's perhaps something going on that we, and possibly they, don't know about.

i was suggesting banjo practice as a means to prevent such things gregotyn

A friend lost 35 replacement ewes grazing a piece of ground away from the farmstead. How they got away with it we can't fathom as the exit from the field was so close to a house, but occupied by newcomers/townies. We have suspicions locally to who, but no proof. Someone has been convicted locally in the past but this one went undetected.
