  4. they look as they would wait for you :o) is it helpful to feed them in winter or will they find what they need without help? what was it what chased them away? was the guy on the left side a “lonely rider ” or a member of the ketchup mob too?

    • Easy they always fond plenty of food her luckily their range on our neighbourhood is very very big and they move from property to property ..if we were to feed them then they would have big problems..like bears in the USA they would depend on human and they need to work it out for themselves..their are lots of paddocks and dams and they do very well as can be seen by their size and the size of their mobs πŸ™‚ they were startled when the big guy on the left came up because his feet were crunching on the frosty ground hahaha they are ready to go in a second it is instinct..he was a part of the mob and just grazing on the other side with the baby..in fact I was filmng the baby and missed the action as he went across the driveway him and the big roo that was near the fenceline had a boxing match! it was over quick and just a bit of young male bravado πŸ™‚ the baby crossed too and when I went to the shops a bit later they were at my neighbours lying in the sun πŸ™‚ and yes they stop and look when I come out…usually a couple will continue to watch me until I go..just making sure I pose no threat πŸ™‚

      • they are wonderful and I’m afraid I would do nothing than to watch them the whole day (of course, it’s “brandnew” for me). I hope they will have a good roo-life an no one will hunt or hurt them. I’ve read about the great hunt in 2012 and now they are rare, so sad :o(

              • me too and I was sad as I saw a restaurant what offered roo-steaks or ostrich-meat… fortunately the most people thought the same and this restaurant was history within some month. sometimes I skip the news, it’s too much… all are mad about that politician (from environment department!) who paid 30k bucks to kill a lion in africa… but no one acts or is willing to do something. and all the petitions and complaints are like dust in the wind…

I am now off to beddies my friend..it is now 0.2 c and the morning will be frosty and frozen again..i will tell my roos you said hello πŸ™‚ have a great day hugs fozziemum xx

                • I agree..they have a shortfall in the manly department and also the brain area..always a way to make up for it is to kill an animal..i say you want to kill a lion go fight one with your bare hands…seems fair..cowards …I had a lovely sleep and the Ketchup mob have been hiding today πŸ™‚
