Advice from an old farmer

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
Words that soak into your ears are whispered… not yelled.
Meanness don’t jes’ happen overnight.
Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.
Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.
You cannot unsay a cruel word.
Every path has a few puddles.
When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
The best sermons are lived, not preached.
Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna happen anyway.
Don’t judge folks by their relatives.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
Live a good, honorable life… Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.
Don ‘t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t bothering you none.
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.
The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin’.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..

Sage advice. But the fencing wisdom wont work here. A kangaroo will jump a fence that height no worries. And a wombat will get under it no matter what you do. Then there is the Camels who'll knock posts down to get through. .. 🤷🏼‍♂️

I've never heard of this so I googled it. Unbelievable... I knew about your overabundance of rabbits but I didn't know why they were introduced to your country in the first place. To be hunted for sport. Again - - unbelievable!

@TentmakerJohn It seems every animal that is introduced here, and gets into the wild, explodes in population. My thinking has been. Why couldn't we have done this with endangered species?

That's perfectly logical!

Excellent! We should all be old farmers.

But are there enough old farms to go around?
That's a lifetime - and then some - of wisdom right there.
