Related story, funny yet true.
When i was about 6, the old boy took my sister and i out the side of the shed to do a rooster for dinner.
I'd say he geed it up though, because when he headed it, he "passed" it to the sister who was about 4(?), who shat and missed it of course.
Anyway that rooster, I swear to this day, it's first cartwheel was 12ft high. I can kinda remember seeing Dad looking up at it out the corner of my eye. Rooster nearly made the first paddocks fence with that first jump. He was over on the second, then took maybe 3 (it was awhile ago, and i was a kid still ) to get into the scrub at the boundary. That was 100metres in the time it took for the old man to put the axe in the block and start heading after it.
We never did have meat that night lol
