34 17-12-2018 Wilkerson Rd West Toodyay Bobtails At least 8-10. Theyre here every day and have been for years. There are at least 2 new juveniles this season. Most of them have a few ticks but still look healthy. Last year I took a couple to Kanyana with the flu like symptoms but after treatment I brought them home, as well as some extras which needed rehoming. Theyre mostly quite habituated to me and climb over my feet or try to climb up my leg. A bit scratchy!
