  • The Wellington Advertiser - The Bailey Bridge
    river and flying about indicated strongly that the farm was dead centre of the north south migration route to my eyes then and now it was and is God s glimpse of heaven On that bridge I first met Jack Forrestel who was introduced to me as the farm manager It was on that bridge that I learned that the farm s name was to be christened Niska On that same bridge I learned that Niska was the Cree Indian name for Canada goose the goose that they dreamed of bringing back from near extinction the goose that with the help of God and a sprinkling of widespread farsighted others they certainly did The bridge became a birder s paradise its single lane capacity slows the traffic keeping road kill to a minimum There is absolutely no other area surrounding Guelph that more deserves conservation than this little rustic Bailey Bridge not only for the multitude of people who now care but for uncounted generations yet to come as well as for the existing wildlife that continually frequents the surrounding area Exercising the courtesy of Google on the Internet I typed in Bailey Bridge and lacking the need to search ample controversy spread before me It relates that the bridge is slated for replacement to accommodate two lane passages to the recommended widening of Niska Road What a heartbreaker My thoughts quickly jumped in the direction of feeling sorry Not sorry for what you may obviously think but deeply sorry for those far seeing councillors whose vote will obviously be swayed to self defeat by biased last minute niggling scare tactics by those who care for little other than the worship of the almighty dollar It warms the cobbles of no one s heart to see far sighted dreams of the caring vanish like sparkling hoarfrost in the morning sun This bridge and the area that surrounds as Mother Nature presented is like an uncut diamond Let s keep it that way Why should it not remain as it was and is a fascinating green area The road bearing the name of the once was Niska Waterfowl Sanctuary should be quietly closed and made into a much needed bicycle and walking trail and the rustic little bridge should be featured as is accenting as it does the unique cultural heritage landscape within where it sits Come on readers you know that I am a bird lover a tree hugger addicted to nature and proud of all three Talk to your councillors Make sure they do what is fair do what is right Take care cause we care barrie barriehopkins ca 519 986 4105 Vol 49 Issue 06 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log

    number of other weird discoveries around which my mind refuses to comprehend and my tongue balks at pronouncing Booster shots will follow a year after their first ones were administered When I go out to play with them they are first let out of their temporary improvised kennel to run around and see the other animals then tiring of this they romp and chase each other around the open stable When they get tired of wrestling with each other I now find it necessary to plunk my butt firmly on top of a bale of hay and by keeping my heavy winter gloves on as protection against tiny sharp toenails I am able to challenge their rough and tumble mock attacks that are accented by playful growls woof woofs and occasional two or three loud barks As they get older they will have their sharp little nails trimmed be taught that jumping up on people should no longer be in their thoughts and be further taught to know that no means no at whatever mischief their combined brains may have trumped up WestWind Farms is leaning strongly in the direction of total organic gardening and humane raising feeding housing and caring for animals that are grown for food And falling quietly in place with this is the live and let live scenario Fewer hunters are allowed on the farm and we hope that when fully grown the Great Pyrenees wandering habit by night coupled with the llama s alert guarding habits by day will end the need for hunting once and for all The hope is to cut any losses to the larger predators without harming the predator species Confrontation between these large dogs by night and the quick territory protecting actions of the far sighted llamas by day will encourage the trespassing predators to seek less challenging hunting grounds elsewhere Time will tell Take care cause we care barrie barriehopkins ca 519 986 4105 Vol 49 Issue 05 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror our parents Putting up with put downs A tale of two landlords A letter from the campsite Two

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Frosty Friday
    or giving a damn from the pockets of hardworking over stressed workers Needless to say with a couple more sips of coffee while enjoying the warm morning sun my mood soon changed and my gaze switched back to the animals that romped in their respective paddocks My son had just released Sage our appaloosa mare and the two llamas Larry and Dolly from their stalls in the barn and all three seemed to be enjoying the sunshine I could hear the clip clop of Sage s hooves on the frozen ground as she galloped in what appeared to be a figure eight several times round Then she lay down and rolled over time and time again On rising she shook the snow off that she had rubbed into her coat Then contented she wandered over to munch some hay from the rack Larry and Dolly appeared to be walking on air as they light footed circled the fence line with their forward stare and banana shaped ears pointing upward and straight ahead It seemed they were more interested in who might be infringing on their territory than what was up and about They too joined Sage their side by side stablemate on the sunny side of the hay rack The goats as they are due to drop their young at any time are kept housed in a roomy communal pen within the barn while the heritage Berkshire hogs having their own lined up barracks romp in and out while pushing and shoving however whenever and wherever they should so desire It is fun to watch them romp in the snow while enjoying the warmth of the winter sun It is time now for me to get off my butt and go let Bell and Bonnie our Santa brought Pyrenees pups out for a run and romp in the snow Boy They are sure growing fast Take care cause we care barrie barriehopkins ca 519 986 4105 Vol 49 Issue 04 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror our parents Putting up with put downs A tale of two landlords A letter from the campsite
