General Information:

Over my Shoulder - In 1932 Mike Abraham decided that he had had enough, and advertised a disposal sale of all his stock. This was a great blow to the little Cinderella sheep industry of Molo, as he was one of the very few people there with the money to import good bloodstock from Australia and New Zealand. His imported, pure bred sheep he did not sell, but gave to Billy Poulton. This was an inspired gesture, because Billy always loved his sheep, as he loved all animals, and they had a better chance of survival at Kenjockety than in most other places.
Hut - Mike Abrahams.
Hut - beat syce who died - 18 months' jail. [CN: But this was his brother Jasper.] Changed surname to Furse, his mother's name
