Spent ANZAC day transferring the girls into their new gear and getting them on their new hive stand. Really happy with how it all looks  :-D :-D :-D

Is that stand Kangaroo proof CJ?
I heard a full grown Kangaroo can knock a hive off a stand with his back feet?  :-D

Setup looks lovely! How deep are your posts? Here I have to go 3 feet or more to get below the frost line or the stand will heave in the winter and the level will get wonky .....   :-D :-D

Yeah they seem to have settled nicely  :) Cheers!
Haha! Should be Roo proof! I sunk the posts about 350-400mm. The stand was designed with our cows in mind - anything to them is a good scratching post so hopefully this will stop them tipping them if they get under the hot wires.
