TAS Country : April 12th 2012
12 Tasmanian Country Friday, April 13, 2012 News Osteopathy for horses, riders ANYONE who wants to learn about equine oste- opathy will have the chance this weekend when one of the world's experts visits Tasmania. Stephen Schwartz has more than 40 years' experi- ence as an osteopath after graduating from the Brit- ish College of Osteopathic Medicine. Since then Mr Schwartz has worked in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia and lives in Israel. After visiting Tasmania in October last year, Mr Schwartz has now re- turned to run a two-day workshop this weekend. The workshop will be held at the Let It Be Ther- apy Agistment Farm at Sprent in the state's north- west. Participants will learn hands-on methods to help relax their horses, treat lameness, osteoarthritis, stiff joints, head carriage issues as well as aggressive behaviour and sacroiliac realignment. The workshop will run form 10am until 4pm to- morrow and Sunday. Mr Schwartz will also be available for consultations for horses and people while in Tasmania. To find out more, contact Sue Docherty on 6429 3384 or log on to www.stephen.co.il Hefty fine for dumping cattle carcasses FOR the second time in less than six months, a fine has been issued for dump- ing cattle carcasses in the far North West. A man has been fined by the Environment Protec- tion Authority for dump- ing cattle carcasses at a forestry coupe at Lileah at Circular Head. He was issued with en- vironmental infringement notices totalling $1950. EPA director Alex Schaap said staff had in- vestigated the incident after it was reported by an officer from Forestry Tasmania. ''An investigation was conducted, resulting in the issuing of the two environ- mental infringement no- tices,'' Mr Schaap said. The man was fined and also required to properly dispose of the carcasses. ''These fines serve as a reminder to Tasmanians that regulations are in place concerning the dis- posal of animal carcasses and must be adhered to,'' Mr Schaap said. Social media workshop A FREE workshop to help Landcare groups make the most of social media will be held next weekend in Launceston. The workshop, on April 21, is being organised by NRM North. Running from 11am to 1pm, the workshop is suit- able for people with little or no existing knowledge about social media or online group management. The workshop will pro- vide an overview of the online services available, help participants to de- velop a simple social media plan and provide one-on- one assistance to get the basics set up. There will only be a few spare computers available, so participants are encour- aged to bring along their own laptop, notebook or tablet computer if possible. For more information about the workshop or to register your attendance please contact Adrian Ja- mes on 6333 7777 or email email@example.com 9XSTD GALVANIZED 1.5X HEAVY GALVANIZED 1 1 1 1 ED D D D D D D D D D D D D D D ® Registered trademark of OneSteel Wire Pty Limited, Ingall Street, Mayfield, NSW 2304. Phone: 13 10 80. ABN 59 000 010 873. ONE1465/TC. If you want a fence that lasts, you'll need Australia's leading fence wire, Waratah Longlife Blue colour . It has been proven to last at least 9 times longer than standard galvanized and at least 1.5 times longer than heavy galvanized wire. This proves that it's not how thick the wire coating is, but how long the wire lasts that counts. To see how it performs visit www.onesteelwaratah.com.au and watch the time-lapse videos.
