Yes I was wondering the same thing just the other day. I have space for one to two horses if need be and can collect them also so just wanted to put my name down somewhere as I did last year with Bobbiegirl.

Step away from the computer,
wheres the list? still can't find it.......

it may be wise to "finalise" (don't think it ever really will be) the list so we can all print it and stash it away with the fire plans

Out of my way, I am in the midst of a hoo haa monologue
I have noticed there are more and more people joining here from the south west corner of Vic...

So if there is anyone who wants a safe evacuation paddock, I have a shared one available, however it is conditionable on teh weather and fire locations...

If anyone is interested in organising something for this area - feel free to PM me....

Step away from the computer,
I'm in Longwarry (SW Gippsland.) Dependent on weather warnings at the time I can take some horses on if anyone needs it. I hope no one does! Stay safe everyone.

If they didnt close our local ones down - that would be a good option!!! nearest sale yards to Portland are warrnambool, hamilton & Mt gambier... all at least an hour INTO most likely fire direction...


I did hear that some people were planning on rocking up at Yarraman park in Portland if they needed to...they didnt know if it would be "allowed", but they are doing it anyway, as there are yards and water there...

Step away from the computer,
I have room for several horses at my place in Ballarat. The fencing is secure horse fencing for anything from a shetland upwards and there is plenty of grass and I am on mains water. All I ask is mares or geldings only- no stallions.

Im sure if there is a threat, they wont be arguing over 'allowed or not'.. atleast i hope not!
For us, its cows in the yard, with the sprinkler system going..
generator for pump, hoses over cows and dairy..
i honestly shudder to even think of the thought! .. We have stock spread over 500 acres, sheep, calves, weaners, yearlings, bulls, milking herd, dry cows..

im thinking Yarraman park, the footy reserve near the lagoon would be another good one too Hollie! (atleast water close by)

The forum drove me to drink. Remind me to thank it.
I did do a list for 2007 and 2008.

It rapidly became apparent on Black Saturday that even though I was sitting by the computer for most of the day watching it unfold, I couldn't keep up with people's offers of help. At one stage the offers of accommodation were rolling in faster than I could open the pm's. Whilst I was able to offer a suggestions to a couple of people looking to rehouse their horses, it became quickly apparent that there was a grave risk of sending people out of the fry pan into the fire. There was also the issue of trying to contact those who needed the help at the same time as trying to contact those offering it. Many areas in Black Saturday lost at least one form of communication, some lost all.

So, whilst the concept of the list is good, it is also problematic.

People need to have a clear idea of where they are going to move their horses well before the fire hits. One of the consistent trends in these fires is for the fire to be driven in a SE direction, followed by a change in the afternoon pushing it NE. There is NO safe direction really, to send people.

If you have decided to go, and have left it late, you are probably better off heading for your nearest major stock holding facility. At least there, aid can be given and animals yarded securely. Once there, maybe then put up something asking for temporary assistance. At least the information you get will be current.

I'm happy to put the old list back up, but I genuinely believe that people need to be better planned in the event of an emergency.


If a man says something in the forest, and no woman is there to hear him; is he still wrong?

i completly agree phil you explained everything perfectly.
You need to have a plan set into action straight. And def DO NOT LEAVE IT TO LATE. This is how some people lost their lifes last time.
Sometimes a safe option is to just harrow out a paddock or place the horses in the arena if you have one or local stock grounds as phil has said and hope for the best. Fire is a nasty thing but no one can predict how it will go and which way it will go with the winds changing.
Stay safe everyone winter is almost here

Exactly... And as megsie said - this where people come unstuck... they panic, and not think properly....



I am still happy to offer my paddock to those in need in the South West - But probably for those Cobbobbonee/Mt Eckles type directions, anything affecting Mt Clay, and my paddock is closed...

And whilst I believe my paddock is 99% safe in a fire situation (due to the combined planning of neighbouring landholders as well) there is always that small chance of my property coming under threat....

The Go List is an online resource to encourage Victorians in high bushfire areas to leave early. Although we have included many publicly listed agistments, the Go List is designed for individuals to volunteer their destinations for horses to encourage people to move them when a high risk day is predicted or to relocate during the bushfire season. The Go List was recognised at the recent 2010 Fire Awareness Awards for community preparation. We are working with veterinarians through AVA to encourage participation.
