Robert and his family had a dairy farm in Bossley Park. The land
they once owned is now a part of Fairfield City Farm and the Western
Sydney Regional Park.
We did dairy for a while and started, I used it for breeding horses with the extra ground. And we built the rodeo ground and called it the BBN Rodeo … BBN Rodeo. And a lot of the locals learnt to like rodeos and learnt to ride and started their rodeo career … in those BBN grounds. We also built a … quarter mile racetrack cos I – at the time – I was breeding … Quarter Horses. So we had Quarter Horse races there.
And we had other at sporting events. And I used to lease the ground – we used to take in boarders, horse boarders and they used to come out and ride their horses around the property. I used to let the Scouts use the top of the hill there for their weekends for their … for their training and it used to save them going miles away. They could do everything up there, they could abseil; there was every kind of animal up there, goannas, snakes and roos and rabbits and wild pigs sometimes, foxes. So they were virtually in the bush and they got a lot of enjoyment out of that. I didn't charge them anything.
