Playing in an Unfenced Paddock

Posted by Lotg on October 20, 2003

This term was used by a nervous boyfriend when describing a situation in our relationship. I'd never heard it before, but I liked it so much that I actually registered a company in the name 'Unfenced Paddock Pty Ltd'.

Friends who know me, have assumed it's something to do with my farming venture or my bush upbringing. They don't seem to have any knowledge of the meaning implied by my then boyfriend.

I obviously know what he was getting at, at the time, but without giving that away, is anyone else familiar with the term and in what sense?
