Weekends are often busy times here at Bimbadeen – the kids get to saddle up and head out with Mark to do a little cattle work.
This past weekend was such a time – with some black Brangus heifers being shifted from their grower paddock to their new home, a breeder paddock to the north.
The dogs got a run too, and worked beautifully to keep the cows moving as they looked to take advantage of the fresh green pick coming through (after some very welcome rain recently – between 20 and 50mm across the property).
It was a bit sweaty …
She found a couple but they were busy getting aquainted (in a mother-and-son fashion) and were happy to let the mob walk by…
It wasn’t long before the destination was in sight…
And everyone rewarded themselves with a good long drink!
These heifers have held condition beautifully through a very dry Winter and Autumn, and will now be joined with a Bimbadeen sire.
We do hope our clients and readers have managed to get under some decent falls of rain lately – and if not yet, then soon!
