This didn't really fit into any of the other categories so here we are!
I have a heap of photos I wanted to put up here so this will be my thread to show some photos and tell you guys what I'm doing.
I'm currently working for mustering season on a cattle station in the Pilbara in Western Australia. The station runs mostly shorthorn and Brahman cattle and is slowly moving over to drought masters. We muster during winter because it's dry and not too hot! Everything comes in, all the ****ty cattle and the fat steers and fat dry cows get sold, calves get marked, weaners get marked and weaned, and we buy in some new heifers and bulls.
We have finished al the outside musters of all the lesser quality cattle now and are having a little it of a break and just doing the inside paddocks with the nice, cooperative cattle!
Today we mustered a paddock on a mix of droughtmasters and shorthorns and a LOT of calves. We spent a few hours walking along on foot with the calves because they don't move too well off the buggies or horses.
Anyway into the photos! A lot of random ones here.
First some of me actually out mustering.

One of the mustering buggies - these get a real beating, including knocking over scrub bulls and rogue cows to be shot!

Some of the adorable calves
That will do for now, more to come!
