Saturday provided some cloud cover, a pleasant relief to the sultry Summer days we've experienced over the previous week. Destination Chabo was reached just in time for a morning tea of cream buns and coffee, no salted beef and damper for these modern cowboys.
Chabo is rejoicing in the wonderful season we've enjoyed, resulting in postcard perfect views in every direction.
Our young team members did us proud, following Dad's lead and keeping in position.
Jessie steadied the lead

The dogs helped out when necessary, Fred deciding the cowboy to cow ratio was far too high and opted to ride on the bike with me much of the way.
Dad scouted ahead keeping neighbouring cattle away from the mob, and had to go into battle with a certain young mickey intent on joining our group.
At the end of the day all were pleased to see the neighbour's yards and cows were yarded without incident.
With clouds looming, due to the very southern reach of Cyclone Anthony, we were fortunate to get the cattle out when we did.
Home now, the rain is bucketing down.
