And then the Sun Shone Bright

The first four consecutive hours of sunshine we've experienced in many weeks led the big fella to jump at an opportunity to truck some cattle away.

While there are those amongst us who may have silently doubted such rashness, 'tis not for us to question why.

Hands up who already knew this is how the day would pan out.

My girls were fascinated by proceedings.

Me ... not so much.

Plenty of time for camera fiddling,

while bucket-loads of gravel were brought in to rectify a sticky situation.

Though as they say, all's well that ends well.


  1. Laughing Fiona! Mind you, good thing the sun is out as you should see Rob's work clothes after he busied himself putting cattle through very sloppy yards........

  2. Laughing too, as of course you would not even have to say a word, just a raised eyebrow would have been sufficient.

    You need a new pair of joggers, those ones aren't going to keep much mud out! I'll send down my glorious yellow gumboots, they'll perish from lack of use in these parts! ;-)

    suggest Ainsley to send Rob to work in boardies next time, would be easier for the laundress!

  3. Fiona, I am in stitches! By the by, good strong pieces of carpeting are perfect for such emergencies (tuck under wheels and proceed forward! Voila!!)
    Blessings to you and yours,

  4. Oh Dear! We had a bDouble of our cattle bogged near here (he pulled up for a sleep on the stock route- just where the flood water had recently subsided from) a couple of weeks ago, Luckily we have a very cluey neighbour who dropped everything and brought his pulleys and cable, it took him a half an hour to set it all up and then they could have pulled him out with a motorcycle- but hubby used a front end loader. Even the tow truck driver said- well this won't work. the old busjie said- Watch and learn, watch and learn.

  5. You have very cute cows and calves! As for the truck....I had a giggle!
