If she becomes as proficient with gear changes as she is with the air horn she'll be carting weaners in no time.
Dad's early enthusiasm waning as the morning progressed and the humidity rose at the same rate as the hay stack.
With hay in the shed before breakfast, we headed to Bottle Tree where meatworks cattle were to be drafted in line with the other master plan to keep the wolves from the door.
And though the two inches of rain received there earlier in the month has all but disappeared, it did provide relief in the form of improving condition of the dry cattle there. It was a case of show no mercy as anything showing a decent level of cover was drafted off for the meatworks.
With an ETA on the wet season difficult to establish, it was a case of implementing plans to cope with this dry spell.
Cattle will continue to roll out every month if need be.
With Dad and Wallace back today to truck cattle, the girls and I are enjoying a restful, last minute prep session before back to school tomorrow.
Happy Australia Day.
