Sunday outing....

Saturday was still and stunning...............Sunday was sunny buy OMG a chilly wind blew all day and I pretty much had my coat on all day........
we had to check our cattle as we heard there was a pig dog causing trouble at the nieghbours but no sign of it thankfully..........everything was settled and happy.......
We had to find some cattle down the river............
its rough as guts driving down there...........
but stunning sights to see..........glorious big old trees.........
I was mechanics assistant...........we need to pump up a pile of tyres on field bins and jack them up to get their wheels under them............checking tyres on lots of other farming equipment...........a shitty job I hate...........my tummy muscles were sore from jacking the field bins............not quiet as easy as jacking your car up to change a tyre...............
But look what I found doing this job.............
Meet "Lucky" she was sitting beside one of the field bins........didn't get up and run away when we went over..........she did get up when Mr Chooky hunted her but just stood there and I was trying to take a photo and looking and thinking why had you not run away.........then it was quick we need to catch her as she was very hallow and hungry..........so we popped her in the cage and she traveled around with us in our work and I shared my drink bottle with her..........she was very happy to have a drink of milk last night when we got home well after dark..........Lucky we were doing that job and found her otherwise she would have died.........whether she's a twin or has a careless mother I am not sure......
 
there were babies hiding in the rolly polly.......
this one was brand spankers new........trying to find its feet and get to mum for a drink..........
oh yeah and the river doesn't have any water running in it like most of you would expect to see a river.........there is a slight hole over there against the bank in the shadows.........
Hope your Sunday was a good one.........
Catch you later......

  3. I'm so glad you were able to find Lucky. It sounds like you had a bit of cattle adventures. I'm pretty sure my husband wouldn't trust me to be mechanic's assistant. Have a nice week! Andrea

  7. Well what an outing. Love all those pics. The cows really are cute. Gosh that rain is desperately needed. I've been watching all those poor texans. Really is one extreme to the other isn't it?

  9. Sometimes those very rough as tracks can get pretty tiring. Lucky looks quite content in the cage. It is so dry again. Hoping for some rain soon.
