Business As Usual

With all the paving done it was business as usual yesterday with a full bore run and other odd jobs. The bore run when smoothly with nothing going wrong making for a nice change, the bores and pumps are all running flat out to keep up water to the cattle as the remaining billabongs have dried up putting more pressure on the troughs and dams. The rain that was predicted for weekend seems to snubbed us as there isn’t a single cloud in the sky.

Just The Usual

The past few days on Humbert have been pretty standard carrying out routine work such as bore runs, lick runs and fencing, we’ve also been collecting rocks to pave the front of the homestead. The trees around the station are flowering adding a bit of color to the dry environment, but with the flowers come the bees which swarm around the bores looking for any water they can get. The weather continues to heat up and is growing more humid by the day but there is still no sign of more rain, hopefully we’ll get some soon.

Mustering

With the contractors down a couple of blokes I’ve been back in the paddock and in the yards  helping with the mustering. But other jobs still have to be done with plenty of fences in need of repair and bores and pumps in need of checking. We’ve also gotten another potty calf bringing the total up to six, at least they won’t get lonely.
