My 'Other Life'

Yesterday I was called upon to help with some stock work.  It's not the most pleasant task and sometimes can be downright dangerous [more so for those who are not familiar with it].  We were treating cattle for lice and putting them onto some better fodder.  We have dogs to help us with stock work, and much of the time cannot do without them.  Some of these photos show a bit of what goes on in my 'other life'.   The images show how the dogs help the stock 'understand' what they are supposed to do.  They are not the clearest photos, as I've taken them as stills from video footage.

The dogs are doing a great job cutting the cattle. Love seeing pics of your other life.

Hi Linda, thanks for the pics: goodness those dogs do work hard don't they?

This part of your life is so different from the "bling" part but both form a very interesting journey for you. Although I am an Aussie girl through and through and have lived in the country I have never lived the life you live and it is so interesting when you share some of it with us all in blogger land. Thanks xxx

Hi Linda, Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting and checking out my butterfly postcard. It is nice to see the rural side of your life. We had working cattle dogs when we were growing up, and they are so amazing. Love your blog header picture, so quintessentially Australian. Cheers Dianne.
