Cattle Drive, Aussie style

Cattle Drive Roll over a bit in me swag Get some bones clear of the ground Dew is on us swag cover is wet Dingo is howling around The cattle are camped in the corner The frogs are croaking, smile creeps Old horse has the nose bag on Oats n the chaff for his keep Fox has his nose in the camp oven Cattle dog snarls n he freaks Fox has blurted and gone now Cattle dog goes back to sleep At daylight we are catching the horses Hobbles come off as they squeak Saddle and mount a grumpy horse be unloaded, you’re bloody weak :) Old horse drops his head again smartly Pigroots around the flat Stay with him mate it’s only oats causing springing like that. Cattle move on down the Stockroute 15 mile a day cross water n creeks 40 mile to the railhead Darby The Shielas are waiting so sweet. Don Johnson Hey Babe I know the feeling Im a whiz at computers been using since 1990 . My little laptop has inbuilt webcam i record from. I was using a usb type video camera ...which worked well. Do make an effort to put you on you tube ... there is lots of crappity crap there so you will be welcomed there .. i have 190 poems n talking too...just good fun its what i Don
