ALittle Cattle Man Wisdom.
Jack-a-roos are like barbwire fences.
They have their good points.
Never walk when you can ride.
You are not born a cattle man, you become one.
Behind every successful station owner
is a wife who works in town.
If an Outrider offers you tea, by Harry
- you drink!
Never squat with your spurs on.
Always drink upstream of a herd.
A bushfire is everyone's concern.
Never set up camp in a riverbed.
Only a fool argues with a copperhead, a camel,
or a cook.
No gun shearer is faster on the draw than a granny
producing baby photos from her purse.
Tossing a rope before making a loop
will catch you no calf.
Nobody but cattle know why they stampede,
and they ain't talking.
If the rodeo don't kill you, the commute will.
You can mess with a stockman's wife, his ride or
his booze, but by gum you don't touch the man's dog!
It is a mistake to drive black cattle at night.
