smoko time

The cattle are given a spell while we also take a break. We make a small fire and boil the billy and have a cuppa tea. The mustering is done in the air with a helicopter and on the ground with motorbikes and the tray top.
Your pictures are all very wonderful and interesting. And the words you use too. Some I have no idea what they mean! I didn't know what mustering was, so I looked it up. Not sure what boil the "billy" is either.

@lynnz To "boil the billy" when we are mustering, means we light a fire and fill the tin pot with water, put it on the fire and boil it to make a cup of tea or coffee. I must remember that not everyone on 365 is an Aussie, we use a lot of slang.
