Ringers learn the ropes.

20130714_170120130714_164820130714_168420130714_1742Over the weekend we all travelled to Noccoundra for the yearly Gymkhana. They held a workshop for the ringers in handling cattle and how to avoid being injured when the cattle charge.They had Brahman weaners who are usually the ones that become aggressive and will often charge.

They enticed the cattle to charge and learnt to step to the side to avoid being hit and learnt not to run as you cant watch the beast from behind.
When they process the cattle in the yards they often have injuries due to the cattle rubbing them up,so hopefully from what they have learnt they will be able to avoid getting hurt.
