Bronco Branding, Cleanskins, Jobs n'Jokes!
Time to go down that hessian lined memory lane,
Let's see how the 'old fella's' did it back in the day... RFTTE member Corin Lynch recently posted some fantastic shots and video of his time circa 1977 on Moola Bulla Station near Halls Creek in the Kimberley - no crushes there; branding and marking was done on a timber Bronco Panel. You won't see it done much on cattle stations these days, though the Bronco branding tradition has been kept alive in competitions in Alice Springs and Oodnadatta.
An excellent poem by Corin Linch that sums up Bronco Branding with rare footage...
Tim Parry also checks in with some classic shots taken of Brunette Downs in the 1960's, as well as a trivia question about the 'ABC races'; as well as some yesteryear action shots on RFTTE Instagram.
