bulls in the rain

Black bulls everywhere this afternoon – if you were in the same paddocks as me near Norsewood!

I was taking photos at the annual Mt Mable Angus bull sale at Pukerimu – home to Kevin and Megan Friel.

It was a tad wet at times when viewing the bulls before the sale…

Jackets and gumboots were the order of the day … the drought seems like distant history

They don’t scare me (much) but they do give me rather a surprise at times when I stop looking through the wide angle lens and realise they are almost within touching distance!

and the auction begins :)

back to the bulls in a less-wet moment... this is my favourite bull shot of the day

Here are more details about Mt Mable Angus ๐Ÿ™‚

Atahua’s sale was held this morning on the other side of the mountains… and they shall continue for a few weeks yet!
