4 Waltzing Matilda

The Boss

The annual muster ends with the rounding up of half-wild cattle called  'scrubbers' that have roamed the back country for a year. They are being  held on a cattle camp outside the station while the 'cleanskins' born since  the last muster are drafted out for branding and the surplus male calves  castrated. Then a selection is cut out for the long drive to the sale yards  and abattoirs. The men are as skilled as their clever quarterhorses and the  boss pauses for a moment of quiet satisfaction as day nears its end. This painting was published as Plate 19 in The Painted Swagman - A Tribute to Waltzing Matilda.
