    1400 head, hey. Lots of rib bones and kai-ay bones for a big corroboree. Who will bring that much Fruity Lexia? Uncle Ho and V8Ian, it's your shout.

    By all means get a Defender. If you get a good one, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.

    I'm guessing it wouldn't be the first time an outback cop has been done for a bit of duffing.

    Most outback police paddocks had a few "stray" beasts in them. A perk of office.

    Grandfather reckoned you couldn't call yourself a drover unless you left the Territory with 2000 fat bullocks and delivered 2000 less rations to Dajarra plus a few "overs" to take home.

    Duffing is the hardest allegation to get a jury to deliver a guilty verdict.
    There was a case of a bloke charged with duffing, in the Roma Court. He was caught, redheaded, with the stolen cattle in his possession.
    The Jury returned with an explanation "We think he probably did it, but we're not sure."
    They were sent back for further deliberation and after another couple of statements, in a similar vein, the Judge read the riot act.
    The final verdict was Not Guilty, then the forman added the rider, if he gives them back.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    Harry Redford had every well dressed man dismissed from the jury at his trial. Found not guilty, the Judge famously said " I thank God the verdict is yours, gentlemen ,and not mine. "

    Iím pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    Thats more like it.

    Some properties also use electronic ear tags that register at certain places on the property, such as watering troughs and dams.So they can keep a good eye on the stock,and where it is at all times.Its all computerised.

    For that many to go missing, its a bit strange.

    Anyway,we will probably never know the truth.
