The Drover SongJune 14th, 2010 by Rina
The lead character in the movie, Australia, was played by Hugh Jackman the 2008 Sexiest Man Alive…. how fitting that we named our boy after the character he portrays, “The Drover”.
A drover in Australia is a person, typically an experienced stockman, who moves livestock, usually sheep or cattle, “on the hoof” over long distances. Reasons for droving may include: delivering animals to a new owner’s property, taking animals to market, or moving animals during a drought in search of better feed and/or water. Moving a small mob of quiet cattle is relatively easy, but moving several hundred head of wild station cattle over long distances is a completely different matter.
