Cover story // A Day in the Life of .... Sally Smyth, contract musterer

Sally Smyth, 22 years old, grew up on her family property, "Wilandra", 170km northeast of Broken Hill. She’s a contract musterer. Aside from mustering, she will take on horse breaking, fencing, wool classing, and any other rural work. Sally goes where the work is and travels all over western New South Wales and areas of South Australia, with her car, bike and dogs.
Pre-order magazine via website, or, see on sale in all good newsagents and stockists.
SALLY: The morning starts with a 5am brekky. The smell of bacon and eggs the boys have whipped up, wafts out of the camp kitchen. After a routine cup of coffee, smoko (morning tea) and lunch are packed, camel packs (water) are filled and dogs are let off. There's a last minute check to make sure you haven't forgotten to charge your radio (UHF) over night – someone always forgets. The bikes are fuelled and warmed up, all waiting eagerly for first light when the chopper and gyro can get in the air to get our day started.
I'm usually on a bike for the muster, although I am halfway through training to do my gyro licence. (Sally is waiting until next winter to finish her training - in winter there's less heat in the air, so less heat pockets and less turbulence.)
The team soon moves out, emitting a noisy rumble of half a dozen or more DRZ 400's as we get our directions from the spotters in the air. It definitely pays to know where north, south east and west are at all times. Everyone works as a team, but we individually get given directions from the pilots and get put on smaller mobs of goats. Spread out across 20,000 acres, we break in each of our mobs using our dogs, to be able to handle them better with a motorbike and walk them to a central meeting point, usually a set of yards. We then meet up with the other mobs the rest of the riders have gathered.

That one time James let me drive his precious bull catcher and I was so excited/nervous that I had to take a quick selfie!
