    This is awesome video Rob!! Have been on the calf marking muster with my 4 sisters in 1990 and it was very cool…we kept a diary on our trip and often reminisce about our trip. Thanx for sharing this – Cheers

  • Rob says:

    Hi Helen. Thanks for sharing that. I did a day calf marking earlier this year so have a small idea of your great adventure. I’m also sure you and your 4 sisters would have been a wonderful addition and distraction to the stockmen during their year on the station too! You might be interested to know that I took portraits of Anne and Don Reid recently in Te Anau – who would have been there on your visit? Regards, Rob

    Hi Cory. I’m pleased you like it. Hope it’s a good fair record of the work you guys get up to. Not sure how to let the other guys know about it? Can you tell them?
    Thanks again for a bloody good adventure.

    keep coming back to this wonderful book full of memories for me. I worked for Ann and Don in 1979 -80, no milking machine then. best time ever. go back as much as poss. Just horse trekked through with husband and mates Lake McRae to Carters Saddle. even found some stragglers in the Tweed. Remember taking the cows over the Robinson, my fingers were so frozen I could hardly undo the girth strap. that country does something to you, cant wait to go back again. thankyou for the great video and photos you bought it to life.

  • Rob says:

    Hi Sally. Thank you for the nice words. It’s clearly under our skins. If I’m right, people have been saying I need to come visit you at your wonderful location one day? I’d love too. Regards, Rob

  • [...] that I worked alongside were great company and willing helpers to make things work – especially helping to coax a greenhorn horse rider into a horse rider of sorts – thank you. Robbie Burton worked passionately to make Molesworth a title to be proud of.  Thank [...]

    that was bloody marvelous, thankyou. I came here by way of investigating why we have blue meanies of our new $50.What a great adventure for me sitting in the comfort of my couch by the fire, on Waiheke Island.

  • Rob says:

    Ha, that’s great to hear, and thanks for taking the time to comment. Does it get cold enough on Waiheke to have fires BTW? :-> Regards, Rob
