Bounce is another vital member of our team.
As well as an endless source of company and cuddles, she’s a vigilant guard dog, an expert ratter and an effective snake repellant.
Far from being afraid, our horses can’t get enough of Bounce and are forever trying to smell and nuzzle her.
When we take the 4WD to the top paddock, Bounce often tears along beside us – a white streak glimpsed through the tall grass.
When Bounce wants to ride, she can leap six times her height to make it through an open door.
You’ll often see her on the back seat; front paws on the arm rest, face out the window, checking that the herd is safe.
After posing for this photo, Bounce leapt off the big hay roll as if it were no higher than a doormat.
She ain’t called Bounce for nothing!
