Very sad to report we lost Mustard not long after she went back to work after weaning her pups. She was a great character. 

I don’t have many photos of Mustard, she was bred by Kevin Noble in S.A. and came up here as a youngster when his work situation changed. She’s a full sister to Nakara by Wills….error in pedigree, should be BD Sam II. Mustard has a fair bit of eye and was a bit  ‘sticky’ but has grown out of it now, and can work a mob nicely. She’s been working cattle up at Mt Larcom with the Zeimers and is still a work in progress but definitely a keeper. I took some film of her shortly after she came up to Qld when I showed her to Arthur Crumblin.

I asked Emma to describe her work: ‘Mustard has a good walk up and is patient enough to hold her position until the stock walk off her. She’s a tough bitch and can take a fair knock and come back like it was nothing. She’s a fairly dominant bitch that can handle a fair bit of pressure from the handler. Reads her stock well and doesn’t hassle the lead.’
