The back paddock: sunsets, cattle, lambs and goats | Gallery

From goats to sunsets, lambs to poddy calves, here’s what our readers have been snapping in their back paddocks.

With the mercury rising over the summer holidays, many of our contributors have snapped their animals cooling down.

From a working dog beating the heat in a trough, to a mob of cattle at a dam, here’s how some of our four-legged friends have been keeping cool over the silly season.

The Back Paddock gallery features contributed photos from across the north west of NSW and southern Queensland.

It can be anything rural-related, from stock to crops and everything in between.

A selection of each week’s photos appear in our printed agricultural editions of Country Leader,North West Magazine and Border News.

To see your photos in print or in our online gallery, email them to
