1991 Pidgeon Series (Jandamarra)
"Jandamara" came to Lennard River Station as a boy with his family. Fast, cheeky and small he was thus nick-named Pidgeon. He quickly learned the ropes of the English language, shearing and horsemanship. He was believed to be the best horseman in the district. Here he is, somehow as ready for flight as the bird beside him. Perched atop the yard in white man's clothes that are not able to hide this little misfit's cheeky defiant spirit.
