Working Cattle

We worked the cattle at our other farm this morning.  We used the new cattle pens for the first time with the whole herd.  The cattle worked through the chute so much easier than with what was there before.  It took less than 2 hours for the 2 of us to work 39 cow/calf pairs.
Before, I would have to hide so the cattle would come down the chute.  Now I can get in a position to actually help.  Plus, I get to stand in the shade of the covered head gate most of the time.  Quite a luxury on an 80 degree day.
This afternoon I sprayed the thistles in the riding ring.  The horses really hate dodging those things.
