We had a beautiful foggy morning to gather in the yearlings.
 J already had Hank in the lot for me last night so I could help.
 He also did some prep work around the barn lot putting up a temporary electric wire.
 The calves were feeling frisky.
This group hasn't had much exposure to the horses.  They were more interested in coming up to us and checking Hank out than they were in being herded to the barn.
 With J on the tractor with a bale of hay and Hank the Wonder Horse doing his thing, we finally got the 83 head going in the right direction.
 Then into the barn lot to be sorted.
J cut out 20 small heifers to haul to some rented land and 25 heifers to maybe breed.  The rest were dewormed, vaccinated and implanted and turned back out to graze.

We find someitmes its easier with yearlings to lead them in then it is to try to chase them. So curious, lol.
