Winter Pasture

Yesterday was the day to move the cattle off of some rented land.  We split them into 2 groups with 5 cows coming to the house and 13 up the road to our other farm. 
The working pens here leave a lot to be desired but with J's corral panel reinforcements everything worked OK. 
Can't forget the obligatory squirt of dewormer for the lice. 
We then have to bring the cattle through the corner of the landlord's yard, 
then hope they turn the right way to go down the gravel road and not out toward the main road.  I wasn't looking forward to having to climb the fence to head them off if they went the wrong way. 
There was a little snacking along the way.   A lot of the snow of south facing slopes has melted but we still have a good covering elsewhere. 
Now there is one less stop J has to make on his daily feeding schedule.
