Friday's Fences #104 Winter Pasture

It was time to move our bred heifers from some rented land to their winter pasture at J's dad's house.  
 The condition of the fences here continues to amaze me.
 The pens are in pretty rough shape.  J had brought up a load of panels to reinforce everything.  He also made use of the natural barriers in the field, ie. the junked car and broken flat bed trailer.
 Then he turned into the pied piper.
 I had to hide in the truck again so I wouldn't scare the heifers.  Apparently, I don't "walk right".
 J had no trouble getting them up.
 But the gate post broke off and we had to put the tractor into play by holding up the end of the fence next to the cattle trailer.
 And because it's Friday's Fences, just one more view from the other side of the fence.
Two loads with the cattle trailer for the heifers and one trip to bring the bull home and - done.

very cute - and realistic post. :) fences are always breaking down and needing repair, and cattle are ready to go thru them. :)

Yup, fences are great when they are in good repair, but there's always something that needs to be fixed or patched! I like the Pied Piper pictures...so very, very typical of cows!

Because you didn't walk right...LOL Love that line. Looks like J is the piped piper of cattle! Really enjoyed these.

Love the shot of the cattle looking at you.

I have to say, I'm glad my cattle are respectful of fences. We've gone on the honor system occasionally until we could get the fence fixed. :-)
