Good Fences #4

It's time to start working the different groups of cattle and begin moving them out to their Spring pastures.  
 E was our help for the day.
 Hank cast a long shadow the morning we got the yearlings up to work.
 J counted to make sure they were all in.  Nothing worse than thinking you're done then seeing one up on the hill that wasn't with the rest of them.
 J acts like he might need some glasses to read the scale on the deworming gun.
 And E manned her position with the ear tags and vaccines.
It wasn't long before we got 23 replacement heifers worked and hauled to their new home for the next few months.

Kid count - 42 ish.

I can identify with J...my arms aren't long enough to read the fine print any more! Or maybe they're making the print smaller??

Oh what sweet fun, and somebody get ready the cows are coming home! I really like the shadow photo, possibly best of all!

Like the share here today...lots of work has to be done I'm sure. But what a healthy environment for your girls.

The shadow shot reminds me of western movies...riding off in the sunset living happily ever after.

Yep! Look like glasses could be the answer. Lots of lovely fences and great that you got the cattle moved.

Looks like a good day working at the ranch. I haven't seen many five plank fences.

Lot of work going on there- and I can relate to the arms not being long enough..I am starting to leave cheaters all over the house because I can't see anything small print any more.

Great shots and great fences. Lotsa hard work too. Laughed out loud at the image of long legged Hank. MB
