Good Fences #12

J had our cattle working pens replaced at the farm we call B.J.'s.  The other pens were at least 25 years old and J had to reinforce multiple sections with panels and gates every time we worked cattle. 
 The new ones are wonderful.
 They even put up some boards so the cows can't play "ring around the chicken coop" anymore.
 And they fixed the corner at the barn.
 Aren't they pretty?
The calves worked well through the chute Saturday.  I guess we'll have to wait and see how the cows do later.

They're beautiful! I'm a little jealous, and we definitely have some fence repair to be done. But it just keeps falling to the bottom of the to-do list. . .

Looks like a great job of rebuilding those fences---hope they last for another 25 years.

I read a book by an autistic woman who designs cattle shoots ---Temple Grandin ---she seemed to be able to see what the cattle would see and determine what would frighten them or make them feel comfortable, as she puts it "thinking in pictures." You've probably heard of her. Someone gave me her book and then I passed it on to a coworker who has an autistic daughter.

Thanks for stopping to view my "Good Fences" post this week.
