Good Fences #96

Last week was our annual cattle drive moving the cows from the land we rent across the road back to our farm.
 J had already done all the preliminary work so me and E just had to show up.

 The cattle pens here aren't the best so J reinforces them with corral panels.
 We actually took 1/2 to our farm at the house and the other 1/2 a mile further up the road to another farm.
 But first it was down the chute,
through the yard,
 then down the long and winding road.
 The cows took advantage of the trip to do a little grazing along the way.

 E was on had to stop traffic (of which there was none) and turn the cows into our field.
 J magically reappeared here to turn them up the hill to a different field.
 Now they are safely ensconced behind our 6000 feet of new line fence.
Just a little bit of work to cross the road.

Whew! Glad this went well. Much more involved then when we have to move a herd to another pasture!

That was a fun little journey. - Nice fences along the way and apparently good grass for those cows too. Glad it went smoothly.
