Next Step


The babies have fallen behind so we may stop for 20 to 40 minutes and hopefully they will pair up. You must "hold" the cows in place usually around a water source (note the two cowboys in the distanc in the holding pattern). The trick is not to let them walk past the water source and once some of them have had a sip of water they may decide its time to move on and we have to keep holding them in place. There is an art to all this - you can't crowd them and they've got to have enough room to find their babies. As they pair up it gets quieter but of course not all of them pair up. More to follow..

I'm getting a pretty good education here. It will come in handy if I ever find myself on a cattle ranch/drive? I find it very interesting.

This is so interesting! I love it when people explain things like this about their life and work. Even though we have cows this is totally new to me. Thanks

I found your page from threecollie, and I will defiantly be back from now on. I love and admire the kind of work you do, someday I would love to visit a ranch.
