Alley Work.......


I do like it when I get to cut in the alley. I usually NEVER get to cut the cows from the calves that role is reserved for jefe or the really experienced cowboys but when we are just working cows sometimes I get to work the alley. Though Dudley doesn't particularly like this work I believe it is just outright fun. I cut a certain number of cows usually about four, run them down the alley and shut a gate behind them. That way the cows are ready to be run through the shoot for vaccinations, teeth checks etc. It makes the overall process much more efficient.

Fun! Someone's got to do it, might as well be someone who loves it and is good at it, eh? ;)

Looks like fun. We have been invited to run the cows through the alleys for a local roping. I might give it a try

At least it gives the other cowboy a chance to let someone else do the lovely job once in awhile.
