for your cutter,have you ever considered 2 man ranch sorting?you work more like a cutter and you dont have to go into the herd as fast.

Every Friday we go 2 man sorting at an arena down the road from ours. Thats where im teaching him to step to a cow. Sorting is becoming huge and im really hoping that one day penning will be a thing of the past and sorting will be more popular up here in Alberta. I know its already like that down in the states. I personally like sorting WAY more than penning.
