O/K a few snaps of the cattle drive which I did not get to ride. Stella when I went to get her was so wound up she had grown to 10 feet tall wide eyed and as tight as a drum. She was left behind, ****. I think she had come into season and was having issues. Not to worry we only moved half of the cattle the rest in two weeks. Stella is also being separated from Kate at present to break the bond they have. Cruel it sounds but its not being herd bound can get dangerous for the rider.
The first photo is the only other male on the cattle run. Our local farrier and traing a new horse. Teaching it to stand when all of the others were leaving, also not to react to stock whip ore ropes being thrown at the cows. The photo of three riders in the distance were the front runners and they got so far ahead they were out of sight of the cows. Now that is a nusance as the cows need a lead and when that has gone it becomes very hard for the back riders to manage as they tend to turn back so Gary had his work cut out for him. New horse and cows. Me, well I was coming up the rear in the truck. Again.
Couple of shots of the land, She who must be obeyed on Kate, trying to hide behind a lamp post. And of course Gary sporting chafs,chaps,leggings I don't think they qualify as tights.
Next cattle drive I will be wearing my chafs,chaps,leggings,tights, what ever and I may post a photo.
Was the lottery struck and is a plain load of women and horses going to decend on our place for the next cattle run. Just need to know so she who must can start getting the accommodation ready. I'll supervise.
Last photo She who must be obeyed and notice the rope reins
