The end of this week will find us bringing our cows home from our BLM allotment. That means switching what cattle we do have here at home around just a bit to make room.
They brought some bulls in from one pasture yesterday and Vernon wanted to bring them up here to our place today. Would I help? Sure! It was an easy side by side adventure trailing them down the Highway. Bravo and I were happy to help.
They swaggered along… bulls don’t get in a rush very often. You better have an open schedule to move them, because being in a rush just won’t work.
Vernon had to scoot next to the fence for a while because some of our neighbor’s bulls wanted to check out our bulls as we went by… No, boys, it ain’t happening.
Bravo and I drove the last bulls by Vernon and then I drove to the lead… it can be a blind hill and I needed to be up front to flag down any oncoming vehicles. Ninety percent of the traffic were neighbors, plus the local lion hunter, so it was nice to have a short chat with friends as they drove slowly past.
Easy day. Easy chore. Easy bulls.
Find me here!

Glad this all went well for you. The bulls certainly seemed to be enjoying their stroll down the highway.
Just a stroll down the road. You can almost see the swagger. How much do they weigh on average?
Love the picture of the bulls on the highway, and the story of the day’s easy chore. Do the bulls ever retaliate or charge towards your dog when they don’t want the pressure to “move it, fellas” ?
just out for a stroll, cause a bull’s gonna go where a bull wants to go!
Do the bulls get along ok when it is just them in the pasture together?
Love that photo of them.
Love the highway line and the bulls.
Love it when a plan comes together.
