Driving Ms Bossy

It's that time of year again.
Cattle-moving time.
The Rancher and the Bag Lady helped a neighbour move his cows from his winter feeding area to summer pasture. There were several trailer-loads, but it was a short trip. In fact, the neighbour had debated about driving the cattle (as opposed to trucking the cattle) but decided that the fellow with the freshly-seeded, un-fenced field along the way might not be too happy if the cows decided to visit that new growth.
With the help of a few friends and their stock trailers, the job took no time at all.

Releasing the first load:

C'mon out girls...

The nearly empty corral...

Later in the afternoon, a little sun-shower to finish the day:


The Rancher and the Bag Lady will be moving their own cattle to summer pasture sometime in the near future as well. But not yet.

Okay between your post title and you and Leah's comments, this is the punniest post ever:) I love it! (And so glad the moooovers didn't break anything.) I had to try...

Synchronicity strikes: I couldn't see through the trees, but I could hear cattle being loaded up to the east of me while I was hanging out laundry this morning. There was much complaining from the ones left behind.

That grass looks delicious.

Glad it was a trip with no glitches! I seem to remember a trip a few years back that had a little more moooovie material! Ha! I'm sure the bossies are much happier with all that new grass.

I love that last image and I'm glad to see that your snow is gone.
