I don't know about that kind of morning drive time. I do know about another kind of drive time. It was what Randy, Jim and I accomplished one morning last week as we "drove" mama cows and their babies from the Peace Creek pasture to the corrals a half mile away.
well-baby checks. Just like we took our own children to the doctor for vaccinations and care, the baby calves have their own appointment to keep them healthy and growing.

I was too busy driving the 4-wheeler to get many photos this year!
Our version of a "traffic jam" came when the cows wanted to detour for a snack on the lush green wheat fields. Since the 4-wheeler accelerator is on the righthand side and my camera also requires a righthand click, it's no wonder there aren't many photos of the process. I was too busy trying to chase mamas and babies and get them moving on their way toward the corrals.
Every time we return babies to their mamas, I mentally sing "Reunited, and it feels so good." Really.
