Just look at that view.
We've been moving cattle for the past few weeks. On Monday, we moved the final group to the Rattlesnake pasture.
The Monday move was the final piece of the puzzle, getting all the cows, calves and bulls to pasture for the summer.
We never move cattle to the Rattlesnake before May 1. Randy now owns it with his cousin, Don, but the gentlemen's agreement has been in the family for years. This year, we didn't move the cattle until May 7 to give the grass more time to grow after little moisture during the winter and a chilly April.
After the move, the guys got the trailers cleaned out. (I opt out of that job.) The feed truck has been put back in the shed. And the cattle are settling in at their summer vacation spots. Let's hope they eat with just as much fervor as humans at a cruise buffet line.

Au revior to our bovine friends until our next fishing trip or summer 4-wheeler "dates" to the pastures!
