He got there ok today about dinner time. He had called me last night from Louisiana somewhere, and asked me if I would go get his horse this morning, bring mine, and come down and help them . I just left from down there about dark. He had gotten a boy from down there that has this horse he is riding for Warren. Me and him helped Warren and his grandson sort them all then drive them to their different pastures. Had a few rodeos doing that! The other 4 that drove the other 2 trucks were too tired and sleepy. They took off home when they got unloaded, which is about 10 minutes. Warren and Parker had 3 hours to get home, and they were still there when I left about 6. They should be getting home soon, but I bet he goes straight to bed. He looked bad when he got there today. Tried to get him to lay down in the truck or trailer dressing room, but he wouldn't having no part of that!Regardless of the cost, That's a lot of loaded miles and I just hope he gets back home safely with his load.
When I got there this morning, there were those 5 black designer bulls they gonna use in the front part of the arena, and their mule team, his gaited riding mule, and Scott's 3 gaited horses in the back. They had built a pole barn on one side of it, so me and Bo got some panels and closed it in right quick, then let the horses in there. Then we saddled up and moved the black bulls in to the back part. We opened the gate to the front and let their Cor bull and 4 heifers about to calf in there. Then pushed the 4 heifers into the back pen with the bulls, and let Torro back out. Then when the cows got here, we unloaded them all in the front pen, and the work started. Once we had them all shut in, we commenced to sorting! Some of the heifers were only a year or a little over. We sorted all 25 or so of the heifers out of the arena and back into the pasture. That's where they will be kept with Torro til the end of February, then he goes to Scott's house. Then we drove the rest, along with their 4 Corrs about to calve and the 5 bulls down the road apiece to the opposite side, where Scott has about 500 acres of row crop land fenced in. They have about 50 acres of it that they plant in a dove field, and the rest was cotton this year. Scott said he had some rolls of peanut hay that he would set out and keep an eye on how long it lasted. Come time to plant next spring, they will move that herd back over to the hunting land.
