Over the River

The river running through our land is thankfully crossed on our property line by a nice walled goverment bridge which we use when moving stock from one side to the other. When we had cattle it involved more muscle power as steel panels were needeed to block off the road and steer the cattle. Now with sheep we find it so much easier and when they have done it once they know there is fresh pasture on the other side as the sequence of photos show. It was all I could do to stay ahead of them and they still beat me to the far side of the bridge. Note Rosa our guardian dog leads the way and is ahead in the pasture as well. We cross the river about eight times a year and it only takes a few minutes so we rarely hold up the traffic.
