Last week Laura took Mike, Chris and I out to Hawley Meadows to replace two broken gates on the corral. The gates fit in the enclosure at either end of the race, which form a narrow corridor to help separate and care for the cattle.
On arriving the moofers wasted no time in giving the new gates their seal of approval by licking the trailer. They were impressed by the design of the gates set in metal frames, which are interchangeable and locked to the posts. Surprisingly after lots of befuddled looks we realised that a square gate frame doesn’t fit between wonky wooden posts. Much to our amusement Chris promptly solved the problem by resting on one post and snapping it off, so we replaced it with a new level post anyway. Everyone did a cracking job and a big thank you to Laura for leading the task.
