Fire Pictures Part 3

If you don't have a horse a pick up works too!

These heifers have probably never seen fire fighters or any human in head to toe yellow suits... but they look to be cooperating and the firemen look to be keeping the girls nice a calm as they work their way out of harms way.

Pretty sure there has been many 4-wheelers used to help gather and move cattle.  They work great when you need to be able to cover a lot of country fast to find cattle.  Don't get me wrong a horse is a great tool but you don't have to worry about filling a 4-wheelers lungs with smoke and they don't get tired and need rest either...

You can see the burned area in the far background as this herd is moved away from the fire line.

You can see how dry the road is as the cattle kick up lots of dust.

Not only has the grass the cattle graze been burned so has many stacks of hay that was stored to feed the cattle when the snow covers the ground this winter.

Big thanks to the Orphan Grain Train for their support

If you are looking for a place to donate, The American Red Cross is a great place to start!!!!
