The Modern Cattle Drive
Cow dust storm
Truck to the left pushing the cows
Horse in trailer along for the ride
Create dust storm. Push cows with truck pulling horse in trailer. I thought this was funny because the horse was along just in case. It was a small move, only about 100 head of cattle. The local rancher was moving the cows to a different pasture that had more feed and was close by. Most of the move was over dusty ranch roads where a truck could be easily used instead of a horse or ATVs (All Terrain Vehicle), also known as 4-wheelers.
