The cattle were rounded up today thanks to Keith.

They are on holiday at a nearby field in order to give our moorland a rest. Here you can see them in the corral prior to being loaded in the trailer (two at a time).

Hector and MacDuff's transfer was as smooth as silk! As you can see they were keen to explore their new holiday surroundings.

However, it was too good to be true as MacGregor later jumped out of the pen and was swiftly followed by Fraser who attempted to jump the metal panels and knocked the whole thing over! It took another hour and a devious military manoeuvre by Sophie (which included vaulting head first over a fence) to catch and corner the mischievous pair! Finally, all four were reunited and settled into their new field.
