Charlie, Kyle, Carson and Jason have been busy working on our new cattle pen. The pen is about 3 times the size of our old one, and designed so we can more easily move cattle in and out. What I found to be the coolest thing about this pen is that the wood harvested and milled right here on the Vista Verde property. The guys spent much of the spring milling the wood, and then the last week building the pen.
Because of our growing horse program, we also included four holding pens for any extra horses that need to be kept in from pasture overnight. This will allow Terry to have a few more horses close to the arena to train.
While the management team spends all day today in our annual spring meetings, the guys are going to enjoy this gorgeous spring day working on finishing the pens, so they are ready for the cows this summer!
