Pate offers hints into sound stockmanship
The Fence Post
As the horse and rider connect, the cattle move easily toward a holding pen. Using some simple moves, the rider sorts off some of the steers into a separate pen. In this cattle demonstration, there is no yelling, no running or jumping at the cattle, and no biting dogs. It is just simple stockmanship between a man and his horse moving some cattle where he wants them to go.
