Default OT. Cattle guards

Ranchers and farmers know about these but for the benefit of city guys:

My parent's neighbors had a couple of the the actual steel
version. Horses walked
right over them if I remember correctly.

This is very helpful. I thought cattle guards were cattle in uniform
with a handgun or rifle standing next to a little guard house. (I guess
if they're cattle, the guard house would have to be bigger than normal.)

I was in the middle of nowhere behind a BMW, iirc,and we were rolling
along at 75 or so. Suddenly the brake lights on the Bimmer go on and the
car rapidly slows with no obstacle in sight. Seems the driver was
braking for a painted cattle guard. Must have been a city slicker.
Around here we don't slow down for real cattle guards.

I do hate walking across the damn things though. It never happened to me
but some people have managed to slip a foot through between the bars.

Fascinating to watch these bullock teams being broken up
and loaded into trucks. They quite literally have very long
runs of just string which is used to keep them from straying
from the path between the cattle yards and the loading
ramp at the back of the trucks. I'll video it next month.

Actually, I already knew about cattle guards. There are a lot of them
in the USA, even in the east, and I've seen them and figured out what
they were, or someone told me first but I would have figured it out.

We never actually said that when I was little, or ever. But I did hear
it when I was 30yo or more.

I'd be interested in that. I don't think Temple Grandin knows about
string.

I bet she does, but it doesn't get used in cattle yards.
only when you need a temporary run between the yards
and the loading ramp with the truck a long way from the yards.

I would've thought there would be at least a few pictures like this

There aren't many in eastern Nebraska. I can't think of any
still around actually.
Guys are just raising crops and no critters in most cases. Ranches
are in north central
Nebraska, in the Sandhills.
Feedlots here but no ranches.

I guess that was part of some kid's game from long ago. One
reason they
were lean and mean back then.

What I shoudl have said is that she doesn't write about string or talk
about it when I've read her or seen video of her.
