A few photos at the start showing @the-mad-welder 's handiwork (and my rubbish paint work)

Just like my crush, P can take a basic sketch by me for what I want and make it happen

More photos over the coming weeks

So, it's a cattle version of one of these....

...or a mobile catching pen :scratchhead: :scratchhead:

....or both :scratchhead::scratchhead:
It's both.

I suspect it will mainly be a mobile catching pen with calving gate / yoke although it will be used around the village for halter walking up to six and I may choose to move small mobs locally.

Mainly it will save me lifting , carrying, setting up, dismantling, lifting, carting and stacking heavy hurdles in the future

More pictures to follow

I've noticed a few German models have a low down heel bar. Mine will have my gate in frame (two settings : transport and down on ground)
we used round bar as much as we could, make sure there is nothing they can catch themselves on.
I soon found with the cow catcher that it was no good to chase them with it as its surprising how quickly they can stop,

I made a cushion out of a very long plastic bag stuffed with old net wrap to go along the bottom bar at the back.
we have a head gate in that much the same as you have with a gate to get them in it, found it very useful for things like AI and the odd jab, bad eye, whatever

If you're back, could you get a few more close up photos of the steel rack in the back ground that is in the second last photo, I see some of the steel is placed horizontally and some vertically, I'm wondering how they done it.
