Jeremy's Treibewagen

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
Small herds please Jeremy, I’m allergic to that other foreign word .

Is it me or does the draw bar look too short? Looks like you can’t turn very tight without fouling the rear tractor wheels. Might just be angle of photo.
The drawbar is extendable, set short at the moment so I can get the shed door shut!
Final length to be confirmed and excess trimmed off when Jeremy gets here with his tractor and has a shunt around with it.

As P just said , the drawbar is left long until I bring my tractor. I've a bale trailer with fixed jack and can still tow it with my quick hitch A-frame on the links raised high and want to do the same with this one

Is there an English name for this?

Perhaps a Perkins wagon?

Not a bad idea though I wonder how difficult it will be to get cattle into it the second time, heel jamming prevention will be key for moving them about anywhere.

I move a lot of cattle back and forth across a road and it is a lengthy PITA with the Ifor 3 cows at a time, I am watching with interest.
Think droving wagon would be a pretty close translation.

I’m not allergic to treibewagen that’s a good name , as for calling herds and flocks mobs im
Sorry but it makes me cringe 😬 😂

Fair enough about the cringe, but it’s about as English a word as you can get - been used here since the Middle Ages, (although does have origin in Latin so technically it is foreign if you back far enough).

It is but it’s mainly a kiwi term when referring flocks and herds , British terminology is flocks and herds as you all know so why use terminology of new Zealand ? Sends a cold shiver down my spine urgh !
