Re: Stock pens

Mike the photo sounds intriquing. It is possible the Turbine was simply
dropping off mty's for loading the next day, esp if it was a westbound.

As to capacity, it was common at western pens to have ranchers drive the
cattle to location, hold them on the near by grasslands via horses and
riders, and load multiple cars, one at a time. No need for large capacity
pens or multiple chutes at a location that loaded once or twice a year. Cars
would be dropped off in advance

By the way it is minus 9 this morning, windchill a minus 34 up here in NW
Iowa. And folks thought the temps at Cocoa Beach were brisk.
