Or I could just pick them up for you. I'm closer plus they would be going north so it should be cooler.

Now that's a great offer! Guess I'll stay with the night plan tho as I still want to go thru them myself. They have not all been bred to the same bull and I want a say in the choices. Thanks for the offer, Kenny!

I agree with running at night. Bring a cheapo box fan, ext cord and adapter with. If you need to stop for more than a few minutes, put the fan on to at least move the air a bit. FYI, any person in the show cattle world will advise against hauling with a wet hide. There is a reason they always blow cattle dry after washing, and it's not just to train hair. A wet hair coat will actually trap heat and cause a rise in body temp.
