Thanks for the advice, but we live in the desert. I'm lucky to get above 12" a year. We do irrigate, but it's so hot and dry that in a day or so it doesn't look like you watered. And I'm talking about putting down 4"+ in 24 hours.

Wow that’s a lot of water to put down to soak right up. Sandy soil?

The gas company wanted to put cattleguards in my alleys. I made them build their own road. Several people here criticized me over it. Lol.

Our ancestors gave us this. They fought to make it what it is. All we have to do is defend it.

And they will also have to get water from a trough inside the lot while in some pastures and will also have access to that water trough even if they have a secondary water source in the other pastures.

Easier to trick them sometimes. They are caught before they realize it. And also gives them the sense that the lot is not always a “bad” place.

That's the way it should be set up and handled.
