A gator is the John Deere version of the Army "mule", basically a small utility vehicle, two seats up front and some sort of bed in the back. A more practical version of a 4-wheeler as you can haul stuff in the bed, etc.:

Thanks to all for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the pics.


The friend I was visiting bought 100 of these sheep so we brought them in, sorted off which ones she wanted, ear tagged them and took them to her place.

The next day we wormed them and gathered 350 others in groups from various places, wormed them and returned them to their fields. Again, Mick worked a pretty good part of a day. Mick was bred for a hard day's work and you can really appreciate a dog like that in situations like the one in the pictures.

Thanks J&Co and Julie, that's exactly what I pictured a Gator to be. We use a mule at work for Parking Enforcement, so I am familar with those.

Holy crap! Makes my heart go pit-a-pat to see that many sheep all together.
When was this? On your trip out west last year?
Jealous. Insanely jealous.
