A head catch board breaks as the last of the herd comes through the chute.
The crew disassemble the head catch, removing the broken board. At the same time, dirt that has collected beneath the catch is shoveled out to ensure full range of movement after the head catch is repaired.
While Sean goes off to find a replacement board, the cows and calves are returned to pasture.
Goldie all saddled up waiting in the pens for everyone to return.
