Maybe you need a "bull" horn to call them, then lead them where you want them to go.  Either that or install some BIG air horns on the Jeep to "blow" them in the direction you want them to travel.  I know that my neighbor's cows move away quickly when I use my air horns and they're blocking the road.

As I am the one dealing with the cows usually, we've come to some mutually agreeable understandings -- one of which is that we don't listen to the boys. A "bull" horn would only cause them to roll their eyes and head the other way. I completely sympathize with this attitude.

This attached video is and example of how my Jeep gets used on a daily basis. My brother and I learned how to use our Jeeps and how to drive our Jeeps from our dad. He was a bulldozer operator and used his Jeep with a winch to help put the tracks on after repairing the undercarriage as an example of the many things he used his Jeep for. There is a photo of that Jeep during hunting season in Jeep photos, and that is also the vehicle that I learned to drive in at the age of

Loaded up the trailer and went to Summit to swap out tires. I had new 7.00-16 and decided to remain with the stock 6.00-16. Then did some clean up around the house.

Spring time, enough snow gone to get to my tamarack cash.
Only my Jeep can get in and out, about 10 trips to a cord, 3 cords brought in.

Isn’t it interesting, only stock looking jeeps, low suspension, small tires are working jeeps.
I guess when they grow up there to good to work anymore.

Jeep about,
You need to find a Bantam or M416 trailer for your firewood hauling and other project. Great little trailers and they come in handy. Plus the looks you get from people can be priceless.
 
I finally swapped out my wheels and hauled the old ones over to the storage garage. About 400 pounds loaded in the trailer.

If this guy were closer, I would have taken a look at what he had. It was just too far. He has been listing them for a while. Maybe you can get a good deal.
 
Make sure you get one with a lunette
 
I found mine in Northern California with no lunette. I luckily found one in Canada for $200. Some wanted $400 for one.

Ship of Theseus - As years go by wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new. After a century, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?

not a real lizard. Flea market find for $1. He will probably show up in various locations around here for years before someone shoots him.

The lizard needs to show up somewhere in any pic you post from now on.  You can have a "where's the lizard?" contest with every pic!  LOL
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable
