Hey Heartland fans!  

Previously, on Heartland, the family (and guest!) found themselves participating in a cattle drive after the crew Jack hired to do it had cancelled. There was drama and a few pitfalls but, onscreen, it all worked exactly the way it was supposed to for the story to play out.

How did the cast and crew make it all happen?  Take a look at this Heartland mini-doc about the cattle drive for a look behind the scenes:
