Rangers fought snow drifts and blizzard conditions to get onto cleeve common near cheltenham to feed a herd of galloway cattle.
The animals are happy living on the common - they are a highland breed and can withstand intense cold. But they have to be fed and the ice on their water trough has to be broken.
