Ranch fence lines

We own a ranch,7 years ago our neighbor asked us if we could move our fence line so that she can access some of here land more easily which would help her save money working her cattle,In exchange she let us move our fence on another part of the ranch so we could graze more cattle,She was the biggest benificary,which we did not mind.

We did inform her that the land was never going to be forsale,And that if she sold her property or if we had problems with either her or someone that she may sublease to then we would immediatly restore the fence line back to its rightful line.And we also told her that we would continue to pay all the property taxes which we did.

Now she has recently sold her ranch,She did not disclose to the new owners about this agreement nor did she tell us about the sale.

We are currently putting our fences back,My question is Do we have to put the fence line back on the other part of the property that we gained or do we get to keep it do to perscriptive rights?
