Reflections........


People don't realize that a lot of ranch work does not involve riding. This time of year here your are lucky if you get to work on horseback twice a week. The rest of time is spent checking and cleaning waterers, putting out mineral, checking fences, starting generators, pulling windmills, airing tires and fixing flats, etc.

It's not easy, but it's better than sitting in an office.I'd rather work outside any time.

I think people have only the fairy tale ideas of what farm or ranch life is really like! It maybe one of the most satisfying ways of life but it is a hard and never ending job that is 7 days a week not just 5!

We are blessed to only run yearlings... Very little work to do in the winter! As a result we have several other stay-at-home jobs we do.

We have not heard from Dudley in a long time. Since winter is setting in maybe he will have time to let us know how he is.
