This story is from James Greet, written in 1991 about his life as a cowboy in the 1940’s.  It was a nice sunny day, and we enjoyed trailing our cattle. It seemed as though the whole world belonged to us, for we hadn’t seen another soul since very early the day before. Maybe I should point ..read more

This was first posted May 25, 2014. Today we began our AI program.  Well, the hard work part of it at least!  For the next few days, the boys (and Victoria when she shows up) will Artificially Inseminate our heifers.  We’ve done this for a few years now, and continue to be happy enough with ..read more

Yes, snow. And 1.54” of rain. A friend posted they had 17” of snow on the mountain! A fundraiser for some of the kids planning an agricultural tour of northern Italy next year (including Quinlan) was tonight’s entertainment. Liam and Layne Jordan are in Quinlan’s 7th grade class and are quite talented! They’ve played at ..read more

Back to the pipeline construction… The water tank is 13’ across… It is a tire from some huge piece of mining equipment that’s been cut in half. It was quite the sight to see. It had a few inches of water in it from the recent rains adding to its weight. They couldn’t lift it ..read more

Work has continued on the water project… I haven’t been able to help, so these pictures are from Megan. On this day, they set up the storage tank. With excavator and skid steer, they maneuvered it into position. Well, whoops. A little more work, and it’s level and plumbed in. Somehow, I can’t find the ..read more

This story is from James Greet, written in 1991 about his life as a cowboy in the 1940’s.  We checked the cupboard, and there was only two items of food; popcorn, and a small size can of canned milk, nothing else! No salt, or anything. Luckily, there was a supply of stove wood in the cabin ..read more

This was first published May 16, 2014. I came home from work yesterday to see Daniel harrowing the field below my studio.  He needed to go run in the horses for the farrier, so I said I’d take over! Boomer likes to ride along with Daniel… say, “HI”, Boomer! It’s been a while since I’ve ..read more

Mother’s Day Drive included one of my favorite drives. We don’t take it often because it isn’t a main or important drive to keep an eye on our cattle. It is absolutely gorgeous, though… with clouds and light creating different moods. It’s so weird to see this country from this angle. Remember the Bubbles? Rock ..read more
