My wife says she found a leather envelope in the woods and gave it to me.

I couldn't read it,

Should I leave?

Sincerely NoClue

The OP reminds me of hauling hay for my grandfather BY HAND for two cents a bale in the mid sixties. The bales were smaller, but there were more of them. We used a tractor, a wagon and a hay elevator...well, besides arms, legs and backs.

Now THAT is some HARD work!!

I used to do that in WY as a kid. Just the mere sight of a small bale makes my hands and back hurt! If I see a truckload, I wanna' go take a nap!! We didn't have an elevator though, so we had to stairstep the stack and climb up. Those green bales weighed about 85lbs. We use equipment to move the big bales now. They're 750 lbs each.

You wanna' come out and be a hand on this ranch???

By all means...just send me your particulars and I'm sure we can work something out!! Seriously!!

I'm not kidding. We're always looking for a 'hand'.

Can you ride fence (i.e. fix fence), handle cows, bulls...or just feed?

If so...you're hired!

ETA...It's only a few "miles" of fence. Sometimes the radios work, sometimes they don't. The snow gets deep sometimes, but the 4-wheeler gets though it. Chow is good. Work is hard, but the rack is solid.



You make it sound so hard. LMAO

We live on a farm as well. Ain't no way in Heck you can drive a 4 wheeler around here once winter hits.

Try WALKING the fenceline in 4 feet of snow. Oh, don't forget to haul all the gear for repairs around in a sled. Even Snowmobiles won't handle the depth of snow we get. LOL

An Airstream in the field on this property would become a snowbank in about 6 hours.

You should know by now that FCD has it harder, bigger and better than everyone else!

Darn you 😉😉

Actually, FCD is a farmer/rancher. He lives out in the middle of nowhere, so when he does something and feels the need to celebrate a job well done, he either talks about it to the tumbleweeds (Eastern CO, I think), or he comes here and celebrates to us.

Given that my grandfather farmed and my cousins still do, they deserve credit for a hard job done well.

Yup, we still do it that way.

FCD has it easy.

Teff! Wow... would love to find a good source of (preferably organic) Teff...

Do you run a cow-calf operation, or just steers???

Big difference.

Or...do you even have cows?

Interested in your response.

Love to hear about your breeding operation...AI or herd bull?

We're just a small operation, relatively speaking...love to hear about your operation.

Oh...and sorry for posting too much, sometimes things get slow, in between the crazy, so I post. Love to hear your stories!!

When this well finally dries up I'll be submitting my credentials (DB won't hire me.) Then I can follow in your footsteps and be an ex-techie cowboy and understand all your threads.

*sigh* the Lord works in mysterious ways

I was just ribbing ya a bit.


We have a mixed herd of Bison. Similar, but completely different considerations..I'll post some pics when I get a chance.

No need to be sorry about posting, I like your posts. You should have been a Writer.

WOnderful!!!!

I pray I can get back to the woods before I die. Id even settle for non woods country setting. LOL! Feel free to adopt me. I work like a horse... and complain like a mule. I am totally serious when I say I think the city-ish life is killing me. If you ever organize a post apocalyptic commune of like minded weirdos.. let me know.
