So, tonight I rode down our road (training the two dogs to ride in the UTV, which they love).
I was cruising down the road and after a bit this other neighbor started following us on his ATV.
Our ranch is established (legally), we're the only ones on our property. The next-door neighbors to me are 7 miles away, the largest land owners in
Colorado and Wyoming (and I'm from Wyoming).
Last moth I told the story of our bull, Jack, getting out into one of the National Western Stockshow group of cattle. It was crazy. Blew a tire on
my stock trailer, and had to herd that bull, uphill, for more than 3 miles. That old ranch boss was on me the whole time...he never thought we could
separate those 2 year old girls out of our bull, and I'm here to tell you we ( my wife and I) risked our lives doing it! She was on foot, and I was
on the ATV.
Took several hours to get him home (the bull, Jack). He was in Heaven, girls and all! Separating animals like this in the field is VERY difficult.
BUT...the bottom line is...cowboy's NEVER quit...and we didn't. Even if it took all day long.
This guy came out and saw our truck, blown tire, keys in the ignition. We were herding cattle nearly two miles away already.
And then it started to rain...but you keep going. Push Jack up against the fence and then move him, never let his nose turn around to the girls!
Keep pushing! Hard.
