Cheviots were bred and developed to be plunked in the border hills and left, and brought in when the lambs were to go to...

    Becoming a ranch hand

    It depends on your finances. Internships typically do not pay well. You would do very well looking at the ranch jobs offered out west, and jump in with both boots on. This world moves very fast these days. Get experience and along the way get your education if you still want to do that. The...

    I am still alive no head stone for me.

    I am so sorry. Must be tough, very tough and I guess you have to do what your heart tells you to. Stay strong, have faith.

    he's a hero :)

    I suppose I should have added more here... This is at a Rodeo in one of the Dakotas.
