    What's the weather like at your place?

    Big freeze warning here this morning. Almost 5 AM and 32 degrees so I am not too worried. It will no doubt drop some by 6 AM, but not enough for concern. It amazing that yesterday was 20 degrees cooler than the day before. I noticed how poorly the grass looked on Horse Heavens yesterday on a...

    What Old Ranch Tools do you have and use?

    @Big Muddy rancher I always preferred to use a hot iron steel pipe and burn around the buds. Nip it in the buds rather than take the bull by the horns hahaha!

    What Old Ranch Tools do you have and use?

    I love old ranch tools and was cleaning my shed looking for the old fence pliers that I inherited from my dad when I found this tool. As you can see the dogs on this one are about worn off.

    Which Facebook "The Cowboy Way" group are you referring to? There are about 4 groups with the same name and only one is open to the public and the others are private. I was a member for a short time of one of the private groups but left because they claimed it was for real cowboys and cowgirls...

    First generation

    Cattle and fences, that is the basis for cattle ranching. Equipment, horses, dogs, etc., can come later. Learn to build a chute and corrals, learn to dig a ditch with a sharpshooter shovel. Learn to use both a 5 tong manure folk and a 3 tong hayfork. Learn to use fence pliers on all fences and...

    What's the weather like at your place?

    Not unusual for the wind to blow here but predominantly from the south. Last few days it is from the north and cold. Warm days predicted and no rain for a week but the alfalfa is growing amazing for no irrigation. I believe they will get the first cutting without watering. The few that did start...

    Your Favorite Ranch Workhorse Pickup?

    Mine was my 1965 International 4X4. I wish I had kept this old mule. I hauled cattle, Tamarack fence post piled high, hay bales stacked high, etc. What was/is yours?

    Idaho Shag ?

    I have heard nothing but good about the Idaho Shag. A veterinarian friend says the Shag has more natural herding ability than the Border Collie and a much better disposition around humans. They seem to distinguish between heeling cattle and heeling humans, something that many Border Collies...
