Now I'm starting to think that I should've put this thread/pictures in Ranch Photos, but my thread includes farming as well, so........

Anyway, some folks might think of this display as too "childish", but wife and I sure don't. Guess we'd say, "this is the next best thing to owning and running a ranch/farm. Absolutely no work involved!" LOL

Well lots of folks are up their ears in cows and calves and feeding and planting and 100 other tasks. Be patient please. Fun little set up ya have. And your corrals are much easier to clean than mine are 😁

Sorry, sometimes a person just doesn't know. However, I could have put "him or her" and I would've been covered.

Sort of funny, but a former high school student/farmer that lived close by me in Indiana, decided he didn't want a thing to do with farming anymore, so, after high school graduation, and a stint in the Army National Guard, he became a lawyer. His brother now runs the family farm, but it's all crops. All livestock have been sold.

As for me, I still vividly remember my step-dad, while I was in high school, getting me up at 5:30 each morning to feed/water our hogs. Summer months wasn't bad, but those cold/icy/snowy winter months, in northeastern Indiana, is just a memory now and I'm very, very glad of that. However, U.S. Navy hours were much worse than on the farm.

Of course, today, at age 72 and retired, I no longer have to think about work. Thank God!

And, finally, our pen/corral of beef cattle (bulls): two Black Angus, a Red Angus, a Hereford and a Texas Longhorn. Two cowboys on horseback with ropes and one standing with a rope.

You have a lot on display. Glad it gives you pleasure.

No worries about calling me a 'he'. It happens here with people who haven't been on the forum very long.

Thanks for your post, Big Muddy Rancher. I hope I have helped.
And for those who are new, Big Muddy Rancher is BMR to me...😊
He and his wife Tam are just GOOD PEOPLE. We have even had the good fortune to visit them at
their ranch.

Funny, but our family sort of things we are nuts for having this display. Then again, there is no family, mine or my wife's, that have any interest at all in farming, ranching or even rodeo. I, honestly, think that all of them could live fine in downtown Los Angeles or in some other big city.

Actually, my wife had (note the word "had") a girlfriend who told us "I'm a vegetarian and don't care about farmers or ranchers. As far as I'm concerned, America doesn't need them." Now you know why the word "had" is there.

Well, I suppose for some, even on this forum, this display could look sort of weird-to-stupid, for a couple our age. Wonder what my Facebook friends, which are my 1968 high school graduating classmates and none are farmers/ranchers, will think? Some were farmers in high school, as FFA/4-H members, but that ended after graduation.
