We had a fun day traveling a hundred miles to the ranch of Peach Blossom's sister and her husband. There were seventeen of us at the dinner table. The turkey with all the trimmings tasted mighty good. Thankfulness was in all of our hearts.

Fine looking cattlemen, Soapweed.

Couldn't help but notice you are a bigger statured person than the others.

Nice pictures. Thanks again for sharing.
Great looking cooks too. I bet you had a fine Thanksgiving meal.

"Boys doing boy things". Great picture caption. You are very good at that. And I can tell you from working at a newspaper sometimes it is a real chore, putting a good caption under a picture. You really have a knack for it.

Where were you exactly? I mean, were you still in Nebraska?
If not, where? Looks like nice cattle country.

We were still in Cherry County, south of Valentine, in some of the best cattle country in the world. These folks run a top-notch ranch, and have an outstanding herd of Angus cattle. They are selling all of their cows that are coming three and older at the Valentine Livestock Auction on December 15th. They are keeping a terrific set of bred heifers, and all of the calves born in 2005.

Yep, DOC, the cattle from this ranch have way better than normal EPD's. They are very functional rancher-type cattle with good structure, muscle, and eye appeal. Anyone would be proud to own them. A lot of AIing to top bulls has been done on these cows through the years.
