Changes Going on Over Here
I love blogging.  I LOVE it!  And I also hate it...  Because as much as I love writing and telling stories and my photography... I hate sitting at the computer.  And it is always pulling my chain.  The days between posts can slip by so fast and then I feel ...

The Curlew Cattle Association: A History of Belonging
A few months ago I was asked to write a story for the Line Rider, a
magazine published by the Idaho Cattle Association.  The story they
asked me to write was a little closer to home than most of my other

Following the Roads Across the Range
90% of the time I head out on the range to brand, I drive out myself after the crew of cowboys has left.  I don't believe in waking babies if I can help it.  Well rested babies are happy babies and happy babies make for happy mommas.  And everyone knows tha...

Pausing for Perspective
I love my life.  I really do.  Its amazing how much joy and satisfaction I find in what we do.  I get to watch my kids learn and grow and fail and succeed.  They get to watch their dad work and see what it means to have responsibilities and carry them out. ...

Dinner For a Rancher
The other night I made dinner and, as our life goes about now, The Rancher had to head out just as I was putting it on the table.  I fed the kids and myself a tasty dinner of grilled steaks, fresh pineapple, salad, and green beans.  Everything I love and my...

Momma-Cow Turned Momma Bear
Before we moved to the family ranch, we worked our way through college at few different ranches.  Of course nothing compares to working your OWN ground or your OWN cows, but we still had some great times and some great memories on the operations we were a p...

Its All About a Bunch of Bull
Bull sale season is coming to a close.  It ends just as fast as it comes.  I kind of have a love hate relationship with Bull Sale season.  I love it when I get a chance to go, but I hate it when I get left behind.  And unfortunately, with all of my other OT...
