Howdy! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did. This weekend I had both the honor and the privilege to spend a couple days tagging along with a true American Cowboy. By ‘tag along’, I mean ride with, prepare with, work with (as best a city slicker could), and share a few beers with. Basically, be a cowboy for a day. As Doug said, “it was a good day to be a cowboy”. One thing this city slicker didn’t do was ‘lane a bunch quitter’ so they might have me back? More on that later.
Doug is as authentic a cowboy you can find. I believe his official title is Range Rider. In a couple of weeks I will be sharing his story, along with the story of the ranch he rides. Until then, here are a couple quick facts. The ranch he works was established in 1860. 6 generations of family have worked it since. 3 generations of family are currently working on it. I honestly don’t know where you could find such a rich and historic heritage in modern America? Also, here is a quick fact about Doug. You might think that a true cowboy has a Garth Brooks or Clint Black ringtone for their phone. Not Doug! He’s got Metallica. Not just any Metallica….old school Metallica. That’s just one of the cool things about him. More to come in couple of weeks so stay tuned for his story.
