Wordless Wednesday: Varmints

This blog is by my Dad. He is very proud of this picture. What he didn’t wanted shared was the fact he got attacked by the Mama raccoon and both he and his dogs had to hide in the truck like nancy girls. Notice this is a live trap. The raccoons are moved away from the ranch, further up into the mountains.

My “Factory Farm”

[

Our summer ranch. The oats I planted and farmed with no sprays, and a damn good dog.

The cattle truck we use to move the cattle in between the two ranches. The cattle spend the summer in the mountains and the winter in the valley. That way they get two springs, avoid the valley summer heat and the mountain winter snow. And our ground gets break from the cattle – it’s empty 6 months out of the year.
