  • The storms of summer and the warm weather brings on incredible plant growth, as in both weeds and hay crops. Our hay meadow just across from our front gate has timothy hay that is higher than the fence and the gate as I write this. The seed pods on all of the grasses, and weeds are huge as well. That translates into good winter feed for many animals, and reseeding where it has almost become barren in some places here in our mountains.

  • With the Centennial Cowboys Reunion just one week away, we’re taking a look back at some of the moments from past reunions that made the event such an enduring tradition for more than half a century.

    The first Cowboys Reunion was held in Las Vegas in July 1915. Cowboys from throughout the region gathered in Las Vegas for a rodeo and parade and other events that gave them the opportunity to get reacquainted and socialize. Those reunions continued in one form or another until 1967, although there was a time-out for the Great Depression years.
