    It's tricky.... so they tell me. :augie

    It got to where the vet was charging so much, DIY to the rescue, still had to source the semen for the breed and characteristics desired. (oh gosh, that sounds so racist now!) His "take rate" (my term) wasn't what he'd hoped for so he switched to renting bulls. Then he bought a specific bull, then another. He and my mom would bring certain heifers in with the bull they wanted to control herd genetics and kept detailed records. They would get a premium for their calves when they sold them off to be fed out.

    I wish I could find our real old photo of us running Pack trips ,They are still in a box somewhere..

    I first met Don back in '75 in PA. When he drove up to my folks farm ,
    to tell us about his white GS will come by, begging for food and to just tell her "GO HOME" ..
    Don use to work at my folks place ,back in the mid to late 60's ; before the folks bought it in late '74
    We started dating back in '80....

    WE have always worked and played together through out these years. (not in order)
    From being : race horse trainers, jockey ,bartender, Wranglers ,riding lessons, landscapers, fencing co., snowplowers n' salt n' sanders for developments . Pack trip guides, repo race horse saviors , Equine retirement home ,horse breeders, cattle breeders ,retail western wear, food cart, bike sales, farmers...
    I'm sure I'm missing something ..
    Wow we have known each other for 43 yrs !

    It's been a hell of an adventure , with many highs and lows ... And it's not over yet ...

    I hope you enjoyed the little peek in to our life...

    Congratulations! Good to see that there's more of us long-termers than the media wants to make young people believe these days ;-)
    The longer the better, that's what we reckon - anyway, who'd wanna repeat all that training again, eh? hehe ;-)
    I met the love of my life when she was 15, I was 17 .... back in 1979. She fell in love with me, motorbikes, traveling & moving around the world and so on ... Luckily we managed to smoothen each others thorns during the early years, which made the latter ones sooo much more enjoyable.
    Wishing you all the best ...
