Snow Day

Remember snow days when you were a kid? It was so much fun! No school; just drinking cocoa and wearing 14 layers of clothes to go run around in the yard.

Well, the RealRanchers of the Green River Valley (and most others I’ve ever been around) do not believe in snow days.

THIS is a snow day for Wyoming ranchers. It means you’re working IN the snow. Not getting OUT of work or school because of the snow.

In order to be the best caretakers of the animals they raise, ranchers have to be on call 24/7/365. Whether it’s gathering the herd in a blizzard, feeding in below-freezing temps, chopping ice on water or doctoring sick animals in the howling wind, the work must go on.

Those animals aren’t going to take a day off from eating or drinking. They’re selfish that way.

Do you have a similar story to tell? Tell us about it in the comments section or at www.facebook.com/realranchers.

  1. I remember Dad getting up even earlier than usual on Christmas Day to feed the cattle before all of us kids got up to see what Santa brought. I also remember him being asleep in the chair right after Christmas dinner!
