Jedidiah remains productive with the Ladder Ranch

We had another productive week here at the Ladder Ranch!! We started out by branding another little bunch near the home ranch.

Mary’s week of cowboying and cleaning up

This week at Perry Cattle Co., I got to spend a lot of time in the saddle, and I got to clean the barn and some of the equipment.

Aidan’s week of fencing

This week I learned how to take down fence. Monday I took down quite a bit of fence, and I have to say, this is not the kind of work you want to be tall for. By the end of the day I felt like an old man walking around with a hunch back! TheContinue reading “Aidan’s week of fencing”

Mary Marsh begins work with Perry Cattle Company

Feeders, fences, and dams. This week at Perry Cattle Company, I got to spend a lot of time in the saddle, moved feeders and helped get equipment ready for cutting hay.

Aidan’s unforgettable week with the Kane’s

This week, was extremely exciting. I went to my first ever branding, and I have to say, it was hard work, yet maybe one of the most entertaining things I have ever done. Learning how to trip the calf was very interesting and especially since these calves were on the larger size, timing was absolutelyContinue reading “Aidan’s unforgettable week with the Kane’s”
