Jedidiah’s Week 7 Report at the Ladder Ranch

It’s hard to believe that a week has already flown by at the Ladder Ranch! We started out the week by trailing some more cattle to the forest. Most of them went okay, but there were a few that decided to take to the brush! After a lot of hard riding, I just had toContinue reading “Jedidiah’s Week 7 Report at the Ladder Ranch”

Tyler’s Take on the Environmental Stewardship Tour

Tyler Flatt had a very busy week, between keeping things in line at the Ladder Ranch and traveling to Casper for the Environmental Stewardship Tour and presentation of the Leopold Conservation Award, which was awarded to the Garrett Ranch.  This week has been a little slower week than normal. Monday I disked and leveled theContinue reading “Tyler’s Take on the Environmental Stewardship Tour”

More Adventures at the Ladder Ranch for Tyler

Like the past few weeks, this week has been super busy around the ranch. On Monday a few of us went to a pasture to clean it up and brand a few cows that we missed the last time. Tuesday, we docked about 800 more sheep. We were shorthanded this day so it took quiteContinue reading “More Adventures at the Ladder Ranch for Tyler”

Tyler: The All-around Ranch Hand

Intern Tyler Flatt has his hands very full at the Ladder Ranch. He has done a variable of things just in the last week, including (but not limited to) roofing, moving bulls and cows, and spending time with plenty of sheep.  June is one of the busiest months of the year here at the LadderContinue reading “Tyler: The All-around Ranch Hand”

Counting Sheep

Rangeland Intern Samantha McIntosh has been busy at work with all sorts of different animals on the ranch, but the last few weeks have been focused around the Ewes and Lambs. She got to have a mini “vacation” and travel to Sheridan County for the Environmental Stewardship Tour last week. Here is her update:  WhatContinue reading “Counting Sheep”

Dry Season

The days unfold–one warm dry sunny day after the next.  The neighbors gather and talk of only one subject–when will it snow?  We all have tales to tell.  Only two years ago, we were lamenting because we had to start feeding hay two weeks before Thanksgiving.  This year, some of us still have some roughContinue reading “Dry Season”

A Mother’s Grief

Two tiny babes arrived last week.  Their mother, like all mothers, immediately protective.  Nervously nuzzling first one and then the other.  Squatting to let them nurse.  Instinctively knowing what to do. One baby is a little larger and very healthy.   He is already trying to buck and play. The second is small and fragile.  SheContinue reading “A Mother’s Grief”

Shearing Bliss

The average American spends $21 on a haircut. The average sheep spends $0 on a haircut. Mostly because they don’t have hair; they have wool. And they don’t have money. Or the ability to say what style they’d like. Or a ride to the salon. There are a lot of obstacles in the way. So,Continue reading “Shearing Bliss”

Baggs Bloggers

Baggs, Wyo. is one of those tiny communities in Wyoming you have to get to on purpose. It’s not on an interstate route and it’s not on the way to a larger city like Casper or Denver or Billings. You have to want to go there. You need to have a reason.   I was lucky enoughContinue reading “Baggs Bloggers”
