This is it.
I get asked a fair bit what my favorite part of ranching is. Well… this is it.
It’s raising our kids in this way of life, taking them along, and giving them front row seats to hard but rewarding work.
It’s feeding their curiosity and encouraging them to ask questions, try new things, and learn by doing.
It’s instilling a healthy respect for nature and all God’s creation.
It’s showing them how to celebrate new life and how to remember those lost.
It’s letting them see the struggle, then showing them the determination it takes to persevere.
And it’s watching them grow in their love for what we do. Even if our kids choose completely different paths and don’t return to the range, this will always be my favorite part of ranching.
