I come from a long lineage of cattle ranchers. Cowboys and cowgirls on both sides, fill up my family history and family stories, so naturally, I married One Cute Cowboy and decided to carry on the tradition.
Last weekend, after spending the winter on corn stalks, our 70 head of black Angus cows finally headed back to the homestead. A ranch that has been in my family for 4 generations.
For me, it’s always nice to see the cattle back at the ranch, enjoying “Home.” Of course, I know it’s good to give the land a break, and we’re very thankful for the farmers that let us lease their fields for the winters, but it’s just nice to see them in the House Pasture once again where soon we will have little babies running around of which we will enjoy and the generations of cattle on the Smith Ranch will carry on!
