Location: I work on the T/A Cattle Co. in Medicine Bow, ZigZag Horse Training in Arlington, and Rockin’ EZ Cattle Co. in Rock River, Wyoming.
What do you do for a living? Cowboy.
What is your job description? Well, I’m always breaking and training colts. Starting them and getting them trained up. Then of course its a nonstop battle with doctoring. Some years you fight pink eye and foot rot; others years you gotta fight selenium poisoning. And of course pneumonia – last year it was lichen poisoning.
What is something you dislike about your job? Well, there’s not much I don’t enjoy about it. I don’t like fencing, but I know its needed.
What are some things you enjoy about your job? Gotta love the green up of spring and seeing young healthy calves running around. But my favorite is breaking a colt and training a new pup and being able to see the progress you’ve made in real time.
What do you do in your spare time? If I get spare time, I like to read a lot, to get out of the every day world and into another time or place. I like work on my leather work or even play video games. But lately I’ve finally been taking lessons learning how to dance some.
