I am excited to bring you my first Cowgirl Feature! 🙂 Yee-Haw for cowgirls, right?! 😉 I can’t really lay claim to that title, since I rarely get horseback, but I sure enjoy my cowgirl friends. I admire them immensely. The ability to cook, keep house, and rope? Yeah. That’s pretty handy, as they say in the ranch world. Here is one such cowgirl. I’m pleased to introduce you to Audra.
2. Where do you live?
3. Job Title?
I am a day worker/ranch hand for several area ranches, & own a few of my own cows.
4. Tell me a little about your job description.
I help area ranchers with all ranch duties, from calving out heifers, to branding, to getting cows out to grass, & home again. I also help AI, I drive a tractor at haying time & help rake or mow usually.
5. What are some things you enjoy doing in your time off?
When I am not helping ranch, I enjoy roping, & riding my horses, entering in ranch horse competitions. I also like to enter the WRRA & WSRRA rodeos all summer. I like to spend as much time in the saddle as I can.
6. What is something you enjoy about your job?
I love all aspects of my job. It is something different everyday. I really enjoy it when I can be horseback everyday & a few of the ranchers I help let me bring my dogs.
7. Did you grow up on a ranch?
I grew up on a ranch in Colorado, my Dad couldn’t get out of the house without when I was little. I have wanted to ranch my whole life & hope that I can keep building my cow herd & have a place of my own.
