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.
