There was an old rancher that I worked for last summer and we were sorting some cows ina corral and while there was a lull in teh action I was noticing his horses shoeing job. It was a very nice job. Everything was fitted just right and all the nails were even and it just looked good. I ask him who did the shoeing job and I was suprised when he told me he did! Just a few weeks before he had turned 70. He moves a little slower than he used to but he could still keep up with any man around especially when he's mounted. You can't stop aging but there is no reason you can't keep a positive attitude and do MOST of the things you've done your whole life.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
