    The old guy who works the cows in the picture tells me to call him a "Cow Handler"

    He's not the rancher and doesn't own the cows, So can't call him a Rancher.

    He's no longer a boy, so Cowboy doesn't fit.

    His profession 12 months a year is a hired hand to take care of cattle on open ranges. So cow handler it is.

    A funny story. This old guy rode into the trail head one afternoon. We were all standing around looking at a strange trailer that was unloading a couple of camels. Where these folks got camels, Who knows but they were out for a ride. When I saw them getting unloaded I took my horses over for a learning session. It never hurts to expose your horse to strange looking/smelling creatures.
    Any way this old cow handler came by and saw those camels and said. "Boy am I glad I saw them. I would have notices those strange hoof prints on the trail and been wondering what creature was stalking the hills all summer"

    Cow Handler

    There are a whole lot of names that apply to the occupation. Most are pretty picturesque.

    The camels story is FUNNY! I know how that feller feels. I'd be wigging out trying to figure out what they were, and I've seen camel tracks before.

    I usually make one trip a winter down to Dimple Dell just as change of pace from riding out on Antelope Island. I'm not a big fan of having to tow a trailer through all the traffic on 106th South.

    Antelope Island is only 20minutes from the house and very little traffic.

    In the Summer I go up into Ogden Valley. Snow Basin, Middle Fork, Ben Lomand, Centenial trail for evening rides. Again maybe 20-30 minutes from house.

    Saturdays I head up to Strawberry or the Uintas.

    Our barn is one of the many on 106th all we have to do is cross the street and we are there.
