    I think you should buy a place in northern Utah and hire me. Then we'd all be happy. I'm getting so sick of finding a job I might try to lease some cows and some ground and be my own boss.

    LOL, maybe you need to pack up the wife and kiddos and move to Nevada. I don't know much about your neck of the woods, but there are plenty of jobs around Elko, Wells.
    I heard the Winecup sold and looking for a whole new crew....

    As long as it wasn't the polyg that bought it I might consider it. I live in the center of a cowboy job wasteland. I've had job offers but none are inside a 50 mile radius of where I live. 50 miles in any direction and I'd be working.

    That sucks Kevin, maybe camping out during the week and coming home for a few nights a week? I know it sucks but if it keeps the lights on.....

    Far as I know the polyg's didn't buy it, but they fired all the old crew and was looking fora new one including a manager which paid decent, but had to supply your own horses, no ranch cavvy. I know 3 guys that have worked that ranch and loved it because how it's layed out. We actually thought about giving this up and trying for the managers position. But it would serve a short term fix but not the long term...as much as I would love to go home..lol

    Family fun.... if that's what you want to call it!!! I've gotten pretty good at getting out of those accidental one leg situations... hehehe, it involves a lot of rope shaking and following in circles around the pen..

    Personally, we only have about 100, but we did them in bunches of about 15. But I rope at several brandings with up to 300 calves at a time
