Linda Pierson ranches with her husband of 35 years in southern Alberta. She shares some recent branding photos from Alberta and Saskatchewan, and comments:

We run both commercial and purebred Hereford cattle and still use horses for all our cattle work. I just like to preserve our way of life as much as I can before it disappears on a quad somewhere in the future.

Dianetribitt2007.jpg (18039 bytes)

Diane Tribitt, Minnesota rancher, poet, and member of the Western Music Association Board of Directors shares a photo of "Bermuda Bay." She writes:

We titled this photo "Cow Horse" after an orphaned calf figured my horse, Bermuda, was his momma!

All of my Bay horses are named after bays. Bermuda Bay, 33 years old, is shown with another semi-retiree, Diane's Dublin Bay (D-Dub). I always joke that Bermuda is like a Cabbage Patch Doll: so ugly he's cute. He came out of Mexico as a ten-year old, carried me many miles over the years, and probably even saved me a time or two.

My late husband used him as a rodeo "pick-up horse," the horse that took the hit when Randy died.

Randy Tribitt was killed in the Elko River Rodeo in 2004; find Diane Tribitt's poems, Tribute to a Cowboy" and "Bermuda Bay" in our feature here.

"Lunch"

On lunch break from driving cows. Couldn't have a prettier spot than a bunch of fall aspens. While we eat our lunch the horses get to graze as well.

"Dirty Joke"

Wanna hear a dirty joke?? The white horse ran through the mud...I know, it's pretty bad, but it was my favorite joke when I was 5! I couldn't help but think of that joke when I snapped this picture of the draft horses running in. They are happy horses as they know they are about to head to the summer pastures on the mountain. Won't see them again until they are brought in to get ready to work for the winter!

"For Her Love"

Our stud "Kings Golden Beaver" aka "Beaver" has always loved our daughter. He has always cuddled her and been very careful not to step on her or hurt her ever since she was old enough to walk. Pretty amazing watching how soft he can be!

"Staple Girl"

Watching my daughter and my husband work together brought back lots of memories of doing the same with my Dad. I thought others would have the same memories and decided to jot down a few sentences about it to go with.

"Pullin' Slack"

No rain for weeks until we decide to brand. No one was complaining though. After the calves dried out we got to work, Lucas pullin' slack on the first calf to the fire.

"You Did Good"

After dragging calves to the fire the whole branding, this cowboy is giving his horse some much deserved lovin' a big fat "You Did Good, son!"

"The Cowboy & the Calf"

My husband Mike helping out a calf that wasn't quite getting enough milk from momma cow.

"Happy Dog"

"Earl the Girl" getting some good lovin' after a hard days work. We would have it much harder in the mountains without good cattle dogs. For every mile we travel they travel two!

Brianna Badure shares photos from the Badure Ranch in southern South Dakota, with her comments. She writes:

I spend my summers and winter breaks from college at my grandfather's place, which I was raised on.  I took this while I was checking heifers this winter.


In this picture, the rider is saddlemaker Baxter Badure, my father, moving pairs in western Melette county south of Belvidere this last fall.

Find more about Baxter Badure and the Badure ranch at the My Ranching Life blog, whose author is a neighboring rancher and photographer. See the posts "True American Original" and others, here and here.

Montana singer, songwriter, musician, storyteller, writer, radio host, auctioneer, Model T authority, and fiddle expert Stan Howe shares photos from rural Montana and comments:

I made a trip to Wolf Point on business and stopped in the tiny hamlet of Dodson and took a couple pictures of the only bar in town. Open Friday and Saturday nights and occasionally other times. Always open during the Phillips County Rodeo.

The county seat is Malta but the county fair and rodeo is in Dodson. The town comes alive with horse trailers, motor homes, teepees, tents, cowboys, cowgirls, Indian dancers and drummers and lots of country music for about a week every year, then goes back to being asleep until the next year...If you had a nickel for every fight there has been in the middle of this street you could retire in luxury.

They rebuilt the highway through town a couple months ago and put in a curb. Now you have to go up three steps to the street and down three to the bar. Sure wish I'd have taken some pictures before the curb and gutter went in. Way too modern for Dodson.

This is a REAL Montana bar, not one of those "Texas Steakhouse kind of places." Sign behind the bar:  Pay your tab or find someplace else to drink. No free beer tomorrow, either.

Stan Howe has contributed other interesting photos to Picture the West:
