Week of May 20, 2013

South Dakota cowboy and writer Deanna Nelson offers some recent photos from a branding at Glen and Yvonne Hollenbeck's remote South Dakota ranch. She introduces them and provides captions:

On the 27th of April, 2013, I had the privilege to attend the branding at Glen and Yvonne Hollenbeck's ranch near Clearfield, South Dakota. I enjoyed helping gather the herd in the morning and they had enough help at the branding, that I was able to capture the day on my camera... Here are a few of my favorites:



Judd Schomp dragging a calf to the fire...



Glen Hollenbeck dragging a calf...



Branding...




The ropers at work...




Waiting for a good shot...


It was a beautiful day, such a nice change from the blizzard  that started the week. Yvonne worked hard in the house, making and serving two big, delicious meals.

Deanna Nelson has shared many of her outstanding photos previously for Picture the West:

  Ranch photos

  Winter photos

  Cattle and other critters

  Ranch images

 

We asked Deanna to tell us something about herself:

Cowboy and writer, transplant from Southern Idaho, via Wyoming, and currently hanging my hat in South Dakota.

I cowboy for a living on a family cow-calf outfit near Murdo, South Dakota. We also pasture yearlings and put up all our own hay during the summer. In my spare time I write and am finishing my first novel. Also, I enjoy quilting and sewing.

Week of May 13, 2013

Rancher, saddlemaker, poet, writer, and songwriter Robert Dennis works his South Dakota ranch with traditional methods.

He has two generations of helpers coming up to keep those traditions alive and he shared photos and some comments about the youngest generation:

While feeding with the team the other day, Sam (5 years old) and Gus (6 years old) went along with their Grampa, me! They are never to young to get them started right, so each took a turn at learning to drive the team... I just might want to slack off some day and will need a couple of good hands who can drive my teams for me..

 

Also, their baby sister, Addy Bear, had to try out my new saddle I  made...some cute girl always wanting to ride one of my saddles...
