Week of October 21, 2013

 

Betty K. Rodgers and Ken Rodgers share photographs taken in October, 2013, most at the annual Trailing of the Sheep event in Hailey and Ketchun, Idaho. The event is described as a "cultural event celebrating the arts, history and culture of the West ...  in response to the rapid loss of farms and ranches and the rapid growth in the Wood River Valley. The Festival preserves the stories and colorful history of sheep ranchers and herders, celebrates the rich cultures of the past and present and entertains and educates children, adults and families about the production of local food and fiber that sustain local economies and generations of hard-working families."

Week of October 14, 2013

South Dakota cowboy and writer Deanna Nelson offers some recent photos from her summer and fall, along with captions:

A bunch of our yearling heifers. I was checking for pinkeye and foot rot, and they made it easy for me to look them over.

 

Moving a bunch of cows for Glen and Yvonne Hollenbeck. I borrowed one of their horses and had fun helping.

 

Fall colors.

 

A group of our pairs gathered around a water tank.

 

Sunrise on the river.


 

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

  Branding photos

  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.
