Texas rancher Nancey Kyle Peebles shares photos of her family. Some of the photos were used on her friend Jean Prescott's latest CD, Traditions. Some of the photos were taken by Western artist Tyler Crow and Cecilia Steele as noted, with captions by Nancey Kyle Peebles.

Rance and PeeWee Peebles,
South of Marathon, Texas  

 

These next three photos were were taken during the McIvor ranch works, in the Tesnus country, by Cecilia Steele. She also was on their crew that day. We believe in strong family heritage and good friends, working side by side.

Pictured in this photo is our family working together. I (Kyle Peebles) am running the shots and dehorning; my husband (PeeWee) is castrating; our two oldest sons are helping flank/mug-Gage(12) and Rance (10). A very dear friend, Shiloh Coleman, is ear marking. Scott McIvor is running the branding iron with the U up U down, family brand.

A dear friend of the boys and the family, Owen (mugging) is pictured with Rance
(flanking) during the branding process.  


This picture below was taken in Fort Stockton, during the McIvor spring works in 2011. It was a very hard year that year. We officially called it the "Drought Works" due to the lack of rain and the harsh conditions. (I recall the cowboys killing a few really big rattle snakes in the pens prior to working!)

Pictured is Scott McIvor (Boss Man, only 2nd to the Boss lady Julie McIvor).  The McIvor's have been a part of our lives for a very long time, and completely in our lives since our youngest son, Levens was born. They are not just our bossesówe are family! Only striving to carry on the 'Traditions' through our Western heritage. Our son, Rance is pictured holding the calf along with Manny Dutchover. Scott is putting the ranch ear mark on the calf's ear.

This picture below is very dear to my heart. This is our youngest son, Levens, at 3 years old. He and a little friend of his named Mia are playing and roping an old nanny goat in a round pen. This was such a great moment to watch what ranch kids do best-play outside and rope! Not play video games!

April 22, 2014

Cowgirl and poet Jessica Hedges lives near Paisley, Oregon, with her husband Sam, who buckaroos full time. Her bio tells, "She spent most of her childhood on a cattle and hay operation in northeastern Nevada, about an hour west of Elko. It was here that she learned about the cattle, the land, and the people of the Great Basin..."

She shares some recent branding photos from the ZX Ranch, with captions:

The ZX Ranch in Paisley, Oregon was started in December of 1900. It has changed hands over the years, but is currently owned by JR Simplot and is the largest cattle producer in the state of Oregon.

When calves are young, a heels only branding can be viewed as a less stressful method for horses and calves alike. This is also less man power at the fire when you are not moving a neck rope to the front feet.


 

Jimmy Van Belle is preparing for a "turn over" shot on a ZX bred roan, Bert.
 




Tyler Gebauer is starts many of the colts here on the ZX. He is pictured here on an outside horse.
 


 


Depending on the number of calves, brandings can last for hours. Many ranch moms pack up the kids with plenty of snacks and make a day of it. It's not uncommon to find small children stashed in pickup beds or other safe areas just in case of a wreck.
