Living the Dream

February 25, 2009

Could I manage to do this forever?
Live and work on a ranch?
Live the dream?

I love it. I love the early mornings and hot afternoons. I love the dusty trails, the alpine meadows, and riding horses for a living. I love the barn, the fence fixing, and the pounding of nails. I like being tired, dirty, sweaty, and happy. I even like the plaid workshirts. I love the baseball caps, the barn chores, the bosals, the smell of linament. The sage, the fir, and the pine. Getting hay scratches during feeding. Saddling, riding, working, and living.

Could I really do it?
Be a career wrangler?
A professional cowboy?

If I can swing it, I will. Pesky health insurance. Anyone know of a year round dude ranch that offers health insurance to its wranglers?

I doubt I’ll be written about in the alumni newsletter.
