Andy and Jim Nelson




Andy and Jim Nelson were born and raised in the small southern Idaho town of Oakley, where they were taught the way of the cowboy by one of the last great horsemen, their father Jim. They followed their Dad all over the great basin of southern Idaho, northern Utah, and northern Nevada learning how to shoe horses, and although they no longer shoe horses for a living, the brothers have had the farrier way of life forever branded on their hides. Of course, not to forget the person who really taught them how to be gentlemen and gave them their uncommon sense of responsibility, a former emergency room nurse, their mother Barbara.

The brothers spend their free time announcing rodeos, performing on the Cowboy Poetry circuit, doing play by play for the local high school sports teams on KPIN in Pinedale, and goofing off with their families.

Jim lives in Cora, Wyoming with his wife Tina and their four children and together with his father-in-law Dick, they live on the Flying U ranch and raise cattle, quarter horses, and a llama named "Tony."

Andy lives just twenty miles south of Jim outside of Pinedale, Wyoming here he and his wife Jaclyn live on a small acreage and raise horses and kids (neither of which make them any money)!
