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)!
