Oregon poet and sheepman Tom Nichols shares photos from a recent trip to eastern Oregon. He  comments:

I was living up to the Nichols motto of travel, "It takes only a few hours to get there but it will take a few days to get back."


This is one of my favorite photos.



On guard. Prescribed grazing for weed abatement on Albany, Oregon's urban rural fringe.


Grazing Pasja, a hybrid forage brassica.


The historic Shaniko Hotel, once the center of the sheep industry in Central and Eastern Oregon, is now for sale awaiting an entrepreneur and some enterprising sheepherders to bring it back to its glory days.


It's wheat to the horizon in all directions south of Heppner. This sign appears to be all that remains of the livestock industry but these hills still provide winter grazing for many bands of sheep.

 

Tom Nichols has shared other interesting photos in Picture the West:

  sheep photos and a poem...

  photos from Oregon's Rogue Valley...

  photos of lambing sheds in Klamath County, Oregon...

South Dakota cowboy and poet Ken Cook shares 2010 branding photos (by Carl Johnson of Martin, South Dakota).  Ken writes:

Spring brandings in the Dakotas gave way to long days and short nights putting up hay for winter. So for those of us who would rather be horseback than tied hard and fast to a tractor seat...let's revisit our favorite pastime: Brandings with our sons.



Ken and his son Kork, along with Scooter Hodson,
ready to rope escapees from the branding pen


Ken's son Kiel (rhymes with Kyle) sittin' on...his duff


Ken draggin' calves to the fire.


Kiel roping off his horse Dodger.


Old geezer wrestling calves.


Kork and Bay roping calves.



Ken's son Bugs (rhymes with Kelly?) and his horse Pepper.


 

Previously, Ken has shared other interesting Picture the West photos, including:
