Season’s end
TOWNER, N.D. — I’m not sure how many calves we’ve roped and branded in our neighborhood in the past month or so. If I did know, I probably wouldn’t say anyway. It’s not polite to ask someone how many cattle they have, and I don’t suppose it would be polite to tell anyone how many calves there are in the neighborhood in case they know how to do division. It was quite a bunch anyway.

When cat food drives coons, and cowboys, crazy
TOWNER, N.D. — Our boys were into a series of books for a while that had titles like “Who Would Win? Tarantula vs. Scorpion,” or, “Who Would Win? Komodo Dragon vs. King Cobra.” They had a lot of animal education, some drama and a showdown. A fitting read for the Taylor boys.

Small motors, big frustrations
TOWNER, N.D. — As I write this, I’m surrounded by the strong scent of gasoline and carburetor cleaner, and enveloped in an aura of frustration. Anyone with a little intuition would correctly identify this malady as a small engine affliction.

The nose knows: Questions and correlations
TOWNER, N.D. — Ranch kids get exposed to a lot of different scents — some good, some not-so-good. Being younger than us old folks, I suppose their sniffers are a little keener, just like their tastebuds are more sensitive than oldsters like me who pour the salt and pepper and Tabasco on our food.

Spring projects meant to be done for ‘a while now’
TOWNER, N.D. — The weather has warmed up considerably in our neighborhood, making it feel like spring. That’s an odd feeling for us in North Dakota as the solstice turns to spring, to have our actual weather match the officially designated season.

Good help needs good equipment
TOWNER, N.D. — I’ve been planning a trip to Boston for a couple of months. Actually, the invitation was for a meeting that was supposed to be held in February when they got their first epic blizzard and it was rescheduled. I think they’ve had an epic blizzard every week out there this winter. It makes me glad to live somewhere with a reputation for nice winters … like North Dakota.

Good timing
TOWNER, N.D. — I once saw a “demotivational” poster that said, “Mistakes — it could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.” Pretty inspirational, huh? There have been times in my 23 years of post-college cattle ranching when I felt my marketing decisions were best used as a warning to others. Kind of a “whatever I do, do the opposite” piece of marketing advice for others.

Hair and gone
TOWNER, N.D. — I’ve always kept my hair pretty short. I was even born with short hair. Well, there was that one period of time, immortalized in my second-grade school photo, when I let my hair grow so long that it went over my ears. Hey, it was the 70s. Wild times.

Speed reading
TOWNER, N.D. — If you’ve read the books of my Cowboy Logic columns, you’ll notice the publisher name is Sandhill Communications. It’s right there on what they call the verso of the title page — publisher, copyright, international standard book number, Library of Congress control number — all pretty impressive stuff.

The rhythm of chore season
TOWNER, N.D. — A friend of ours was visiting for a couple of days recently, so I extended the courtesy that I usually extend to our honored guests — the chance to help with chores. You know, get out in the cold and the wind, cut some twine off the hay bales, carry a few feed buckets.

Small gifts from big, mean cows
TOWNER, N.D. — It’s been quite a year to be in the cattle business. I’m not trying to brag, but I’m sure not complaining. It’s the kind of year where you can update some equipment, pay down some debt, put a little money away and prepare for a day when the markets aren’t so rosy.

Traditions worth keeping
I found myself singing a little lullaby to our 6-year-old daughter the other night, one that my mother used to sing to us as children, and I wondered if anyone else in the world knew the song.
