Mandy Hutchison's Cow Track

I’ve been pretty excited about this next feature. It’s taken some coaxing, but she did it. Mandy is my sister. She is married to my oldest bother, and is the real cowgirl around here- even if I did grow up on the farm. I cringe to tell this, but I really never wanted to get cold and dirty at the same time. Throw in wet, and I was off to the house. I know I’m a light weight, but Mandy isn’t. She is very involved with her boys and showing cattle. As many of you know, none of it is for the weak or faint at heart. So many of you ladies are going to love getting to read about her and her boys, and their adventures in showing and agriculture. I’m going to enjoy reading and following them too, they are always up to something. I have some pretty amazing nephews, who are kept in line with a pretty amazing mother- I’m not sure what my brother does? I think Mandy keeps him in line and takes care of him tooJ She runs a pretty tight ship. Thanks Many!

Blogging from http://cowtrack.blogspot.com

I'm a mother of 2 and wife to a 5th generation rancher living on a working cattle ranch in NW Oklahoma. We live on the original 160 acres that my husband's great great grandfather traded a shotgun and $50 for during the Oklahoma land run. Our roots do run deep. Every branch of our boys' family tree comes from a farming and ranching background. With so much false information circulating our goal is to educate the consumers about agriculture. To let you know what we do and why we do it.

Our story is Agriculture and we hope you join us along the way. We don't want to bore anyone, hopefully we will keep you entertained and educated. Follow us as we introduce you to our rural lifestyle and feel free to ask any questions along the way.


 

DECISIONS

For Christmas Break would you rather go Snow Skiing in Colorado or to a Stock Show in Phoenix, AZ? http://www.anls.org/

3 days of packing ....

Look out Phoenix here we come!





Stall area before, during and after.


WASH AND DRY 8 HEAD!

SHOW DAY! and everyone is hoping for the same thing........
for one of these!! Congrats boys!

Yes that was the question of the year. We left the day after Christmas, drove 970 miles, enjoyed the awesome weather of Phoenix and spent New Year's Eve on I40 somewhere between Phoenix and home. We asked the boys on the way home if they would have rather went snow skiing and they said, "No Way!" we feel the same. Next show is Denver, CO and no we won't be there for snow skiing. The boys will be showing at the http://www.nationalwestern.com/ We've been for the past 3 years to watch, but this will be the first year they will be showing!

  1. I never missed the holidays that were spent on the road, my birthday almost always fell on Junior Nationals and what mattered was that our family was together and we were having fun. Stock show kids are unlike any others and have many memories!
