Big Red was my wrangling horse in 79, I was in FLA when he was kicked and his leg broke. To think anyone would've done anything different is asinine BIG MAN because neither of us were there. The only thing you self proclaimed "real cowboys" have now, that we didn't back then, is perfect hind sight JACK.
matt, big red had many good wranglers on him,stan,stu,myself, steve mudock, curly many riders. MOE, was a great person when it came to horses and people. Moe, would call me every morning over the barn with phone in the hall way,and then i had to wake up everyone. it was yrs i can never forget.rick.

Manny died at least 15 years ago. Do you remember Rocky with his dog Skippy, Stanley who slept in the shack, Jimmy,Johnny, Ace. Do you remember the bar at the front of the ranch, next to the dining room and Bud & Carole Chase calling square dancing, and lots of western dancing. Do you remember the bedrooms where we all slept over the bar before the new barn was built?

remember when the man had a heart attack and fell off his horse and I jumped off lady flash in a flash and caught him before he hit the ground ..yep that was me..thank you thank you ..very much Remember dougie throwing me into the scummy horse trough and all my weed was soggy and algae filled ..yeah well I remember it...I remember the pastrami EVERYDAY and the canned grapefruit juice with an after note of rust, and I remember all the saddle sores and the aspca being bribed ...ahh youth is wasted on the young . If I knew then, what I know now...that crap NEVER would have went on. Horrible sores on most of those horses.
molly i worked up there from 1961 and up with moe,curly volpe the blacksmith and my uncle mac,and i can tell this whenever there was a horse with sores that horse was nurse by me or someone else and not rode till it was good to go. at one time dodge city was used as a place we use to keep more horse and those that were sore oh yea before your time.rick

I was there the sumer of 70. Walter Zimmer had a girlfriend that worked at the ranch too and then they broke up at the end of the summer. I think she left the ranch but what happened to Walter? he was friends with Curly. Walter was the riding instructor. Does anyone remember the girlfriend or Walter?
