Chuck and I will have been married 30 yrs August 3rd. We have 4 wonderful children and 4 amazing grandkids. Ranching and horses having always been our life. We both came from that background. Chuck loves ranching and takes great pride in his cattle operation and rasing great horses. He likes to rope and show in the cowhorse if he has time. I still continue to barrel race and have cut back on rodeos and am enjoying the bigger 4 D’s and hauling my solid horses. They always have good ground and I can go and camp with my horses a few days. I love being a grandma. The highlight of my life are those kids. We are very proud of our children that they have great work ethic, enjoy the family life and are independent. We both like to hunt and have enjoyed that along with guiding a few hunters and friends every year. We enjoy going south in the winter and get to showing our horses more. Our passion is our family and the ranch life that includes the horse breeding program and cattle operation.
