The ranch through time: A moment with the geese

We are so lucky to be able to carry on the farming and ranching traditions of our family through to the next generation. Over the last century or so, the ranch has been a special place for so many people. Beverly was generous enough to share a trove of old ranch photos and each Tuesday we will take a look back at the ranch through time.

Today's photo is one of my absolute favorites of the collection. This timeless image of Chuck Sr. with his three pet geese not only captures an overall spirit of the ranch but also the calm, quiet mannerisms of Chuck Sr. himself. The way he crouches down to engage the geese you could almost imagine the exact same image with his three children thoughtfully pondering his words of wisdom. But which silly goose is too busy playing in the food?
