The Rancher’s Wife Checklist

We branded calves on Saturday. I’m not the typical ranch wife (or maybe in the 21st century I AM a typical rancher’s wife), but preparing for a big event like branding is still quite the task.

Here was my checklist:
1. A Subaru full of groceries



2. The hired help is lined up



3. Prepared to jump in and do what’s needed


Aunt duty? Check.


Records? Check.


Haul a load of seed corn? Check.

The day was an overall success. Now this full-time teacher/part-time ranch gal is ready for summer break.

From our corrals to yours,
The Displaced City Girl
