And later, whilst the various males married and taken out their other halves, we had every kind of excellent issues, corresponding to jams and jellies made of the wild plums and the buffalo berries, and potatoes from the forlorn little backyard patch. in addition, we had milk. such a lot ranchmen at the moment by no means had milk. I knew multiple ranch with 10000 head of livestock the place there has been now not a cow that may be milked. We determined that we might be extra enterprising. hence, we began to cultivate a few of the cows. Our first attempt was once no longer winning, mainly simply because we didn't commit the wanted time and persistence to the problem. And we chanced on that to race a cow miles at complete pace on horseback, then rope her, throw her, and switch her the other way up to exploit her, whereas exhilarating as a hobby, was once now not efficient of effects. steadily we gathered tame cows, and, once we had thinned out the bobcats and coyotes, extra chickens.
