This is Maci, 7, with her
bucket calf Alley. Ellie is
10 on her horse, Flippy, and the dog
is named Blue (he’s getting a ride
because he’s “tired”). Thank you so
much. We love your magazine!
Checkin’ her cows
This is our daughter Hartley Rieken.
She might only be one but she’s
already running this operation here
in Central Nebraska. “Moo!” was one
of her fi rst words, and she doesn’t
let us forget she needs to go sit on
the fence and check her cows daily!
She’s our little cowgirl!
Jeremiah and Megan Rieken
Our two year-old son, Ira,
loves your magazine! He
spends his days cowboying
and ranching with us and is
a trooper through it all!
Memories in WR Junior
Good morning Christine,
I have a request from my 80 yearold
father-in-law. He saw a copy of
Working Ranch Junior at our Co-op
and liked a picture on the Featured
Junior Photographer page. He asked
me to make a copy of the photo
where the three kids are attempting
to latch the gate. I asked him why
he wants it and he said, “My brother
and I used to do the same thing and
it reminds me of him”. He said a 4x6
size is all he wants for his bulletin
board in his mud room.
Christine: OK, Ray, I’ll get permission
from the photographer.
