I’m sure someone has written about
it or promoted it. Anyway, it works!”
In the winter or when time gets
slack, (whatever that is), John works
with leather. It is his release, going
to the leather shop and not really
thinking about the ranch work. John
has built about 13 saddles and many
chinks and chaps. He also makes a
large variety of holsters, and is always
trying to design a better one.
John, 64 and Cynthia 63 don’t
have any real plans for retirement. As
long as Trever can help manage the
place, they’re in it for a while longer
and will keep on Makin’ Cows.
