Moon was born in 1995, when
Dale Askew was 12, to a mare named
Shasta. She was Dale’s using horse in
elementary and middle school. Moon
got his name from the marking on his
forehead. After Dale started Moon he
became the main mount for everyone
to drag off of at family brandings.
When Dale went to college Moon
went with him and they competed
at college rodeos. After Dale graduated
he became the rodeo instructor
at Clarendon College. There, his students
would use Moon to compete in
their own rodeo events. Moon has
been used for calf roping, team roping,
and even a goat tying at Texas Tech!
As the years went by Moon settled
into retirement, with the exception
of a ranch rodeo or two. Then along
came Caleb, Dale’s now 8 year-old
nephew, who is eager to follow in
his daddy and uncle’s footsteps. Ol’
Moon is perfect for him to do just
that. He still has plenty of GO which
is essential when gathering a large
pasture but he also takes his time in
the pens and comes out of the calves
nice and easy so Caleb can get his
dally. Moon is absolutely worth his
weight in gold, at least to our family.
Finally - triplets!
Mike Wilson has been a cattleman
his whole life and this is the 1st set of
triplets he can remember. These triplets
were born February 27 on our ranch,
Wilson Cattle Company from Brewster,
WA. They are all doing good.

Ranch Tip -
champion gate latch
This gate latch is “The Best” as
voted by every man, woman and
child on the ranch.
The rope allows one to wrap the
gate stick and pull. The knots are handles.
And best of all… the knots allow
women and children to close the gate
without bruising their shoulder or calling
for help. It’s also very inexpensive
and easy to install.
