It's been a while since I was on here, just saw this. In 1982 I transferred to the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming, the Pinedale Ranger District. They had cattle drives to bring the beeves down from the high country in the fall, and back up in the spring. I was driving down the highway that autumn when I got into one of those cattle drives going down the road. They were all Herefords, and the horses the cowboys (and girls) were riding stood probably up to a foot higher than the cattle. EXCEPT for one steer who stood taller than the horses by far! We met the owners at church and they invited us to dinner later that winter. They said that "Tiny" had started growing faster than the other calves and just kept on growing. They kept him around to see how big he would get and he became a big pet. Somewhere I have a slide of him and my wife....
Good memories. Thanks for bringing them up!
