Vintage Stan Howe

Post by dlmyers » Tue Mar 12, 2019 10:28 am

The archived forums only go back to 2005.
This is from 2004 and is (with his blessing) Stan's attempt to educate the non-cowboys/farmers on the forum.

Interesting post!
It brings back some memories from years ago. My Father was a County meat inspector at the local packing houses and would occasionally bring some home.
We raise cattle here here on the farm and this was a common practice to make steers out of the bull calves. Nothing new here for me and folks who raise cattle. We called them mountain oysters because they are pretty good if you like oysters!
Oh and we would have brains and eggs for breakfast also. Pretty good too.

I bet this post will make the “city folks” day!

99.99999% of today's young adults don't think about anything like this. Is there
an app for that ?, they'd ask.

Well, we are keeping the tradition alive here in Clark, WY. We have about 90 homes and a few good size ranches over 100 sq/mi and each year we have our Jubilee and among other things, a rodeo. My favorite part is the Jr. Bucking Contest for boys under age 7...that's right, a bucking contest. They all gather in the middle of the grounds and are handed stick-ponys and are told to buck like crazy...some stay on and some fall down in a zany sort of way. Audience applause determines the best cowboy. Mutton busting is great fun, too. Often the little girl's barrel races require daddy to lead the horse around the course and during that time you can go get a hot dog and a coke and get back to your seat to watch the finish and cheer like crazy.

Those children grow up with a sense of family and accomplishment that no participation trophy can match.

Dale, thank you for posting that. It's a fun read, and a happy reminder. I'm thankful for the "small operators" in my circle of friends who still do things "old school" and allow me to ride with them to the brandings and trailing their cows to summer range . . . and back in the fall. Kids who grow up with it, or at least next to it, gain a perspective I wish every child could experience. It's becoming ever harder to come by as urbanization takes hold, and the small outfits are squeezed out.

Thanks, Ken. Good to be back.

This subject of "the old ways" is fascinating. Growing up, I was always attracted to the
old folks to hear their stories and how things used to be. I own a TT today BECAUSE of
those people and my interest in their "old ways".

Good stuff, that. 👍

I grew up in a small farming town and ate all the best that city people wouldn’t consider giving it to their dog, but that is still the best for us. The ways of the old are still the best and that is why I am with my model T’s. I would love to get a high wheeler that reminds me of the daily rides with my grandfather that was horse drawn, but money is avoiding me. Making the best of things as is. Frank

Frank, I have to chuckle every time I hear so and so has the oldest rodeo . . . in the state, country, whatever. Payson's rodeo dates from 1884 they claim, but Prescott was first to charge admission (1888) so it depends on how one qualifies the event. In Idaho, both Grangeville and Idaho Falls claim the state's oldest, but both date from 1912. Since north and south are pretty much isolated from one another, separated by the wilderness area, we don't talk to each other ! :lol:

The few times I've passed through Nebraska, I've noticed more than a few cafes, restaurants and eateries advertising that they have "Rocky Mountain Oysters" on the menu. Never seen that anywhere else. Visit Nebraska, you'll have a ball !! :lol:
