The Top Five Things Every Rancher Thinks YOU Should Know

Many believe that the ranch life is all “howdy doody” and something to be poked fun at. Well, I’m here to tell you that there have been some misconceptions about the ranch life, and people need to wise up. So here are some things that we believe you need to know—straight from the horse’s . . . I mean rancher’s mouth.

  1. We don’t just hang out all day, ride bulls, dress up as cowboys, spit chewing tobacco, and ride horses into the sunset; there is lots of work to be done on the farm and animals need to be taken care of.
  2. A jolly rancher is not a candy . . . it is a man who truly loves working on a farm with his bare hands . . . perhaps that’s something a little sweet after all.
  3. There is no down time to our job. We know that students get time off for summer vacation, employees get Christmas vacation time, and you can call in sick whenever you feel like it and there are no repercussions. Well, sir, that is not how the farm life is. If you’re out, then the lives of all your cattle and plant life is at stake, which is not the type of work to play hooky on.
  4. Boots are made for working. That means all you pretty women and those fancy boots of yours could stand some time in the field, pitching hay or gathering crops, rather than going out with your friends to those fancy malls in the city.
  5. Not every person who lives on a ranch looks like the Marlboro Man! That is a misconception that needs to be cleared up right now. There are some beautiful cowgirls out there too—you know.

I hope after taking a gander and reading this here post you’ll have a sense of what it means to be a true rancher. If not, then you better get off your computer and go spend some time with your rancher self. Cowboy

Why You Should Live in the Country

Sure, city life can be fun, but I feel like Ariel from the Little Mermaid. I want moreeee! (Cue music and beautiful singing voice). I find myself tired of the constant struggle of the traffic and freeways of California, and I love Southern Food, as you might have seen.

I know that city folk and country folk were probably designed with different genetics, but there’s no reason to shut out the countryside completely, if you’re not dead set on living there, it’s a wonderful place to visit.

Still Not Convinced? Here’s a Few Reasons to Practice Your Southern Drawl…

1. You’re One With Nature

Once you get away from the city, you get to realize what made our ancestors fall in love with this place. The beautiful trees, the array of stars that are blocked by the city lights, and what seems to be like perfect weather.

Check out these beautiful properties for sale, sure you and I might both be saving up for a few years, but it’s worth it to get these beautiful estates, should that be your dream.

2. The Food!

Set some fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and mac and cheese in front of me, I’m one happy camper. Add in some biscuits and gravy and some sweet tea, I’m set for life. I love that all their food tends to be homemade, and it is the best.

You feel healthier eating all this homemade food, even if it does have a few more calories 😉 the nature is renewing to your spirit while the food renews your soul. What’s your favorite southern food? Here’s 101 awesome Southern recipes for you to try or experience when you visit the South.

3. You Get to Have Some Real Fun 😉

Sure, smartphones and watching movies are entertaining, but what really gets my heart soaring is the good ol’ country life. I haven’t done half of these activities yet, but they’re all up there. As it’s been said, if you don’t come home with mud on your clothes, your day hasn’t been fun enough…

What are my guilty pleasures? Well thanks for asking, I know you were very interested In my country likes. Here are some of mine: fishing, hiking, shooting, hunting, anything snow-related, cooking, dirt biking, boating, racing, and I love farm life.
