Being a Cowboy begins as a state of mind. He is not born, but is made by his own
design. An appreciation of God's great creation of the outdoors, Which gives to
him and nature a true relationship. With the sky as the roof of his home. The
fields, the streams, the mountain to roam. He rides along with a child's wide eyes.
He believes everyday to be a special prize. His life, may it been short. We'll never
forget ! Because he lived that life to its full extent. When his work & play was
done at the end of the day. We caught a glimpse of him as he rode away. The sun
set slowly in the west and he goes on that last ride to his rest. He never turned to
give a backward look, for he knew not, this would be the last ride he took.
Yet in our hearts he rides forever.
The Last Ride
I Will always love you !

Chris finishing up the Sheep Barn
at midnight or so, before storm was
to come in that morning. Little did
we know that it would be ruined
along with all the barns and new
roof we just put on the house by
Soft Ball size hail. All the animals
were all safe and sound.

Chris's first catch in the lil pond,  at our home which is now the mini
lake in the front yard. This lil sun perch was all of 5 inches long.
Chris etched this out in our fresh
poured concrete in the barn for us
and his dog Bob stamped his foot of
approval. We poured 30 yards of
concrete that day in only a few
hours. Chris, myself and one other
friend. Had a blast doing it.
