Winter in Wyoming

Some ranchers in the county continue to do their operations the old way, using teams of horses to pull hay sleighs to feed in the winter. At forty below, with three feet of soft snow and almost three hundred animals to take care of, feeding hungry cows and horses every day is a survival exercise for the cowboy and his herd. Lennie Campbell takes care of the Dell Fork Ranch in Bondurant. He must deal with the worst Wyoming can give each winter: Deep snow; ice too thick for the cows to get to drinking water; moose raiding the hay stacks: necessary repairs to the stack yards fences. We typically get most of our snow in February and March. More
