Ranch meaning, in general, any real world dwelling probably not involving full care board. Kind of a rural voice of real horse owners, trainers, traders, auction owners, rodeo contractors, etc.. all of us who have taken a verbal beating and called greedy ass hats. Back at the Ranch contributors, moderators, subjects, and so on, are pro-horse, pro-owner, and pro-slaughter.
Back at the Ranch was formed by a group of like minded horse / livestock owners. It is a place for us to try to educate, a place to vent our frustrations with the current equine industry, a place to share humor and snark, and in general try to open the eyes of the public who seem to be anti-agriculture.We do have a section for comments of course, and if you would like to email us you can do so directly or through the contact us form. We like to hear from our readers. I hope you enjoy reading our blog as much as I enjoy managing it.
Sincerely,
Ranch Manager

A format of sorts.

Although my mind seems to go non stop about a hundred miles an hour and my mouth often tries to keep up my typing skills do not allow my fingers to do so lol. I decided to set aside 3 days a week to certain topics and the other 4 days may or may not be posted.
As I and many others have been working in the trenches of the horse industry in one way or another for most of our lives and now working in the trenches to keep the horse industry alive for the past 5 or so years we have become tired so you may see much sarcasm and snark in our posts. Tired and weary as we are we have not given up! and we are becoming optimistic once again at the thought of the horse processing plants reopening in the U.S. I know, there’s still a great deal of work ahead but a promising new organization has given us hope. They are called The American Horse League, Inc. They are going to fight fire with fire so to speak. They will take on the HSUS, PETA, and like organizations in the courts. Hey anyone who is willing and strong enough to do that has my total support!
Not only has the incorporation of this group given us hope but the forces they are joining with seem strong and well supported as well. One is “The United Organizations of the Horse" hope others will follow!
We do want this to be a fun place but we would also like to give recognition to some very good horseman and women who are often “behind the scenes“ or just going about their daily lives doing what they do not needing to be the center of attention. We can all learn a thing or two from these folks.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I am sitting in front of this computer screen trying to type as fast as my mind races and not having much success with it. We will follow this format (for the time being anyway) three days a week, the other 4 days are a bit of a free for all.
* Monday - “OH crap it’s Monday!”
no one wants to research for a blog over the weekend so you're stuck with Personal Opinion number............
* Thursday - “featured articles”
* Saturday Satire - (will most likely be posted late Friday night depending on your time zone)
FYI>
sat·ire (sāt'īr') n.
1. a. A literary work in which human vice or folly is attacked through irony, derision,
or wit.
b. The branch of literature constituting such works.
2. Irony, sarcasm, or caustic wit used to attack or expose folly, vice, or stupidity.
