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

Apple Pie...

http://rtfitch.wordpress.com/2010/03/19/wyoming%e2%80%99s-%e2%80%9cslaughterhouse%e2%80%9d-sue-wallis-gets-a-dose-of-red-white-and-blue/
I just had to share this. Not because of it's newsworthiness, but because of the humor I find in it. We've heard from R.T. here before-(from what I understand, that is his given name). He's a champion of the Anti Slaughter side, and with articles like this one, I can see why. I have no problem with campaigning in the political arena, and I'm a huge fan of our veterans, so I wish this guy well. Have at it, and if with $380 in your pocket, you achieved the American dream, good for you! While R.T. extols the many virtues of the obvious patriotism and all around good guyness of this new upstart, he seems to thoroughly enjoy showing his disregard and lack of respect for Sue Wallis. But then, he doesn't seem to care for anyone who disagrees with his gospel. He doesn't seem to care for women much, either, from some of the comments he left here on his last visit. I enjoy a good conversation, even a debate on any issue. I like a well written article. I never see the need to out an out insult people, but to each his own, I suppose. I don't agree with everything Sue Wallis says or does, but I don't feel that gives anyone the right to bash her as R.T seems to feel entitled to do. But, enjoy the article. You'll feel like havin' yourself a nice ol' slice of American apple pie-or you'll just wonder if anyone takes this stuff seriously.

  1. I am not from Wyoming but I do live in a rural part of the country which has experienced a surge in "developement". I am always extremely pleased when people bring their freinds "from back east" or move to the country to escape the city then proceed to tell those of us who were here before the wind turbines, the mines, the loggers, and to rework our beliefs and way of life to fit what they left.

    The mining industry has brought many dollars of tax revenue to the state but like gambling, wind turbines, and meat packing in my state there have been many downfalls. Domestic violence, substance abuse, and drug trade have all risen significantly.

    He has adopted pound dogs so that gives him the knowledge to pass legislature governing ranching, the horse industry, and all other aspects of the state? The man agrees with them on horseslaughter but there is not one other statement of what he stands for.

    He started out with a little of nothing and has worked to get something. Another case of an anti-slaughter person crowing about taking care of the daily business of making a living?
