Hitching Up the Team

Chief and Commander



Here’s our good Percheron team, which helped us feed the sheep all winter. They are living their best life now, with lots of grass all around. Eamon took them for walkabout recently. They are truly gentle giants.

    I know it’s silly, but tell them I love and honor them. Without a team of Percherons like that, I don’t know how my mom’s family — 9 kids on the high plains of south/central Montana — would have survived the Great Depression. They pulled the school bus my grandma drove, they pulled the plow and the wagon. They took the Baptists/Methodists to church on Sunday. They helped get hay out to the cows and calves in spring blizzards. Their team looked just like Chief and Commander.
