I am seeking a position on a cattle ranch, and willing to relocate for the right fit.

29 years old.

The last year and a half I have been living in Gunnison, Colorado helping a friend with their family owned ranch. They run a cow-calf operation, with about 15 head of ranch/hunting horses.

I have had some experience during calving season, watching for signs of calving, hard labor, sick calves, and doctoring/ tagging after a few hours- days old.

I also assisted in branding/vaccinating using a table.

I spent many hours in the sage and mountain country checking and gathering cow/calf pairs.

I assisted with irrigation, but would need more instruction on efficient irrigating, and rotational water patterns.

During haying I learned to run a tractor and I teddered and used a rotary rake. I would need a refresher, but I catch on quick as I used a forklift consistently for 6 months at a lumber store and a different type of tractor at a barn job I also had.

During the fall/summer I had experience with sorting/ running through chutes to doctor/retag/vaccinate/ preg check.

I am inexperienced compared to most, but I think with the right environment I would learn fast.

I do need to learn to rope, I have started with a dummy on the ground, but I have yet to rope anything live.

I have horse experience, I have been riding 3 years. I have a 9 year old bay mare who is broke and has experience dragging calves to the fire prior to me owning. She is a solid ranch horse and is sure footed in rough country.

I also own a coming three year old gelding. He will be going to training in February 2019 for 90 days and will come out being a well rounded ranch horse as well. I have all my own tack and a truck and 20’ stock combo trailer.

The right fit will include a place for me to bring the two horses, and one dog, a 9 year old German Shorthair Pointer.

I have experience in many jobs prior to seeking out the ranch life such as: EMT Basic for 5 years, Fuel dispatcher, Food, beverage, and Customer service jobs.

I am a hard worker, who doesn’t like confrontation, doesn’t drink or smoke, enjoys staying physically fit, enjoys fly fishing, and wants to learn to hunt.
