It takes a village

“Everybody’s kids is everybody’s kids,” says cowboy John Paul Welch. “It’s like family. I treat your kids like mine, and you treat mine like yours.” He laughs. “It’s hard for kids to get in trouble out here.”

During the summer, several of the kids that live on the ranch tag along with the cowboys each day.

The kids don’t sit in the truck and play video games.  They are actively helping brand calves and riding horses herding cattle.

The bond the cowboys have with the kids is amazing.  They say “It takes a village to raise a child,” and this village loves their kids.

Free shipping for the Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch book ends this Saturday, October 31st.  To take advantage of this offer click the link below.

Cowboy Daly Welch

Daly Welch is a fourth generation family member to work on the Waggoner Ranch.

“Here recently I’ve been having a few people telling me that I’ll never have a life because I work all the time and don’t go out!” Daly said. “Honestly all I can say is that I do have a life, the best one I could ever ask for! My job is my life.”

“I do what I love every single day! I work with some of my best friends! I work with one of my biggest role models, my dad (John Paul Welch)! And work with guys that I look up to and always will! They teach me something new everyday!”

“So to everyone that doesn’t think I have a life because I work all the time, my life might not be partying in bars all the time and all that, but I wouldn’t trade my life with anyone!”

There are only 10 days left to receive free shipping for pre-orders.

The Cross on the Wall

The cross hanging on the wall in the cook shack isn’t a decoration.  There was no slick preaching or theological discussions going on across the lunch table to prove it, but the values of the cowboys are easy to see.

Waggoner Ranch Manager Weldon Hawley, foreground, is always the last to get his plate for lunch.  He waits at the cook shack, sometimes an hour or so, until all the cowboys, children, and ranch workers come in for lunch and all fill their plates buffet style. When the last person is finished making their plate, only then will Weldon get his lunch and return to his seat at the head of the table to enjoy the home cooked meal.

Corporations spend a lot of time and money working to figure out how to foster a positive and productive working environment.   Maybe all they need to do is look up at the wall every now and then.

Golden Sunrise

Waggoner Cowboy Josh Rodriquez prepares his horse to round up cattle on the ranch.  The sunrise/sunset colors on the ranch are amazing due to little pollution in the air and a crisp sky.
