Jeremy Enlow on KFDX
In August, Jeremy Enlow visited Wichita Falls to attend the Texas Ranch Roundup. The Waggoner Ranch cowboys were present, cooking at the chuck wagon and competing in the rodeo. While there, he spoke with Samaria Terry of KFDX about recent changes on the Waggoner Ranch.
“Any new owners coming in, there’s going to be changes. But some of these changes going on are going to be hard for the cowboys and it’s hard for the communities around here. The Waggoner family was so instrumental in helping the communities. They were civic leaders and those are big shoes to fill.” – Jeremy Enlow, speaking with KFDX
The interview took place shortly after news broke that Stan Kroenke was forcing Lake Diversion residents to vacate their homes. This controversial decision has ignited passionate discussions about Kroenke’s new role at the ranch. Discussing what inspired him to make the book, Enlow said:
“I was hoping to preserve this way of life not only for future generations, but also for the new owner. To actually see the faces of the employees out there. To actually see the families and what they go through. And especially now I think that this is more important than ever, because decisions about the Waggoner Ranch are being made in Montana and Los Angeles.”
