    Wow, those are some really beautiful pics. Sounds like a lot of hardwork in the sun

    Glad you are enjoying them! Sun? True that. Not a lot of use for a tanning salon here :)

    What kinda ranch do you have? Do you raise beef? Has your fam been doing it for generations? I don't have any connection to the culture, except I lived in Phoenix for a while, that's when I started wearing full brim hats regularly. In general I loved the South West, beautiful nature, lots of neat cultural vibes you don't get anywhere else

    Beef? It's what for supper :D

    Most working ranches do any number of things for a cash flow, raising beef, horses and hay (for your own use) and for sale is common. Making your working ranch into a tourist's "guest ranch" is as well, for the cash flow. Here? Most small acreages are cashing in and moving on, by selling out to developers (who are building housing sub-divisions).

    Easy way to make 1 Mil $ on a ranch? Start out with 5 mil :confused:

    Not a life style for everyone. My family has been involved as far back as I can trace it.

    Well, I am a bit surprised to find photos of leather work on the forum and some of the photos posted, and since I work a little bit in leather, I thought that I would post some of my work. All of my stitching is done by hand, I use the saddle stitch. I have 3 belts and holsters that I have done, one id a rough out with the gun slinger stitch work, I recently replaced the belt buckle on the belt and made a new holster to go with it, I wasn't fond of the way the first holster turned out. I have some updated photos for it. The belt with the formed leather pouch, has 3 different holsters, 2 holsters are for black powder 44, one holster being a cross draw, one holster for a Ruger 45 with a 5.5" barrel, the pouch holds 50 rounds of 45LC. The third belt has the 45 cartridge loops. The two images at the bottom are of the rough out version after I made some changes, new belt buckle and holster. I made one other wester style gun belt and holster for someone that requested a tailor-made rig for black powder, the bely=t was 3.5" wide with a 1.5" drop loop, 5" wide at the drop loop, ammo pouch and a Crossdraw holster. I make my own hats; haven't made any hats for anyone else.
