Little Green HeronBack about '70, when my father wasn't able to come back up to WA from AZ on farm business, due to age and health, he traded my horse rack (temporarily) on my ol' '59 Chevy pickup (gotta sell that ol' buddy) for a little 6x8 camper (still have it, too... on a "brand new" '68 Ford. Between '02 and '06 chased birds through 17 western states and two provinces with that ol' Ford buddy). Went from ridin' those ol' AZ hills, to living out in the WA boondocks with the critters in my camper, for months at a time, before heading back south. (When I got the itch to move into a town and an RV park, and it snowed that night, figured maybe I'd spent too much time with my coyote brothers...was beginning to think like them!) Business was more waiting around, so, I spent a lot of time with that Sackett family, and the rest of Louis L'Amour characters. Later, back in AZ, reading them to my father, one of the things he liked about Louis' characters was what they oft' stated, that they preffered "a woman who would walk beside them, not behind them". (Movies with helpless women standing around, screaming, during fights drove him nuts.) Guess that was somewhat the way he raised me, often telling me to throw "can't" out of my vocabulary. Now, in my own old age, I can understand why westerns were so favored by him. He was born in 1889 in a log cabin in Michigan, migrated to the west coast at age 6 or 7, shortly after they'd put the Great Northern Railway through the Cascades. As a young man he followed his brother to the Boise, ID area to work as a farmhand for pioneer folks there, who told him of older times, even of the indian war times. My uncle was driving stagecoach out of Boise then, I think maybe to Silver City. I know it was to a mining area. The folks homesteaded in Brooks, Alberta, Canada in the early '20s. Had sheep on the range there, when the cattlemen were still telling the sheepmen they'd better keep their sheep on their own side of the RR tracks...or else. The old west was in his history, and, through him, in mine. Loved Zane Grey, but Louis L'Amour wrote a more realistic, less romantisized, fast moving western...and, as he said, if he wrote of a waterhole in his books, it was really there....and he did seem to like dun horses. He was a prolific author, and I still have a whole, long shelf of his books. If Westerns appeal to you, Louis L'Amour are must read books! Think I might have to check out Will James' "Smoky", book my father gave me as a kid. I seem to remember his discription of Smoky as a mouse colored horse....sounds Grulla to me.6 days ago   ·  4

One Response to “Welcome to the Dunrovin Osprey Nest”

  1. Hi SuzAnne and Sterling,

    You are wonderful, kind and caring souls to share your life at your ranch with us. Thank you with all my heart! I had such happiness watching our sweet little Osprey family Ozzie and Harriet, Percy, Hope and Dilly, and viewing your beautiful horses. I felt part of your family then and even more so now since I am a member of your Dunrovin Ranch family. I learned so much about Ospreys and now learning about horses and ranch life. Thank you for giving of yourselves, I feel you are such beautiful and spiritual people for doing this. Blessings and goodness will come to you for making so many people happy! SuzAnne, I love your beautiful singing voice in your videos, it comes straight from within your heart and soul, I can feel it!

    Thank you and goodness and happiness to you,

    Nancy Acanfora
