We left the ranch with mixed emotions this morning. The west part has gone up for sale with attention on commercial frontage. I know I've said this before. The orginal owners have passed and the three children each own a piece of the land making John have three landlords . The owner of the west property recently passed making three owners on that part so they have decided to sell. With the oil boom it is in it's prime now so we can't blame them. However we're sad. When it sells there will be no more driving to the back forty. So many memories! He does still have a five year contract on the middle property with the cattle pens, stock tank, and farm house. A five year lease on the east property too so we'll see what happens. Maybe he can lease from the new owners if they just want to put an oil business on the frontage. After feeding the cattle we made a big circle around the country roads. So nice there are still some left with no traffic and deer crossing. In fact some of the deer stopped to look at us. Makes me think someone feeds them and they had hope. Sorry we had to disappoint them.
