Cowboy Ole and his family live on an agrarian ranch in the remote Southern Utah mountains.  Upon pulling into the ranch, you would immediately be struck by all the animals and children {mostly barefoot} running around.

You can find the baby of the family and her perfect cherub cheeks and chunk attached to her beautiful and industrious mother’s hip…

Or his four-year-old daughter {who struggles to wear clothes} wandering around the ranch with her yellow hair hanging in her bright blue eyes, dragging puppies or kittens around, inviting them to be in her club…

Or hear his seven-year-old daughter belting out moody tunes…

Or witness his eight-year-old daughter extending her help to anyone who needs it, or making them gifts, or quietly playing in the river by herself…

Or his 12-year-old son {who is left at home with six sisters as his two brothers are grown and out of the house} showing his face only from time-to-time to reveal his latest Lego creation, or art storyboards, which are both always so impressive…

Or his 14-year-old daughter pacing barefoot in the wild greenery by the river while she melodiously plays her violin, but only when she’s not cooking up multi-course meals or baking scrumptious treats for the family…

Or his 15-year-old daughter mysteriously and quietly absent from the 13-acres only to find out that she’s been riding one of their plethora of horses up in the mountains by herself…

The three oldest kids, two boys and one girl, have left the ranch and laid their own roots, returning when they can to their idyllic, heaven-on-earth home for visits.

As for Cowboy Ole, when he’s not riding, herding, or ranching, he’s homesteading, gardening, cooking, or tending to his horses, chickens, geese, turkeys, pigs, or dogs.

He has an insatiable appetite for knowledge, so he’s always got one of us reading to him while he’s working, between destinations, or even over the phone if he’s driving alone.

When he’s away from his home ranch, he’s packing mules up mountains with food for his sheep herders, saving sheep from 100-foot cliffs, herding to greener pastures, riding horses through remote mountain-sides that have no other access, building make-shift shelters and tents, shoeing {or castrating} horses, docking lambs, telling stories, cutting down trees in forests, breeding horses or pigs ~ you know, a normal, average, every-day life.

I guarantee that whoever is tagging along with him, as many often do, is having a good time and being entertained by him.  Cowboy Ole seems super-human, is clever, funny, charming, controversial and, well, just a little bit “off”.  Love him or hate him, most people find themselves with uncontrollable curiosity impossible to satisfy.
