"I loved the cattle work and the brandings. Thanks for sharing it
with me. Can I really be a cowgirl at heart?"

"Waiting five years for my third visit was
definitely worth it."
"Lost luggage, ripped jeans, sunburn, aching muscles, dust, dirt
... and I loved it all !!! Until next time !"
"If we could, we would stay longer. It will be an unforgettable
memory. Thanks for three beautiful weeks. There were people from all
over the world but it felt like one family."
"Riding at home will never be the same. What we learnt: Don't pee
on the electric fence. Beware of the man holding the hot branding iron.
Buffalo don't cooperate. Patience is a virtue when dealing with cows."
"Thanks, Mike, for taking care of us and making us cowboys!"
"What a fantastic experience ... wonderful horses, beautiful
scenery, moving cattle and buffalos, building fence, bottle feeding goat
kids and calves and meeting great people. I will take home with me

Brandy, keep up your wonderful charm. Mike, thanks for your impressive
voice ... we never got lost. Oh God, how we love this place!"
"These two weeks touched my soul. I lost a piece of my heart and I
have to come back."

Hope to come back next year!"
"We really enjoyed being part of your life for a while."

mule rides , shooting and best of all the food!"
"We have never met such kind and friendly folks as yourselves. I
am sure we'll be back."

he is the perfect cowboy to teach city girls like me."
Thanks Brandy for the great meals and the lessons in roping,
thanks Mike for trusting us with 300 head of cattle, thanks Nick and
Doerte for making this adventure possible."

was even better."

ever met. It's hard to leave such a great place."

and the pretty horses. We will sure come back."

we could ever dream of."
"Take care of this paradise ... so I can find it again."
