THE END IS NEAR! Well, sort of. Only about 6 weeks left to shop in store here in Goodnight. Come check out the crazy deals; visit the "new" homestead/distribution facility across US 287 - the new home of Herd Wear Online. Need furniture, antique store displays, store decor or some of our Herd Wear signage? ... it all has to go and I am motivated to listen to offers. Remember, June 29-July 6 we will be serving bison deli dogs and burgers lunchtime; music some days --- and if you want to attend the July 5 dinner concert there are a few tickets left. Remember, ticket sale proceeds go to 4 of our local charities. There is a new (easier to swallow) ticket/donation - $50 - that gets you the same "swag bag and goodies" ... lunchtime burgers etc ... but not the fancy dinner July 5 Call or text me if you need clarification (or just to yak!)
Yes, folks ... BIG NEWS. The Texas Historical Commission has bought the store in Goodnight. We will be there through the end of July, 2024 ... and then on line or by phone. No; we are not "quitting" - HERD WEAR will continue. Be sure you are on our email list and also on Buffalo Wool Co's list.

I couldn’t put this down

So several sleep deprived days later I finished it and now discover that there is a part 2 available....I can hardly wait for our upcoming snowstorm and my new book...
Dan O’Brien is a naturalist and expert on the care and treatment of the plains. this book tells us how he made the switch from cattle to buffalo on his South Dakota ranch. It is a story of chances, trial and error, and trying to make ends meet by just ranching and not having to suppliment his income with teaching etc jobs away from the ranch. It is the story of perseverance and a LOT of hard work but you have only to go to his website to see that it was all worth it. Dan is a wonderful writer who will certainly keep you turning the pages and asking for more.

Thank you for an excellent and informative review. Dan is just as good a person as he is a writer ... top of the heap. Glad you enjoyed the read (now go get some sleep!)
