Title Facts and Fiction about Sanpete's July Holidays
Description and then thanked them sincerely for their interest in his cattle and promised them that he would send two of his boys to the mountain the next day (July 24) to investigate the Batter. Upon hearing this, the herders said, "If your boys see our sheep will they kinda bunch them for as?" I was one of the Kesko boys who Has sent on this trip. When He returned to the valley that evening we reported to our father that we had not seen the thieves nor any of the cattle. We had not even seen any cattle tracks. However, we had seen two herds of sheep without herders, so we had obligingly remembered the herder's request and had bunched both herds together. Another time I talked to two men from Wyoming who spent the 4th and 24th of July at the Ephraim celebrations. They were from Lonetree, Hymning, and told me about the 'Shootout1 they had had with the sheepmen of that area. Now they had the Wyoming range, but did not have the money to buy the cattle to stock It. Thus, they decided to go to the Ariaona Strip and buy a small, mixed herd of cattle and then spend the summer trailing them back to Wyoming. I have no doubt in my mind, that by the time they had crossed the valleys, ranges, and mountains between Arizona and Wyoming, their herd was much larger than when they had begun their trek. As I remember back to my younger days, those holidays that came in July attracted everyone as "honey draws flies.' Holidays at that time were hard to come by, so they were enjoyed and appreciated. We really looked forward to them, for they broke the nonotony of our hard farm, labor during the summertime. Source! Personal recollection of the author. ^5?-
