Title Herding, Learning to Cut Tracks
Description Grandma reached down with her left hand to grab his head, but when her fingers were only an inch above his head, the rooster flapped his wings and got up and ran. Grandma laughed and put her arm around me. "You didn't kill him, just knocked him unconscious. I was much relieved, even exhilirated, and laughed with her. As we walked back to the house she asked, "What have you learned about throwing something at the chickens?" "That I shouldn't do it." She counseled, "Your Grandpa Christensen was kind to our farm animals. He hated to see animals abused. Those at our home place were always fed in the morning before Grandpa ate breakfast, and were fed at night before he ate supper. I want you, young man, to be kind to all animals." HERDING, LEARNING TO "CUT TRACKS" W. Dean Frishknecht Professional First Place Personal Recollection. In the spring of 1931, I was released a week early from the fifth grade at Manti Junior High by my teacher, Miss Orpha Munk, in order to herd our yearling ewes, 170 head, in the hills above our family ranch. The world was in the Great Depression, and people were cutting costs. At 11 years of age, this herding responsibility made me feel a bit more mature, gave me a sort of a "young man" status. Each morning at 6:30, right after breakfast, my older brother and ! accompanied Dad as we left our home in Manti and drove in our family auto to the ranch where we worked all day. We returned home each evening. 141
