Title Born in 1896
Description In his history he said. "I would get up before daylight and go find my horse. Then I would take the sheep where I wanted them and then go back to camp to fix breakfast. After breakfast I went out to the sheep again to see how they were and settle them down. Then you're good till about 4 o' clock in the afternoon. Then you go and get the sheep and bring them in by your camp to bed down. I went through the same routine every day for about a week, and then my brother would come and help move me. The sheep would have to be trained to lay at a new camp, and the herding was just the same. In the fall 1 would go back to school. "I helped my mother on the farm. I milked cows, and when I was seven years old I took the cows to the pasture every day and brought them back every night. -When I was 19, I went to Scofield and worked in a store. I delivered with a team and clerked. The store was owned by the Niel Madsen family. When 1 came home for Christmas it would take from daylight to dark in a Model T Ford. When I was 21.1 was drafted in the Army and served with the 8th Army stationed at Ft. Lewis Washington. "I herded sheep in Scofield for about 20 years. In the spring (about the 15th of July) we would take the sheep to Twin Creek [east of Mt. Pleasant). About the 15th or 20th of October, we went to Cricket Mountain (Black Rock, Utah] for the winter. We would leave there the 1st of May and trail them to Scofield. It would take us 2 or 3 weeks to get to Scofield. Then we started shipping them on the train. We would unload at Colton and trail 15 miles to Scofield. Then we started trucking them. We loaded at Black Rock and unloaded at Scofield. This took only about 15 hours. This year (1972) we loaded them at Garrison, trucked them to Mt. Pleasant and sheared them the same day. We never gave up the 'tote-goat.' The horse and dogs still play an important part in herding sheep." 15th child of Fredricka Jensen Brothersen. Courtesy Sharon B. Stauffer 46
