The Oxbow Horses

A big part of our day-to-day life at Oxbow involves our horses.  We use them to handle our cows as well as travel the vast country where we graze our cows.  It is a true partnership between us and our horses which teaches us to be humble and listen.  We value them highly and appreciate the jobs we can get done with them in a quiet and unobtrusive manner.  Here they are:

An abandoned channel in the course of a river, shaped like a U. We graze our cows on the ancient "oxbows" of the Bitterroot River, where these sub-irrigated fertile remnants of the Bitterroot provide lush feed for grass-finishing cattle.
