Can't compare with 'Open Range' as far as good western type movie.


I turned it off after the oil worker guy dropped the first "F" bomb.

That was the most realistic part of the show.

I can handle the language better than the wife. We both laughed out loud when the pulled calf ran off and we ended up turning it off half an hour early.

Well they pulled a calf last night (I think it was a breech birth) and the minute his head was out he jumped up and ran off 20 mph....how realistic was that. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've had normally real docile momma jump up and run off at light speed 2 minutes after dropping one. Crazy cow....it was nuts to see. Ran over and into all kinds of crap..not sure she wasn't temporarily blind. She took the ride to town.

I meant about the "200 lb calf" running off more than the momma. I've had a few cows get right up and take off until they had a chance to get their mind straightened out; but never a calf jump up and have full functional use of their legs 3 seconds after hitting the ground... LOL.
Yes the language was a bit over the top, not that it isn't heard regularly in real life, but a bit much. Story line seems to be pretty decent.
As for not having all that on just a cow/cf operation.... years ago that is how so many of the ranches did make a good living. Labor was cheap, and they got BLM grazing leases, which were cheap. Not so much today though. Guess they will just import all the beef once they price us out of existence. Horses were cheap but had to be maintained year round where as the 4 wheelers can just be parked. Many places have gone to planes and helicopters, and all that is a part of "doing business". But there was a time that big ranches were profitable, and the owners lived big too. Lots of history on things like that. A person could work hard and with a little luck, could get ahead. Today, not so much without something else to get you there financially, first.

A helicopter not likely in my future, unless the good Lord blesses me with one..like Jessie do-plenty...but I been tinkering with the idea of a Drone to check on my cattle at times...

I saw several rigs in the background during multiple scenes. I hear that's pretty lucrative.

Not in the crowd I hang out with.

They are still profitable to those who are good business men and women. I could name off a number of people who started with nothing leased land, worked hard and built a ranch. The guy I leased my ranch to is in his early 40's. He started with nothing but a work ethic and cow sense. Today he is running about 500-600 head.
