However this is no excuse on my part for not keeping in touch.
I am very very saddened to hear about Don’s passing.
I am so very grateful to have learned from his wisdom/expertise.
I am more grateful for the friendship that we had and how kind and forgiving he was.
Thank you Don, God bless you and your loved ones.
Thank you for letting me know you.❤️

Wonderful to hear from you again HD. I understand the journey as I've been on one myself. Stay in touch. ;-)

Please let her know he's not forgotten. I hope she and his family are doing well, circumstances considering.

I have not been a member very long and I can remember seeing Dun's posts at different times. Is there a way of reading them all without wading thru every thread?

Just look up pretty much any thread from 2017 back. He only had 47343 posts! Lots of good information over the years.

Do you mean mineral feeder? I actually taught him and he built his own & posted it. I "stole" the "pattern" from Hudson Pines Farm (David Rockefellers farm). They could afford any kind of mineral feeder, but they found this to be most efficient.
We ALWAYS referred to it as Dun's mineral feeder.
Brings back memories!!!

the whole thread brings back memories.
Glad to see it in a way, as it was a while since I'd logged in and the first thing I noticed was an absence.
Knowing, is better than guessing that Dun has left these earth-bound forums.

Much good advice over many years, he imparted.

Headin' In

Some fellers favor sunup
just before their day begins,
while others favor eve'nin
when their day is at an end.

But this old cowboy's dif'rent
it's the way I've always been,
cause the time that gets me smilin'
is the time for headin' in.

With a day of work behind me
and before the sunset ends,
it's a quiet and peaceful feelin'
on the trail while headin' in.

There's a breeze that often comes up
as a warm, southwestern wind,
and a glow across the prairie
as I'm slowly headin' in.

Above a hawk is wheelin'
swoopin' down then up again,
as if he wants one final look
'fore he too is headin' in.

My saddle pal don't say much
but he tells me with a grin,
he feels about the same as me
with our ponies headin' in.

Someday this'll all be over
just the prairie, grass and wind,
I hope He'll let me pass this way
when it's time for headin' in.

I saw a new post on this thread and just wanted to say that I read through this entire thread history just a day or two ago. Someone on here has a quote from him as their signature line and that is what prompted me to read it.

Don passed just a few months after I joined this Board and I really regret not getting to know him. From all I have seen he was a class act and definitely let his mark on this world.
