No Spinning Wheels


A1C4692Lonnie Barg drives his team through a feedlot at Picabo Livestock in Idaho, while Randy Lundergreen (hidden) spreads out straw. The bedding helps the stocker calves stay dry and warm during the winter months, and the horses keep Barg and Lundergreen from getting bogged down in the muddy pen. “I just enjoy the heck out of those horses,” Barg told me after this 2007 photo shoot. “They don’t break down or get stuck in the mud. It’s never too cold for a horse to get started. And those calves don’t seem to spook as easily as they do with a tractor. Them horses work pretty smooth and quiet in that pen.”
