The Story of Old Buck
One day a young colt stood alert in the corral. It seemed like just yesterday when the rancher worked with young Buck and trained him to take the bridle and saddle. The weeks and months passed so quickly and Buck responded to herding the cattle with noteable instinct. Buck and the rancher seemed inseparatable.
How quickly the years passed by and that very difficult moment arrived when neither the rancher or Buck could any longer maintain the performance their chores required. The old saddle and bridle were put up in the tack room and “ol Buck was put out to pasture.
The devoted old rancher continued to venture out into the pasture to feed grain to ‘ol Buck and groom him a little but the real meaning behind his trips out to pasture was really to spend time with his trusted companion of many years.
Dan has applied the ancient genre of woodburning to rustic wood from a 1860s-era homestead—a log ranch house. It was located on a working ranch in the Arkansas River Valley of the Colorado Rockies. Just a stone’s throw away from the “new” ranch house (built in the 1880s but recently renovated) where Dan now resides with his brother Frank Allnutt.
