Living and working on a cattle and horse ranch in the deep south. I don't tweet, twit, chirp or face.
“You cannot remain unmoved by the gentleness and conformation of well-bred and well-trained horse – more than a thousand pounds of big-boned, well-muscled animal, slick of coat and sweet of smell, obedient and mannerly, and yet forever a menace with its innocent power and ineradicable inclination to seek refuge in flight, and always a burden with its need to be fed, wormed and shod, and its liability to cuts and infections, to laming and heaves. But when it greets you with a nicker, nuzzles your chest, and regards you with a large and liquid eye, the question of where you want to be and what you want to do has been answered.”
–Albert Borgmann, Crossing the Postmodern Divide, 1992
The Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889 was the first land run into the Unassigned Lands and included all or part of the 2005 modern day Canadian, Cleveland, Kingfisher, Logan, Oklahoma, and Payne counties of the U.S. state of Oklahoma.The land run started at high noon on April 22, 1889, with an estimated 50,000 people lined up for their piece of the available two million acres.
The Land Run of 1892 was the opening of the Cheyenne-Arapaho Reservation to settlement in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. One of seven in Oklahoma, it occurred on April 19, 1892, and opened up land that would become Blaine, Custer, Dewey, Washita, and Roger Mills counties.The land run also opened up what would become part of Ellis County, Oklahoma, but was designated County “E” and then Day County prior to statehood.
