Quarter Horse Chat with Stan Weaver
About 30 miles from Big Sandy, Montana, snowy winters demand tough horses and tough cattle. Broodmares spend the winter outdoors, foaling outside in April then fattening up on summer pastures before the fall weaning. Then comes winter and the whole cycle starts over again. That’s how it has been on Weaver Ranch since the 1880s, when the first Weavers entered the state. That’s where Stan and Nancy Weaver ranch now, first teaching their three children and now their three grandchildren the same ways they were taught by their parents and grandparents.
