Wild things in the tack room

by Hal Walter

It pays to be “in the now” in my line of work, but often I find my mind somewhere else and running on overdrive as I go about my chores.

My most reliable employment these days is managing a small ranch where we keep horses, cattle and a fair number of barn cats. There’s a big barn at the ranch and in one corner is an enclosed tack room. When I first started this job five years ago the tack room was overrun with mice. And when trapping them became tedious, I finally opted for some mostly feral cats.
