That evening, in the privacy of our home, Kathryn told me that when she and the kids walked over to the corrals, she was surprised to see a pressurized water system with hoses to sprinkle the corrals, in order to keep the dust down. She said the sheep got water piped into the corrals, but we humans had to carry water from the well. I told her that after we’d been here awhile, I’d learn a few things, but I couldn’t agitate about getting water piped into the houses until I knew the whole situation.

Will counseled me that one person, the tally-master, was assigned to empty the pens about every forty-five minutes. He counted the sheep out of each pen, and recorded the number on the tally sheet tacked to each individual pen. That was how each shearer’s tally was kept. At the end of the day, the shearer examined and signed his tally sheet. Naturally, each shearer got paid according to the count on his individual daily tally sheet. The overhead conveyor belt transported the freshly shorn and tied fleeces to the far end of the shearing shed, where the wool grader examined each fleece as it came off the conveyor and tossed it into the proper sack.

It couldn’t have happened any better. From then on, they believed my count. Other than coyote kills, losses were light. In addition to the quarter of a million acres of mostly private range included in the Home Ranch, the company had a permit to graze three herds of about a thousand ewes each, plus their lambs, on the Cache National Forest. This area was north of the private range, but south and east of Monte Cristo. These three herds grazed on forest land for only a couple of months and then were brought back inside the boundary fence.
