Cattle Ranch Quotes By Pamela Clare

Cattle Ranch Quotes By Jeannette Walls

The barn was dark from the storm, and we couldn't find the harness, which no one had used in years.

John's quick smile told her he approved. He led her to a lookout and waved an arm in a sweeping motion. "Our valley."
"Really?" Delighted, she leaned forward to take in the view. Grasslands studded with cattle surrounded a big white house, outbuildings, a barn, and two smaller homes. She studied the house.

The distant mountains still held snow on their peaks. Stark blue sky stretched over the land, with several puffy white clouds floating by. Our valley, she echoed. — Debra Holland

Dude looked ready to rustle cattle or something. At — Gena Showalter

When you go into a fast food restaurant, you may just think about how good your meal tastes while you're eating it.

Cattle Ranch Quotes By Melissa McClone

But if you marry me, I will do my best to make your life as ordinary as you'd like. — Melissa McClone
