The Purdys and Picabo Livestock: Journal Entry 14

Today, Bill and Dallas meet with the Purdy’s to learn about the history of this magnificent ranch. It has been in the family for more than 120 years. I end up babysitting Blackie, allowing him to graze on the lush green grass that he loves so much. I also have Millie with me. She is playing in a creek. I think this is the first time she has been exposed to live water and she sure loves it. This pup doesn’t have much fear of anything except those large, loud trucks on the road. We are in a beautiful spot by the famed Silver Creek. Earnest Hemingway loved to fish here and we are told that this is world-class fly fishing.

Dallas is filming the conversation and clips of this will eventually be available for viewing. If you would like to know more of the history of this wonderful ranch, you can contact the Silver Creek store for a copy of the book. “It’s in the Blood, The Story of the Kilpatrick Brothers.” Written by Chris Millspaugh, and Jean Swartling.
