Nancy Tries... The Country Life

If someone were to tell me I would spend an entire day working in a ranch, I would never believe them. I’m a born and bred city girl whose only farm experience was when I went on a classroom fieldtrip in the second grade to a local ranch with my classmates.  

So when Earl Elementary Principal Tami Truax invited me to shoot my next segment of “Nancy Tries…” on her ranch, I was certain it was going to be a challenge from the very start.

In the third segment of my “Nancy Tries…” series I strapped on my cowgirl boots and took a shot at living the country life at 4-T Ranch owned and operated by Tami Truax.
