Heritage

Friday, July 20, 2012

lots of people look the same from generation to generation..... and lots of folks call them several things like.... "look a like" ...
"two of a kind".... "peas in a pod"... well have you ever really sat back to watch and learn why they look so much a like???

At cow camp this spring I got the chance to be around several father son, father daughter, and 3 generations of families. Just like most families, you could see lots of resemblance from Grandpa to Grand Son, and Great Grandpas to Grand Daughters......... From the wrinkles in their smiles, to the twinkle in their eyes..... from the callous on their hands to the wear in their boots...


Why do you think this is?? There is new blood mixed at each generation.....


Heritage....

That's what comes to mind..... Little boys always want to look the same, walk the same, and ride the same as their Daddy...
Well there ya go!!


Lots of looks can be passed on, but its not all in the looks... its in their actions... the way they carry a rope, sit a horse, manners towards a lady (which start with Momma), and the way they take pride in their gear.  These are things that young cowboys spend hours on hours.... even days onto years practicing..... Kind of brings a smile to my face thinking about all the little ones I have watched over the years learn to spit, not that they needed to but their Daddy just did, so that must mean they should..... You know just the same as any kid would watch and study their Super Hero.... they learn all their actions inside and out.... well by the looks of these photos below you can tell who the Heroes are.....


Here are a few of the families we worked with this spring... Thank you to each and everyone of the Grand Fathers, Fathers, and kiddos who let me learn something from their family heritage.....
 

They say pictures are worth a thousand words......

Well let these pictures tell the stories.....
