Bob West was a successful architect, working in the Denver area. He even owned a couple of horses stabled near Boulder, Colorado. But he couldn’t ignore the lure of the cowboying and ranching life. After he and his wife bought the Devil’s Washtub Ranch in Wyoming and relocated the family, he soon discovered that ownership of two horses does not equal twenty miles of fence, 3,200 deeded acres, 400 BLM acres, 154 head of black angus, and two and a half miles of the North Laramie River. The author of “Twenty Miles of Fence,” Bob West speaks with Russell and Alan about how he dealt with unanticipated challenges and why he's never looked back.
