Art spent all his years on the family ranch south of Ashby. During his younger years he helped Leroy, Raymond, Bill, and Cy Sutton, and Art Sowden to work cattle and other ranch jobs during the week, then on the weekends he would have the school aged kids from home help do the work that needed to be done on the ranch. He was a hard worker and loved his cows and horses. He could tell you what calf came from what cow clear back to her great-grandma and what bull it was out of. He raised work and riding horses all his life. He worked horses for years to feed the cows and hay with. He bought his first Simmental bull in 1967 from Leroy Sutton.
