"Grass, Mustangs and Cowboy Wisdom" with Alan Day
This episode is a conversation with H. Alan Day from July 1, 2016. Alan is a rancher, a cowboy and an author, and he has many wise reflections to share with the world.
In this episode we talk about Alan's efforts to help the wild mustangs and to sustainable systems for the long term health of the wild horses and of grass. The conversation takes us into various important themes, like: How do we create sustainable living systems when we have finite resources? How do we work with populations that are traumatized by the behavior of those that came before us? How do we find the unique purpose in each of our lives that inspires us to contribute to the world?
Alan has a few books out. The Horse Lover is about his work with the wild mustangs. He also co-authored a book with his sister, Sandra Day O'Connor, called Lazy B. Alan's next book, full of stories, is called Cowboy Up! Life Lessons from Lazy B, and you can pre-order it here.
