About Keith

M.S. – Rangeland Ecology and Watershed Management (University of Wyoming)
B.S. – Range Management (Texas Tech University)

Keith’s work experience has included working with various land resources, most specifically focused on rangelands. His diversity of knowledge on rangeland, grassland, and pasture ecosystems, stems from past research, consulting, and education he has provided across many parts of the United States, working with private landowners and public agencies to aid in the development of land stewardship and management. Much of Keith’s teaching allows students to be “in-the-field”, gathering knowledge in the natural setting. Keith is a member of the Wyoming Section Society for Range Management, past Director of the international Society for Range Management (2010-2013) and currently serves on administrative committees with this same organization. He is also on the Sheridan Chamber of Commerce Ag and Natural Resources Committee.

About Steve

Steve was raised on a ranch in central Montana and since an early age has had an interest in horses and cattle. He attended farrier school at Oklahoma State University and since that time has been a professional farrier.

Steve helped develop the testing standard for the American Farrier’s Association and has served as an examiner and as chairman of their certification committee.

Steve feels it is important that the knowledge of horses, farrier practice, and blacksmithing be passed on to the next generation of farriers. “We all stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us!” is Steve’s favorite quote.
