With the holiday season in full swing, I've sent my wishlist to Santa, and I'm hoping that I make the "Nice List" and get to open a few gifts at Christmas. As a soon-to-be graduate, my wishlist is a mile long with essentials. In May, I will be on my own, earning a regular wage, renting my own apartment, and finding a way to stay in my parents' cattle operation. I need everything from furniture, to pots and pans, to a new car! (Email me for my mailing address if you are feeling exceptionally generous!) HA! The reason I'm sharing my wishlist with you today is that I think there is one thing on this list that might be the perfect gift for the cattle enthusiast in your life.
Have you checked out BEEF's limited edition Western Art Print Collection ? It's a collection of inspiring prints that capture unforgettable cowboy moments. Scenes include bonfires, horses, moving cattle, and of course, cowboys. Featured artists include Jim Norton, Jim Rey, Jack Sorenson, Mick B. Harrison, Tim Cox and many more. These limited edition prints  run for a steal at $100 plus tax and shipping. It's a great deal for the perfect artwork to hang above your mantle or in your office. Check them out, and let me know your favorites!
Santa may have a hard time fitting one of these in my stocking, so I might have to hit up Mom and Dad for one of these beautiful prints. Would it be considered parental propaganda to include my Christmas wishlist in a blog entry? How about you? What's on your wishlist this year?
This holiday season, I'm wishing all of you renewed faith, good health, the company of your friends and families and a great start to a successful year in the cattle business in 2009. Best wishes and God Bless!
