  4. I have a pointed story about my herd for every occasion.
  5. I’m always fiddling with something with my hands, perhaps carving.

  1. Responsibility. I will take care of my charges, even when there’s no help around or nobody looking.

  3. Greater Good. Everyone has to do their part.
  4. Might. You gotta be tough to succeed in this business.
  5. Adapt. Every range and every season is different. You have to keep up with what’s happening

  2. I fell asleep and the herd was slaughtered and stolen.
  3. I talk incessantly, and I can hardly keep a secret.
  4. I love a good, stiff drink. Or two. Three would be excellent.
  5. I am proud, and resist attempts to help me.
