Summer 2022 - 4R Ranch Newsletter

Summer 2022 - 4R Ranch Newsletter

August 11, 2022 by Deryl McKinnerney

Hot and dry! This is no new news for those of you who live in the great state of Texas, but wow!  Living on the edge of the Chihuahuan Desert can be humbling at times, and this is one of those times. Back in 2010-2011 when the last drought broke, a wise old man (my father) told me that if I were lucky, I’d live long enough to see another drought. He was right, and so goes life in the Texas Hill Country.

Summer Update 4R Ranch Newsletter

June 22, 2020 by Deryl McKinnerney

Hello to all our friends in the 4R Family!  I trust this note finds you healthy, safe and enjoying your summer. Jill and I are currently in New Mexico where you would be hard pressed to be any farther away from madness of The Three "Ps": Pandemic, Protests and Politics. The greatest asset any small community possesses is independence. Independence in this sense is from all the chaos that is ensuing in the larger urban areas of our Country. Masks are minimal, tourists are flocking to the mountains in droves and spirits are high.

Spring 2020 4R Ranch Newsletter

April 24, 2020 by Deryl McKinnerney

Hello to all our friends in the 4R Family. I trust this letter finds all of you healthy and safe. I have been sending out newsletters for 16 years and I can safely say the timing of this letter finds all of us in a common harbor of uncertain times. As I discussed with my father earlier this week, we are living in 24-hour windows. Not by design, but by the daily reporting of numbers. Are there more cases, less cases, flattening curve or still moving upward? All these questions lead to further questions and at the end of that line of questions, we still revert to the first question, what are the numbers saying? None of us have been here before and we are all looking at this through a different lens based on our life situation.

4R Ranch 2019 Summer Update

As decorated historian David McCullough most thoughtfully said History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are. The hay is in the barn, the cows are fat and we still have good cover in our pastures entering the hottest stretch of summer. Yes, Mother Nature has been kind to us in 2019 and for that we are most thankful.

Pick of The Litter

May 16, 2019 by Deryl McKinnerney

Going to buy Pointers in Tennessee is one of the weeks I hold in high anticipation each year. Injecting young dogs in our kennel is a necessity and I simply love looking at young talent. I am fortunate these days. I have been purchasing my Pointers from the same source for several years. Ross knows what I like, I love what he has, so the feeling out process between the two of us has long run its course. Now when I show up to look at dogs, Ross has culled hard and has only the crème of the crop to show me.
