I called Pat Kearney, co-owner of Hondoo, a couple of months ago to see how Em was doing. “Well, she needs to get her driver’s license,” Pat told me right off the bat. “She can’t even move a vehicle across the yard legally right now. And she needs to learn what needs to be done and do it without bothering anybody. The first day here, she asked if she could go to the bathroom. And I said, ‘Yes, and don’t ever ask me that again. I got a business to run here.’ But she’s trying.” Pat’s like that. Most people who run ranches and farms are. Most of the better bosses in life are, too.
