Do any of you watch, or have watched Heartland? It's a Canadian family drama series about a horse ranch in the Alberta foothills. We are watching it on Netflix now and just started season 4. I'm really enjoying it. Good, clean entertainment. Quite a few cool old GM trucks in it too. The granddad and family patriarch has a 71 or 72 Chevy pickup he has owned since new. He eventually retires it to the barn lot and gets a 79 or 80 Chevy 3/4 ton to replace it. He also has a 74 - 78, or so, 1-ton dually flatbed. A young guy named Ty who comes to the ranch to live and work has a sweet 57 GMC 9300 pickup. In the back ground of some scenes is a rusty 54 Chevy. Last night I saw a blue 64 - 66 Chevy pickup parked at the ranch that I had not seen before. I think it had a big back window. One scene shows a man driving a red 65 - 67 Dodge or Fargo pickup. Of course lots of modern Chevys and Fords, and other makes. Also lots of beautiful horses and beautiful countryside.

I tried to watch it a few times. Totally agree the scenery is Nice. However I'm getting increasingly more cynical and opinionated as time passes and just can't bring myself to watch all the drama over issues that would be settled without a second thought in real life. We don't have a ranch as such, but do have a few horses and raise and bale our own hay. The storybook presentation of things I've been around my entire life falls short. But that's just me. I find very little these days that doesn't fall into the just described slot.

I guess I will have to join Ron in the Grinch Line. I had to LIVE the horses and livestock saga. Not near as romantic as in the movies to be out chopping cattle drinking holes in the ice in 15 below weather and with a horse that will bolt for the warm barn if given one iota of a chance. As far as scenery, my wife and I drove down the spine of the Grand Tetons in our old 37 Buick and when she asked me my thoughts I told her that with a big enough crew and a fleet of D-9's I could level them out into something useful. My wife, a city girl, loves the show.

Funny, first time we visited the Grand Canyon I told the wife that with a enough water brakes and cover crops we could turn that erosion problem around. Yep, I got "The Look".

Since then we've rode mules to the bottom and spent the night at Phantom Ranch. If any have ever considered doing same, I highly recommend it. There is a 200 lb. weight limit and you gotta step on the scales before you ride. Also, it really helps if you do ride ahead of the trip, but certainly not a requirement. Just means less sore muscles at the bottom.

I agree that some of the plot devices are overly melodramatic. And versions of the same dilemma are repeated.
