Tony Vagneur’s work as a rancher wasn’t affected by the stay-at-home order. Vagneur calls himself a “freelance rancher,” raising cattle in Castle Creek and horses in Emma and working the Diamond W ranch, headquartered in Woody Creek.
Vagneur said he kept riding his horse, and working in his hayfields.
What changed, however, was how he interacted with his loved ones.
“There’s nothing I love better than to see my grandkids run up and jump and I catch them in the air and give them a big hug,” he said. “Can't do that anymore.”
