Our World – The Fricking Frackers, Bison, and Longhorns of Woolaroc

Son and I went on another road trip Saturday.


First, SuperPizzaBoy does his weekly session with All Star Therapy Group. Here he riding the barrel racing pattern with Seven. Then it was off to Frank Phillip’s Woolaroc (Frank is the guy who started Phillips Petroleum way back when. He has been gone since 1950 or so but his company goes on. Woolaroc is his old ranch and museum. It is a heck of a place.)


When we got to the entrance it was a zoo. I’d never seen so many people. They told us at the gate that Phillips Petroleum was having their annual employee picnic. So we paid our admission and joined the fricking frackers of Phillips Petroleum at Woolaroc. (Note, I’m a big fan of fricking frackers.)


It was stop and go from the highway to the parking lot. The bison were wondering what the heck is going on.


Well at least some of them were. The rest were like ho hum.


This guy is all depressed looking for some reason.


There were some Texas Longhorns at the ranch.


I mean if you were a Texas Longhorn confined deep in Oklahoma Sooner country you’d be depressed also.


In the barn, the llama was bemused. He had never seen so many fricking frackers and fricking fracker family members.


The deer were on point also. If the bambi’s are not afraid of fricking frackers why should you be?

Later, I’ll post some pics from inside the museum. If you love western art, you’ll love Woolaroc.

    Frick and Frack, not to be confused with Click and Clack the tappet brothers. Woolaroc is one of my favorite places in the whole world. Every time we go there I something new.

    SPB always looks so relaxed on a horse. That’s great. I had occasion to meet a beautiful horse yesterday called Trooper. I got to stroke his kneck. Loved being up so close to one of these beautiful animals. Great pictures Yogi, loved all the wildlife too.

    I saw your comment on another blog. I like the picture of your son on the horse. I used to go horseback riding every Sunday when I was growing up in France, and now that I live in the US I have barely been on a horse. I also like your pictures. The picture of the sunset on the river in your earlier post was stunning.

    I think SPB is about ready for the rodeo! I think it’s cool how the two of you have so many adventures. The bison are awesome!

    Reading through your blog was like listening to our news! It’s full of fricking fracking and those who are really against any fracking in their backyard. I can sit on the fence on this one as I don’t live near a site – very sorry for those who do though.
    Those bison and longhorns are superb animals – what a change from the bulls, cows and sheep one see in English countryside.
