During the summer 2017 I took a trip to western Kansas for a long-time client and photographed a couple of stories in the area. For one story I stopped in Clark County and photographed the Ashland Veterinarian Clinic for a story about how the clinic helped local farmers during and after a huge spring prairie fire devastated much of the livestock in the area. I followed Dr. Randall Spare to his ranch and took pictures of him while he fed his cows. His fences had been burned and he lost a fair number of cattle, but a neighbor used a tractor to cut a strip of dirt around Spare’s house and saved it from the fast-moving fires.
