Perry County, Kentucky is mostly mountainous, but if you drive far enough up a particular road, there's a place that looks like Texas: the sky suddenly opens, the land is flat and treeless, and cattle are grazing. There's even a cowboy, who really is from Texas and runs the cattle horseback, hat and all.

This place is D & D Ranch. It consists of 1,000 acres atop a reclaimed strip mine, and it's the home of the East Kentucky Heifer Development Project, which has helped local farmers improve their cattle herds for the last 17 years.
