Good afternoon, guys.
Here in beautiful Montana.
Have a very interesting
story for you today
and that is the tension
between ranchers, who own all this land
and developers that want to
subdivide and build.
Now that’s been going on
for a long time in Montana and the West
but the last two years
have really accelerated the process.
So today we have the great privilege
to meet with a local
who was a rancher and cowboy for 20 years
but is now developing.
He said he knows the situation
inside and out.
Both sides of the argument.
Let’s go meet up with him
and learn what’s going on here.
Let’s do this.

PETER: Trinity?
-Nice to meet ya.
-Peter, nice to meet ya.
So my dad used to own all this property
right here where these houses are.
My dad actually had a head injury.
So he was completely disabled
for about 17 years.
I was involved in selling part of this
just to make it through that time period.
-That’s my dad and mother.
-Hello, sir.
WOMAN: Hi.
You see dad’s face over there?
He just got kicked by a horse
two days ago.
That’s why he’s all messed up.
-Can we go meet dad?
-Yeah.
He’s a character.
[door closes]
PETER: Rumor has it
you were kicked by a horse.
Yeah, a few times, yeah.
[chuckles]
We used to own from here all the way
down past where you see those houses.
