In his autobiography Gollings wrote, “Spring came and I wanted to punch cows, but I had no outfit. I took a sheep herding job about ninety miles north of Belle Fourche.

All this country was worth living in; there were antelope in abundance on the prairie and deer in the hills besides wolves and coyotes aplenty. It all seemed a paradise to me. The whole country seemed to belong to the big cow outfits alone; there were very few sheep and horses and the grass waved over all this land.”
