For brand inspector Chad Moore, horseback beats an office chair any day

Chad Moore, a brand inspector, watches from horseback Thursday as cattle are herded for inspection near Oxford, east of the Durango-La Plata County Airport. Some inspections take place on horseback, others on foot, he said.
On Thursday, Moore surveyed a herd of Shane Truby’s cattle, which bear this brand.
Brand Inspector Chad Moore is responsible for inspecting livestock, tracking illness and contamination incidents, and returning missing or stolen animals to owners in La Plata, San Juan and Archuleta counties, as well as parts of Hinsdale and Mineral counties.
“It’s not a terrible job,” said brand inspector Chad Moore while waiting for a cattle rancher to arrive for a herd inspection near Oxford.
