Spending lots of time on a Wyoming ranch taught Dana to be tough and independent.

Dana Perino spent much of her childhood in rural Wyoming, on her grandparents’ ranch. Her father’s grandparents were Italian immigrants who’d grabbed the American dream by the horns; for them, and for Dana, too, the ranch was a symbol of freedom.

Not just that, but living on the ranch taught Dana the importance of always lending a hand. Even though it wasn’t always fun, Dana and her sister helped out with all the chores: filling water tanks, opening gates, collecting eggs and keeping the calves fed during winter.

Sometimes Dana had to overcome her fears in order to help out.

For instance, gathering chicken eggs frightened Dana. The coop was dark and smelly, and the hens would peck at her hands when she tried to take the eggs. But she did it anyway. Life in rural Wyoming was rough, and everyone had to pull his or her own weight. Learning to overcome her fears and pitch in proved a valuable lesson later in Dana’s life.

Ranch life taught Dana other important lessons, too. For instance, that it’s essential to be both tough and gentle. When she was about eight years old, Dana and her sister were in the truck with their grandfather when they noticed that one of the horses had a broken leg. The huge animal was whimpering and clearly in a lot of pain.

Dana’s grandfather got out of the car, grabbed his rifle and told the two little girls to stay in the truck with their heads down. Dana snuck a peak anyhow, and watched as her grandfather shot the horse.

As they drove away, he rested his hand on her knee and squeezed it gently, showing her he knew how she felt. It was then that Dana realized that tenderness and strength are like peas in a pod.
