About this title


In the mid 1960s my family and I went to the last Hollister Estate Company branding held on the Las Cruces Ranch near Gaviota. The Hollister family members had recently voted to sell their four ranches comprising some 32,000 acres in the southern part of the county. The property was now in escrow with a land company that would break it up and eventually subdivide most of it into 100-acre ranchettes. A large herd of Hereford cows and calves had been gathered in the back part of the valley, and it seemed like everyone I knew or had heard about in Santa Barbara ranching circles was there watching or taking part in the final branding: Bill and Nancy Luton, Frank Pacheco, Pida and Helen Pedotti, Alice and Duke Sedgwick, Vincent Ortega, Dibblee Poett, Bill and Margaret Cooper, Clinton and Cynthia Hollister, and Charlie Sudden are just a handful that I can recall now. This big social occasion marked the end of an era.
