We wanted to share the history behind our brand and where it
originated. In the early 1900ís Craigís great grandfather, Neils Peter
Anderson, drove a freight wagon between Price, Utah and Myton, Utah. The trip was around 60 miles each way.
With a distance that far and the heavy freight wagons, there were several
places along the way to change out the team of horses. Pete Anderson had four
young boys and on occasion they would ride in the wagon with their dad on these
trips. On one trip Pete pulled into the station to change the team of horses
and the four boys were all asleep in the back of the wagon. The station master
was amused at the boys and their laziness. On the next trip the boys did not
accompany their father and when he pulled into the station, the station master
asked where the four lazy Peteís were as he didnít know the four boys names?
Great Grandpa Anderson was so tickled by the comment, he decided to make a
brand representing the four lazy Peteís. He started branding his sheep and
cattle with the 4 Lazy P brand. He passed the brand down to his son Eugene
Anderson and he in turn passed it to his grandson, Craig Steele. The brand has
been in the family over 100 years. We plan on passing it to our children and
grandchildren in hopes the brand will stay in the family for many more
