The five cowboys are just about done chewing the fat for the day and are ready to return to their ranches. Each man owns a different ranch (one is the Rolling T Ranch), no two of which are the same size (3000, 3500, 4000, 4500 and 5000 acres). Each man raises a different type of cattle on his ranch and every year he hosts a different event (including an autumn hayride) on his sizable spread. All in all, it's good to be home on the range! From the info provided, can you determine the size of the ranch owned by each rancher, the type of cattle each rancher raises and the special event each man hosts annually?

Men - Carl Lovelace, Hank Brooks, Pablo Sanchez, Rusty Ewing, Zeke McCool
Ranch - Circle Star, H Bar, Lazy K, Rolling T, Square Z
Size - 3000, 3500, 4000, 4500 and 5000 acres
Cattle - Brangus, Hereford, Lourdais, Shorthorn, Simmental
Event - Auction, Barn Dance, Cookout, Hayride, Rodeo

1. The H Bar ranch (which is owned by Mr. McCool) is exactly 500 acres smaller than the one housing a herd of Hereford Cattle.

2. The man wearing Sunset boots (who raises Brangus cattle) isn't the cowboy who owns the Square Z ranch (who hosts an annual rodeo).

3. The ranch housing a herd of Lourdais cattle is exactly 500 acres smaller than the spread owned by the man wearing a calico shirt (who hosts an annual springtime barn dance).

4. The cowboy in position D (who owns the largest ranch) isn't the man who hosts an annual charity auction (who raises Shorthorn cattle).

5. Neither the rancher wearing Oil Baron boots nor the owner of the Lazy K ranch is the one who raises Hereford cattle.

6. The Circle Star ranch isn't the one that houses a herd of Simmental cattle. Mr. Sanchez doesn't host the annual rodeo.

7. Hank isn't the owner of the 3500-acre ranch. The annual summer cookout isn't the event held at the 4000-acre ranch.
