Trilogy Part 3: Have You Herd?

Logic Grid puzzles come with a handy interactive grid that will help you solve the puzzle based on the given clues.


Puzzle ID:#24611
Fun:*** (3.06)
Difficulty:*** (2.73)
Submitted By:cinnamon30Aca****!!




Note: You will need the answers from Trilogy Part 1 and 2 to complete this logic grid.

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.

The trilogy is a great idea, and Part 3 cost me many hours and many cups of coffee! Very, very good!
Jul 19, 2005

loved the whole thing...thanks for explaining which clue answered what...this is a big help for us new to this!!!
Jul 19, 2005

Your Trilogy was so well written and so fun. Thanks so much. Please keep them coming
Jul 19, 2005

I loved the whole trilogy idea!! It was great fun! Please write more, you are awesome at these!
Jul 19, 2005

I almost got stuck on who went to the cookout versus the hayride, but finally got it! Great Teaser!
Jul 24, 2005

I really enjoyed your triology, and like the rest say, keep 'em coming
Aug 02, 2005

I love your teasers...unfortunately I think I've seen 'em all...looking forward to future gems...
Aug 04, 2005

Love, love, love it! I think it was really well-written and to have to go back and get the answers to I and II makes it much more fun. Sometimes when I think logic grids are all too easy for me, something like this comes along. It took me about 15 minutes of actual thought, instead of just checking boxes.

Thanx for the challenges. Makes my work day go by faster. Look forward to more.

Nov 11, 2005

Good Job!!!!! the third one was much harder than the other two but that is very good
Nov 17, 2005

I got it all right except for the cookout and they hayride. I switched them up. Good job! Great teaser!

Making us follow the clues for all three puzzles made solving them a whole lot more fun! Great topic!

The first two were a bit of a watse of time but this one was very nice.
Jul 11, 2006

I liked the whole Trilogy idea, and the fact that they all built on each other and the difficulty level kept increasing. Thanks and keep them coming.
Dec 02, 2006

I love the trilogy idea. Maybe you could continue the adventures of the ranchers, still using the previous clues? I know that "trilogy" means "three", but I'm sure Lucas knew that too and look what happened to Star Wars!
Great teaser.
Jul 01, 2007

You've done an amazing job on these, cinnamon! I've really enjoyed them because they're the right amount of difficulty, original, and well-written. Hope you'll write another trilogy soon.
Jan 02, 2008

The trilogy idea was great! This one was really difficult! I thought I had it solved correctly and checked my answers and I was actually quite wrong!

Maybe we'll see another Triology Teaser soon?
Feb 11, 2011

Excellent series!
Mar 26, 2011

Like it!
Feb 15, 2012

Loved these! I had done the first two and never got back to the third until today. Love how they all stack up!
Mar 05, 2014

Very challenging.

I found the parts of clues 2 and 3 that referred to the rodeo and the barn dance to be ambiguous, I think in each case it could have referred to 2 different people or ranches.

Otherwise, very good.
