The man behind Yellowstone’s own lovable ranch hand Lloyd, Forrie J Smith, is making sure to thank American farmers for the incredible work they do.

In addition to looking authentic, TV’s top drama, Yellowstone employs authentic actors, too. The show’s creator, Taylor Sheridan, works tirelessly to make every fabric of the show realistic. This is hard, grueling work. One actor on the show in particular, however, knows this all too well.

Forrie J Smith is known to Yellowstone audiences simply as Lloyd. And he’s a real life cowboy. A long-time Hollywood stunt man and actor, Yellowstone is Smith’s first big break as a series regular. As a result of this good fortune, he continues to pay it forward and remember those working hardest in America.

Forrie J. Smith Thanks American Farmers

Taking to Instagram, Smith wants to thank his own family – and all other American farmers – for keeping America fed. In addition to working through crippling snow, farmers have a hard life in general.

“Check out this Truck full of snow!” Smith posts with a clear photo. “Thinking of my brother and aunt taking care of my horses in this fall/winter snowfall.”

“I want to Thank all the farmers and ranchers that deal with this weather year after year to keep America fed!

Forrie J Smith is a fine man for doing so, too. Having lived this hardship himself, he knows that farmers are often overlooked. American farmers are vital to our economy and the world’s economy.

As Lloyd, he hold’s one of Yellowstone’s most memorable lines, as well. And it pertains directly to this tribute.

“Rough business becoming a man, ain’t it? Beats the alternative, though.”

Keep on keepin’ on, Forrie!
