Also see . . . Pratt Family. Sheepherding at the ranch declined after the death of Abraham Pratt in 1901. Fent and Tom pursued other business interests, and the sheep ranch rather quickly was converted to general farming. This transformation removed a strong British element, sheep, from the culture of the Studley community, but still fragments of the Old Country remained.
