    Doug Ray might not be in when potential customers stop by to view his livestock.

    His number is posted on the outside of Duke’s Tack Shop in Stephensburg in case he’s visiting friends at the gym, fishing or otherwise enjoying his retirement.

    “It’s a sad way to run a business, but it’s an old-man business,” he said.

    The 70-year-old began running the store about 10 years ago and raising geese, horses, donkeys and goats to fill his retirement hours.
