Being a Cowboy-Girl

Ever see those window stickers on a big 4WD truck that says ‘Silly Boys, Trucks are for Girls’? Well,  I’ve seen a handful in my day. I have had many people tell me I should slap one on my truck and I, tactfully as possible, told them, no thank you, those are corny. I have […]

Well, it’s official.  Winter has finally decided to make it’s appearance in Montana. The big question for many winter residing horse owners is; to blanket or not to blanket my horse? My feelings are that blanketing your horse depends on several different variables.  Here are four of the main circumstances that come to mind: 1. […]


The Third Ride

I thought I’d start sharing some videos I took this past winter, when I started one of my colts. I’ve since sold this colt – he’s gone on to a very handy,  West River Cowboy. He’d had him a couple weeks, rode him maybe once, and went and roped and doctored a yearling bull on him. […]


Working over a Tarp

One of the things I love to do with my colts, and even older horses, is challenge them to “get with me”.  I want them to realize that as an effective leader for them, I’ll not “lead” them astray; that they can trust my judgement. If we do not become effective leaders for our horses, […]

My dad asked me this morning where he could find the contestant list for this year’s National Finals Rodeo.  I said, “Hold on Dad. I’ll find it quick and email it to Mom.”  Well, it didn’t really happen as quick as I’d like it to.  So, I figured we’d better post this exciting information here.  […]


WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WAY

One smart ranch horses figures out how to ride, not trot, home from the pasture.

Many years ago when I worked on a big outfit in New Mexico, an incident occurred that has stuck in my mind for all these years. One early morning a crew of us were sent to the top of the mesa to a rough, rocky pasture that was pretty thick with cedars to gather some […]

I’m back with more safety tips for the road! We will just continue down the list we started previously. 6. Keep a good, working, heavy duty jack in your pickup or trailer (where it is accessible even if your horses are in the trailer).  I have a big, heavy, timber that is made so that […]

Hauling Horses, Part 1

October 27, 2014

I’ve hauled several hundred thousand miles, just me, my dogs and my horses (and my dad, when I was a teenager). I started pulling my horses behind me, nearly as soon as I got my driver’s license.  As such, I’ve become quite adept at handling things that can go wrong when traveling, and how to […]

Here some simple tips to make your photos stand out when you are selling horses online, or in a paper. You may have a great-looking horse, but if the picture is bad, it won’t get much interest. You might think you are not a good photographer, but trust me, even an amateur can take nice […]
