Somewhere between becoming a mother and entering my thirties, I’ve become a chicken. That hasn’t stopped me from making some poor horse related decisions lately.  I purchased a Welsh-QH cross pony last year.  The purchase was almost entirely based on how cute he looked in tiny photo on the internet.  Who wouldn’t want a stocking-legged […]

The Fancy Boots

  Since I really had nothing better to do for the eight hours I was chained to a phone in a ten by ten foot cubicle, I sat on my butt staring at the floor, admiring the fancy stitching on my boots. I began questioning what in the world possessed me to purchase such a flamboyant […]

So you are dating a cowboy huh? I’m not talking about the weekend warrior rodeo kind either. I’m talking about the kind of cowboy that works on a real ranch, and has cowboy tan lines, and sleeps outside on occasion, and takes care of other business outside. If you are a ranch girl or an […]

“Here’s to strong women: may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them”. ~Unknown The older I get, and the more things I go through, the more I realize that I am grateful that my parents taught me to be kind, independent, to stand up for myself and my beliefs, and proved […]

September 14, 2015

Being of partial German descent probably predisposes me to a quick temper. Having a father that thinks I can read his mind, and expects that the job at hand has already been done, is probably the cause of my independent and controlling attitude. Being a part-time cowgirl with a lame horse that I can’t ride much, paired with […]

Sometimes on a ranch, the dogs serve a purpose, other than to be friends and companions, and sometimes they don’t. I think it depends on the outfit as to whether or not they actually want the help of a canine. Around here, the dogs are mostly useless, except for when it comes to chasing off […]

A Windy Morning Ride.

Here on the ranch, Saturdays start out like every other day; eggs in the frying pan and hot coffee before the husband pulls on some work-boots. He heads out to work, while I start scrubbing bathrooms and floors. Today though, I pulled on some boots and went with him. He needed to ride through pairs, […]
