Scenes From My Life

Posted in: Featured, Ranch Life

I realize I may be biased, but I’m fairly certain that I live in the prettiest place on earth. Second only to the high desert. I know, I’m weird. I’m in love with the tall grass prairie, but find beauty in Joshua Trees, yucca plants, saguaro cacti, and sagebrush. But, seriously. If you follow me on instagram, you know what I’m talking about. And in case you don’t, I’ve shared some of the beautiful scenes from our neck of the woods, below. Who doesn’t a love a good shot of cows between a horse’s ears? Or the sun setting over buttes, and casting long shadows on the ground? My life is amazing and I’m exceptionally fortunate. Now, I’ll share the good with you!  And I hope you don’t mind, but there’s plenty more where these came from, so stay tuned!

Having a hobble broke horse is certainly handy! Plus, it makes for pretty photographic fodder when the sun is getting low!

Finding a cow who lost her calf, provides plenty of opportunity to make good horses.

Happy Trails…
