These South Dakota Skies

Posted in: Featured, Ranch Life

The weather here has been gorgeous for August. We’ve had daytime temps in the 60s! Yes, I said 60s.  And the skies, the South Dakota Skies have been amazing. As I write this, it’s currently 50 degrees. Yes, I said Fifty.

Now that I’m back from nearly 5 weeks on the road, I’m catching up on my sleep, mail, and other work. I don’t know how these girls that make it to the NFR do it — oh wait, most of them probably have drivers so they can sleep and stuff! I’ve gotten to run about the ranch, pulling stallions, riding horses and otherwise enjoying my life.

Gossip at the water tank isn't just for people. Under the gorgeous skis the horses have discussions about why they're headed to the corral in the middle of the dang day they were sure they had off!

Gossip around the water cooler isn’t just for humans, don’tcha know?

Fluffy clouds

Fluffly Clouds, Grass and Horses. These skies make my heart go pitter-pat.

Horses graze quietly in a gorgeous, serene setting.

Cloudy Skies.

Broodmares look on as we pull their range stallion from the herd.

Windy Skies.

These mares just got moved from their summer pasture and turned out to their winter pasture.

I don’t know about you, but fluffly clouds, blue skies, and colorful horses sure do make me smile. These images were all captured with my iPhone over the past few days as I’m back to running about the ranch aka, my regularly scheduled programming.

Happy Trails!
