Thursday Morning. We got a better start at daylight.  I only had one cup of coffee in bed. Then saddled up and long trotted about 2 miles through our place and across our neighbors pasture that we lease.  I met up with our cowboys for the day (Day Riders).  They are also our good friends. […]

  In my antics last fall riding with the cowboys, I have collected some more “Most Embarrassing Moments”. (More will be revealed later)  However, none can top the original …….. yet.   This was originally posted as a guest post for my friend Suzanne aka “Fairchild Farmgirl” .
