Somewhere along the line I got derailed from blogging about everyday ranch life.  So here is my attempt to get back in the habit.  I really enjoyed blogging. It was fun. And sometimes I was funny. Yesterday we needed to get some pairs in and doctor some sore eyes. The calves get sore eyes from […]

I flew to California last week to visit my girl. As I was leaving the house for the airport, I looked over at my cowboy hat and thought “Why not?”  I’ve always thought that flying with my hat would be a pain, and it is. However,  those of you who know me know how attached […]

Picture this …….. Super Moon. 5:30 AM alarm Catch ’em. Feed ’em.  Saddle ’em. Load ’em in the dark. Meet up with the cowboys. Gather ’em. Sort ’em and work ’em. In my former life as an accountant with an 8-5, I found it consistently difficult getting to work on time. (for 20 years) I’ve […]

We are on the other side of some wicked winter weather. When I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago, all I could think of was ……. Yuck!  But today, I’m thinking something else. Gratitude. I was walking to the barn to feed and it was cold and blowing snow.  I usually take the […]

I’m a Snapshooter. I looked it up.  “Snapshooter:  a person who takes snapshots.” That would be me.  I think Snapshot-ographer is more like it. I do not take photographs. I take snapshots. Snapshot: a casual photograph made typically by an amateur with a small hand-held camera. Or in my case…. an iPhone holstered to my hip […]

  This might be the second “Most Embarrassing Moment in Agriculture” but pales in comparison to #1  So picture this….. I get invited to go help two good-looking cowboys get some cattle in to sort the calves off to go to the sale barn then take the mother cows to a different pasture. Picture me trying […]

  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” . It is the benchmark by which all others […]

I ride a lot. Which means I think a lot. My favorite subject …….. no surprise…. Cowboys. I know what you’re thinking. And you’re right. I think about “that” a lot. But not today.  Today I’m thinking about real cowboys and how they handle their horses. And how much I love watching them. How lucky […]

  I turned these two goof-balls out in a big pasture with my friend’s heifers. (Heifers are young cows that have not had a calf yet…. for you ranch virgins) Being that these guys are “cow horses” she did comment …. “They won’t chase the heifers will they?” I’ve been asked that before.  And it’s […]

  I looked up “Badass” in the Urban Dictionary and there was a picture of my friend, Jenn. Every time she rides up on her Harley I get so excited I can hardly stand it. She is the most badass girl I know. I really didn’t know what badass meant. I’ve heard it used so many times by […]
