My life is like this jacket right now.   I feel like a  discombobulated cowgirl riding a tornado. Yeehaw! Instead of Pecos Bill, I’m Pecos Jill!   My feet hurt and now I know why so I bought this bracelet cuff online. My new motto.     We started calving on the exact same […]

For me 2016 was the Year of the Cow.  I was able to fulfill  a life dream of owning my own Red Angus cow herd.  I bought 140 first calf heifers exactly a year ago. We brought them home and proceeded to calve them out here on the ranch. We also have some Black Angus […]

Yesterday I performed the dreaded task of re-applying for health insurance for 2017. I was notified by Blue Cross Blue Shield and HealthCare.gov that they were not offering my plan for 2017 and I needed to update my application and choose a new plan.  I received that notice in September.  The deadline is tomorrow.  Do […]

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. […]

This morning I was supposed to ride the north end of this pasture where we turned the cattle into yesterday.  Remember yesterday?  We started at the very end of the horizon of these big ugly power lines.   This is a pasture that we lease. Maybe we would feel different if we got the money […]

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 […]

Last Saturday I found my tribe. I took Cowgirl-Red to Woodward Oklahoma for a Women’s Ranch Rodeo.  It was sponsored by the 1000 Hills Ranch Church.  They put on western events throughout the year, but this one is very dear to my heart.  These are my home girls. My tribe. These are 4-woman teams of real […]

If “Cowgirl-Red” married “Dia de los Muertos”  that’s what you would get. Ladies and Gentlemen, I announce the birth of ……… “El Gringo Cowboy” “cowboy” pronounced  “kuh-BOY “ Say it now…… El Gringo Cowboy ! If I had a little cowgirl or cowboy close by I could use them for a model. That would be what […]

Everyone has a dream. I’ve had many.   About 7 years ago I started “Cowgirl-Red”. I wasn’t sure where she was going to go.   I set goals. I got coaching. I planned. I blogged. I sewed. I lived my crazy life.  Cowgirl-Red is pretty much just like me. (Actually, she is me.)  She pretty much […]

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 […]
