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 […]

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 […]

   Puncher had puppies in May. Don’t worry, it was planned…. Sort of. My friend was visiting with her good and famous cow dog, Gus. Puncher came into heat and I was like ….. “Why not?”   Those two words might just be the most motivating factor of my long and interesting life. “Why not?” […]

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 […]

It’s been cold this week.  Not Wyoming cold, but Kansas cold. And it snowed. Not Wyoming snow, but Kansas snow. I stayed home one whole day just because I could. Then cabin fever set in and I ventured out to town. The little town (Sun City, pop 40), not the big town (Medicine Lodge, pop […]

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 […]
