This is the view from the top of my horse on this beautiful day on this beautiful ranch on the 15th day of September, 2013  It is the harbinger of fall. I have a new camera. It’s slung over my shoulder. One hand on the reins. One hand on the camera. Looking down at the […]

  A Mirage I’ve lived here for 8 months now.  About a month ago I discovered this pond. Which is about 100 yards from the front door of my cabin.  I’m not the most observant person in the world.  In my defense, I knew there was “a pond” over there. I just didn’t know it […]

  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 […]

  It turns out my new life isn’t so different from my old life. Not surprising, considering I only moved “next door”. “Next door” being a couple of miles away with only grass, trees, hills and creeks in between. Still cattle and horses and “ranchey” stuff that I love. But it’s more than that. I’m […]

We finished all that moving last week. And I hurt. Physical pain is a welcome relief. It can be fixed with a couple Aleve and day’s rest. Life goes on. I’m actually quite pleased with myself. I’m stronger than I thought I was. I do wonder , though. What’s my new normal going to look […]

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the past few weeks contemplating how I was going to get my things moved out of the McMansion with no help in sight.  You see, my stuff is on the 3rd floor and there are no stairs. No stairs inside or outside. No sign of any coming […]

  Last Saturday my friend Laura and I were going to spend the day riding and working our cowdogs. When I got to her place, the wind was howling and it was cold. She said “Let’s go to Yoder for the Amish Horse Auction instead”. I was all in for that. I’m posting this today […]

 Since receiving our pink slip from T.H., I decided it was best to move Playboy and Blitz over to my temporary home while we wait for our severance pay.  The neighbor’s ranch where I’m living has a nice barn and stalls. I hauled some hay and got them settled. (sort of) I was all singing […]
