Breakin’ Nintendo

One of the questions I get most often is about my oldest son, and that's "How does he break horses?".  Since he recently started a colt, I thought I'd share with you day 1 of breakin' Nintendo, his Dad's horse.  And if you're wondering why his name is Nintendo....this is why. He's branded with DS.  I thought my husband was clever with the name, ... Continue Reading

Fire Update: All Food Ruined but Could Be Worse

Fire Update: Man, it's been a long 6 days.  I'll try to give you a brief rundown of things.  In 6 days, over 80,000 acres burned, hotspots still flaring up, no power still, and about $1000 worth of our food ruined.  Fun times here on the ranch. Well, I know how tired I am so I can only imagine how tired those firefighters are.  I know my husband ... Continue Reading

Cowpoke Underpants, The Horse Whisperer

Oh Truett...he reminds me so much of oldest brother that it's like I'm watching Tyler grow up all over again.  Truett loves horses, loves the outdoors and loves to ride.  Sometimes he just pulls his little chair onto the front porch and sits and watches the horses outside.  It's the sweetest thing ever. When the horses come close to the ... Continue Reading

Whiskey

We got a new horse and Tyler's havin' fun ridin' him.   He was a little fresh the first day but we think he was a little spoiled is all.  He pitched a little on his first ride but nothing bad at all, definitely nothing Tyler couldn't handle.  For photo purposes, I was hoping for a more bronc-y ride but oh well. Maybe the next colt he rides will ... Continue Reading

Little Man Packin’ his Saddle

The last time I used this vintage look, I got people telling me how hot my 15yr old son (14 at the time) was....ew.  Anyways, I thought it would make for a cute photo using the vintage style on my little man who was struggling to keep a hold of that saddle.  He kept saying, " I do it, I do it".  LOVE HIM! ...

Git Cattle Git

Instead of roundin' them up, he's shooing them away. Little man thinks it's his job to shoo the cattle away every time they come near the house; I think he does a fine job at it! And the shooing begins.... Git, psst, git! Are you talkin' to me? Oh it's on like Donkey Kong! Called for extra backup;) ... Continue Reading

Windmill, Turbines, and Water Troughs

Checking waters are a normal chore on a ranch.  Don't got water, the cows can't drink it right?  Sometimes they don't need fixin' but they need cleaning and with the kind of water troughs you see below, it makes it super easy to clean.  They have a drain that gets almost all the water but then you have to scrape the mossy scum on the ...
