2010 Reflections and 2011 Expectations

I always find it interesting to go through my posts and reflect on the year because I either realize that I wrote really great posts, really crappy posts, or just didn't blog much at all.  I was quiet this year here at A Cowboy's Wife because of all that I had going on everywhere else and on My Wooden Spoon.  Even so, I did manage to find a few ...

Ta-Da! Makeover Magic

The girls at the Oak St. Salon did a heck of job in my opinion! My hair dresser Kim felt so bad when she cut my hair but she shouldn't have. See, I told her to cut it off, of course after the pressure of everyone saying cut it off;) Anyways, it was after the cut when I broke down. It was so short and it was what I asked for but it was hard for ... Continue Reading

Men at Work

Well, the works here have come and gone and I didn't get hardly any pictures at all.  The weather was horrible and there was always something going on that seem to be at the same time as the brandings.  I decided to pick out a few of my favorites and share those with ya.  I edited all of these, well, because they needed it.  Luckily I didn't have ...

A Beautiful Evening

I don't have a tripod so my sunset is a bit blurry but still worth looking at.  There was no wind yesterday evening and it's was warm.  I could have sat there all night, in fact, had I had some camping gear I might have slept outside all night.  I've been having some back problems the last few days so I haven't got out to take any pics.  I thought ...

Unique in Their Own Way

Just a random post today.  I've got some house cleaning to do and won't be on the computer much today.  I thought I'd post a photo of each of my loves.  They are all tired and filthy but still cute.  They all are so unique and it's always interesting to see what they're gonna say or do next. Da' Man is drinking a beer after a long day at work.  ... Continue Reading

I’m Baaaack

Elmer is Da Man

You know, Elmer really is a beautiful horse.  He's huge with a golden mane and tail and he really is a 'Gentle Giant'.  Our friends we're here this weekend and when she called him this, I knew it was the perfect nickname.  ... Continue Reading


There will be no rambling roundup today.  I've got too much on my plate right now and frankly, I just don't have time to go around and find interesting posts.  Sorry.  My standmixer contest is over finally.  While I'm thankful for all the entries, links, and votes...I'm glad to not have to deal with that many comments.  I believe the total was ...

Halter Breakin’ Colts

As I've mentioned before, my husband brought home 2 colts.  They need halter breaking, which is where Tyler comes in.  They're just yearlings and have never been touched and sure enough haven't had anything put on them before.  For those who have no clue what halter breakin''s basically getting the horse used to having a rope ...
