The Colt Cam Chronicles

If you don’t follow me on Instagram or Facebook (though the two aren’t playing nice, lately), you’ve probably missed out on the snippets of video I’m posting. I wish every video editor was as handy to use as Instagram’s. Suggestions anyone? I’ve got three or four on my phone and I kind of hate them all!

But no worries if you’ve missed something because I’m going to post the snippets of video here, for you all to see! Happy Dance!

Now for someone other than Rival — this is Kesha — a future barrel horse I’m starting for our friend. Is she gorgeous or what?

Happy Trails and I hope the short videos at the very least, inspire you!

Cock-a-doodle-Doo

It’s been a while since I shared any photos of my pretty chickens, and this year, there were no shortages of adorable, peeping chicks! 

One of them has grown into a gorgeous rooster and I think he’s prettier because he’s a cross between a Red Sexlink and a Giant Cochin — because the only rooster I had is Diablo — a gorgeous, black Giant Cochin — also pictured below.

Do you think this boy is pretty? I can’t decide if I’m eating him or keeping him!

Crustless Quiche

I’m not going to lie — eating breakfast is by far one of my favorite things to do. But I’ve done something I thought I’d never do — I am going gluten free (well as much as possible) because of my hypothyroidism.  You can’t buy instant anything in the grocery stores around here that are […]

The Colt Cam Chronicles 2015

“You can never rely on a horse that is educated by fear. There will always be something that he fears more than you. But, when he trusts you, he will ask you what to do when he is afraid.” ~ Antoine de Pluvinel (1555-1620), the first of the French Riding Masters Many of you will […]

UnBranded

I got an email from Cedar Creek Productions the other day, also known as the company that put out, Buck the Film, and in the footer I found a link to an upcoming documentary called UnBranded. I checked it out and it looks to be really good! Here’s the kickstarter video that helped them get […]

The Official Family Photo

DP8A0569-Edit

I shared the unofficial one here, because it was the last photo ever taken with my beloved “Boo boo” or Higgins, the Papillon. But I realized I never shared the “real” one – the one that will soon be hanging on our wall. From L-R: Jake the Cow-Dog, Myself, The Cowboy (Zach), his son Ty, […]

I am so lucky that I get to take beautiful photos of all the pretty horses, and this pretty country I live in, but even luckier, because friends pay me to take their photos. I took some photos of my good friends when I was in Texas at Christmas. Since I’m always a day late […]

2015 is in full swing, like it or not, and while I may not be someone who makes resolutions, I do like to start fresh, and take time to “reset”. In 2015 — I will be getting to style and dress up some bunkhouses on the ranch that have been a long time coming.  I […]

6 Things Every First-Time Horse Owner Should Know

20140620-222725-80845300.jpg

I was a HORSE crazy kid. Just ask my parents. At age 4 I started begging for a horse. I got a riding lesson here or there, and a week or two at summer camp with my aunt, who grew up on a ranch and took us riding the “dude string” horses, but that was […]
