I grew up not far from Glen Rose, Texas and attended college near there as well, so I have spent plenty of time in the Somervell County Expo Center. It’s a great facility, with good ground, lots of stalls, and good places to warm your horse up. When I discovered that I could go from […]
You guys. I’ve slacked a lot this summer in the blogging department, so I’m hoping you’re keeping up with me via Instagram. If you’re not, I’m sorry. I post there often, mostly because it’s easy and I can do it on the go. Though I’m there a lot less than I used to be because […]
Sometimes the stars align just perfectly and the result is something more beautiful than you’d ever imagine it would be.
That was the case for this year’s annual school portrait photoshoot that I do with my niece.
We have two brandings on our place, as a general rule. Our big Father’s Day party, and another, smaller branding around the Fourth of July. This year, I spent the entire July 4th branding, horseback, either roping or holding herd, so I don’t have photos of that little party. I do, however, have photos of us […]
I can barely keep up with going through my Mail, let alone my blog… But I’m still taking lots of photos! I photographed a senior last week. She’s gorgeous and I’ll share those soon. I have some beautiful branding day photos to share too, and of course my colts are getting huge. The photos below […]

iPhone photos from around the ranch… Happy Trails!
Here’s another installment in our “Branding Pen” Series. Sometimes you just need a break (The Cowboy rests while we wait for vaccine). Variety is the spice of life: Mamas wait, watch and graze for us to be finished with their calves: Sometimes a Big Green Tractor makes a great chair: Megan’s go-to face when I […]
I’m way behind in sharing photos and stories of what has gone on here at the ranch the past couple weeks. What can I say? It’s summer. Which means I’m busy. Please forgive me. So in the meantime, a few photos of calves from this past weekend’s branding will have to suffice. These photos will […]
It is no secret that I LOVE Crate & Barrel. Of course they have no idea who I am, but that’s neither here nor there. I had to put together this summertime, outdoor entertaining ensemble! I love the hand-blown rita glasses and votive holders, the colorful, festive chairs, and the dishes. Oh the serving dishes. […]
