Day #3 of Stockwhip training

I finally fully cracked my whip with Moon and she did great! I was going to post the video here, but my computer and internet aren't cooperating. But you can see the video on my Youtube channel, GoPro Cowgirl as well as some of my other videos. Please keep on mind that I'm still learning … Continue reading Day #3 of Stockwhip training

Day 2 of Stockwhip training

I've been working on introducing my stockwhip to Moon this last week. I started out making sure that she was completely comfortable with the lead rope being swung around her and tossed all over her body. I made sure to also swing it so that it would wrap around her legs since that can happen … Continue reading Day 2 of Stockwhip training

Minny on laundry day

That little mini foal is impossibly cute. I've been taking her and her mom, Sugar, out to graze every day, and Minny runs circles around us the whole way there and back. Since we have to re-fence the horse pasture, and Minny is still only supposed to have controlled exercise, Sugar gets tied to four … Continue reading Minny on laundry day

Minny the Mini

It was pretty warm out, … Continue reading Minny the Mini

Sugar’s got a baby belly!

My miniature mare, Sugar, is about 8 months pregnant and she has a huge belly. And by huge, I mean it looks like someone stuffed one of those aerobics balls in her! She recently lost a lot of weight, so I am starting her on some special grain to help her, so she definitely doesn't … Continue reading Sugar’s got a baby belly!

I pulled my first calf!

I pulled my first calf today! Without any help! At. All.  Before I explain the whole story about what happened today that led up to pulling the calf, I will explain what "pulling a calf" means for all my non-ranchy readers. Pulling a calf means exactly that. You loop special chains, rope, twine, or whatever … Continue reading I pulled my first calf!

Pokemon Go at the Vet

So while I was at the vet earlier this summer for my dog to finally get her cast off, and I was a little early so I had to wait awhile. While sitting there with my dog happily sitting at my feet I think, "Hey I wonder if there's anything good nearby." So with this thought … Continue reading Pokemon Go at the Vet

August, September, and October Update

I promise that there is a very good reason why I have not posted in three months! Actually there are a lot... in August when I was about to do a post, I had a family emergency and doing a blog entry was the last thing I felt like doing. Then we had a LOT … Continue reading August, September, and October Update
