I am really proud of a picture I took the other day, and by evening, my face hurt from grinning about it so much. But my joy was quickly stomped down by the realization that my hard work was extremely easy to steal. I don't usually post my best pictures on here, and I definitely … Continue reading To Watermark, or Not to Watermark?

Pulling a calf means exactly that. You loop special chains, rope, twine, or whatever … Continue reading I pulled my first calf!
It's been almost 100 degrees all week and we still haven't gotten our air conditioner fixed so se've all been hot and extra tired lately especially my dad. Haying season is in full swing now and we are almost half done with our first cutting on our pivot. I'm back on a horse everyday … Continue reading Tired and hot this week
