Frosty Red Head

Here is our frosty little red head in the snow earlier in the week. She is just the cutest cow ever. She wants to be around us all the time and she “talks” constantly to get our attention. A very special cow for sure. Once spring officially arrives I think she will be lots of fun as we will be out and about in the pasture areas. I am thinking she will be our special friend who follows us wherever we go…

Elk Love The Cold!


We have elk that live close by. We rarely ever see the elk as they stay hidden most of the time. This week the elk are loving the cold and snowy weather. Cowboy was headed to buy feed for the livestock and was able to snap a few iPhone photos of the elk enjoying our fabulous frigid weather. I love elk and always am amazed and excited to see these local ones. Cowboy was totally "stoked" to see them … [Read More...]

96 Takes the Cake


96 takes the cake or... in this case the baby. 96 is not the friendliest cow at the farm, nor does she really like me. 96 , however, is a GREAT mama. She took great care of her calf and was highly protective and loving. Before Christmas her baby went away to another ranch to become a show calf and 96 was miserable. Usually, when babies leave it is a bad day for the mamas, but 96 was beyond sad for … [Read More...]

New Best Friend

New Best Friend

This week has been lovely weather at the farm so I have been able to be out and about which is what I love. Last weekend we found some old buried junk in one of our dry creek beds. We pulled it out and sent it to the dump. We are not a fan of old junk littering the farm so when new junk appears we get rid of it. After everyone left I went back to the old creek bed to explore and see if I could … [Read More...]

And Now… The Undertaker

Undertaker 2015

My previous post introduced "Three Feathers" and everyone loved him! The "clean-up" bull has now arrived at the farm and his name is "Undertaker" and all I can say is... WOW. He is beautiful and huge. He also is very even tempered even though some of you might think he looks a bit fierce. He actually was a show bull years back and has a nice show bull temperament. Today, I spent time talking and … [Read More...]

Three Feathers

3 Feathers

Wanted you to see "Three Feathers" because I think he is so darn cute! Three Feathers is a bull who came to "visit" the girls in November. I was busy trying to get Christmas shopping done and managed only one photo of him on iPhone. Is this not darling of him already making friends with the girls? He actually was really adorable and I hope he will get to come back and visit next year! I bet some … [Read More...]

Crazy Observations On TCU & The Peach Bowl


I survived the Peach Bowl. I now have had nearly a week to reflect on my trip to follow the FROGS. So glad I made the trek to support the team. Here are a few ponderings... Atlanta and Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl hosted a really nice event. Atlanta and it's people were extremely friendly and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Atlanta has the Georgia Aquarium which was the best … [Read More...]

How much fun will that be? Good … [Read More...]

London Christmas

London Shopping

I loved that the stores were decorated for Christmas when I was in London in October. I fell in love with all the furry animals and wanted to bring one of everything home. I did manage to bring one of these home! Can you guess which one? Hint: I have it in our Christmas tree. I love him... His name is "Snowy." … [Read More...]
