We have a beautiful daughter who loves horses...ranch life...and is a bit of an animal whisperer. She has a way to ease into them and make them love her.
|Her pet...he has bad feet and a great sense of humor|
|Sometimes he gets to go along as the pack horse|
|"Poncho" a liver chestnut quarter horse|
|Poncho ~ never liked kids ~ hummmm|
|He was after a alfalfa cube|
|Airing out the saddle blankets and giving the horses a break|
Her half day ride to take out some salt blocks turned into a bit of a longer day. Found a calf limping, so had to get the cow to cooperate. Then Kate hauled Little Joe back for Papa. A happy day.

|Old corral that came in handy to get in an injured calf|
|Finally got the Mama to co operate|
|Time for a lunch break|
We have been extremely blessed to be living on the same yard as my folks for nearly 4 years. The wisdom and knowledge that they can impart is invaluable! Take advantage of all learning opportunities from any person with experience to share with you. What wonderful memories my girls will have of their grandparents! How blessed we are that they are young and full of vim and vigor!
