Portraits of the Family

The cowboy’s brother and SIL have a couple really cute kids. And every year they let me take a family photo. Corralling two busy boys is a challenge though, but we do the best we can! They really love Kelsey’s horse, Polmol. He is their buddy. Here is what happened at this year’s session.

A Song About Domestic Violence

I haven’t written a new song in ages. But I was inspired to do so due to the last month, and mostly, this article. Here’s a little video, friends. I’ve called the song, “shallow”, but I’m not sure that’s an appropriate title. I don’t really know what is. So any insight you’re willing to give […]

Stories from the Road

As we continue on our road trips for the summer, it’s time to share yet another story; of kindness, good people, and a bit of luck… I was on the second day of my return journey from being in Glen Rose. I’d spend the night in Kansas, like I always do, and had a 10 […]

Glen Rose, Texas

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 […]

Stories from the Road

I think if you haul around enough, you get some good stories from the road — though sometimes they’re not awesome – like the time the pickup caught on fire — but my traveling around the past few weeks hasn’t been without a hiccup or two. Since I’m always by myself, I don’t drive straight […]

Regional Bonus Race Run

I’m currently in Texas, after having spent last weekend in Oklahoma at the Regional Run for the Bonus Race. I still haven’t won a qualifier for the 2017 Run for the Bonus, but I had a blast, made two of three clean runs on my horse and this marks the first weekend I’ve ridden him […]

A Day On The Ranch

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 […]

A Weekend in Lincoln

This past year was the first year I’ve really gotten to “go” on my horse. And as such, he won me two qualifiers for the Bonus Race Finals in Lincoln, Nebraska. I had a blast and I’ve already added every race that gives out qualifiers to my schedule for this summer because I want to […]

From the Branding Pen

We just finished our annual Father’s Day Branding.  We got to it a day late because it rained on Saturday, but Sunday proved to be a gorgeous day! A nice breeze, lots of sunshine and good people, made the day even better! My family came up from Texas and we got to have a nice visit. Plus […]
