Back To School

It’s becoming a tradition for me to take “school” photos for my niece. I get the practice, and she gets cooler-than-cool photos to share with her friends and hang on the walls of her house. We took hers this week, and I had to share. I’m sure some of you have seen them if you’ve […]

Random iPhone photos from around the ranch…

A senior from a shoot this week … Another view of Chief Swiftbird’s home… My new haircut compliments of my friend Stephy Jo… A few of the boys at the watering hole… A blowout on the trailer that we had on our way home from…

Chief Swiftbird’s House

I snapped this photo after our branding a couple weeks ago with my iPad. There’s a lot of history surrounding this old structure but I won’t bore you with that right now. The photo will speak for itself. Happy Trails!

Rapid City Runs

I ran my new pony this weekend at The Rapid City Barrel Bash. I had a lot of fun. It was nice to be reminded how fast I am capable of riding. And how lax I’ve become when riding Gump. Friday night we made a pretty nice run, save for taking out barrel #2: Saturday, […]

No Average Joe 022

I don’t really know why I kept this a secret. It really wasn’t a secret. I guess I was just in shock that it was happening. Last week, I got a new pony from one of my all time bestest friends, Steph. He’s big. And I mean BIG. He’s handsome. Oooh laah laah! His name […]

Branding, Branding and more Branding!

It’s been a busy past few weeks. We’ve had one branding after another, after another. I have a lot of photos to share. Mostly photos my niece took. I’m telling you folks, she’s got talent this girl! Here’s me and the Dino (aka, DX Jurassic Classic) getting ready to make an attempt at roping something: […]

What Happens in the Branding Pen…

…When you give your camera to someone else, because the photojournalist that is there wants to flank a calf? You get interesting photos. Allow me to show you the results of my 28mm lens, a bit of instruction (ie- get close so you don’t need binoculars to see what is in the photo), and a […]

Barrel Race, Barrel Race, Barrel Race

It’s been ages since I shared any barrel racing videos. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because my horse is still running in the same place and the improvement is coming slowly, but surely. Maybe it’s because I’ve been too busy. No matter. I have a couple runs from the past few weeks to share. […]

DX NukeThisBombshell

Yesterday morning, after a long, drawn-out, return trip from my weekend in Texas (a completely separate, frustrating post), I awoke to find a pretty sorrel filly walking next to her gorgeous mother. It has been a long time waiting on this little beauty to be born, and I’m sure you’re all glad because it means […]
