life in photos…

I can barely keep up with going through my Mail, let alone my blog… But I’m still taking lots of photos! I photographed a senior last week. She’s gorgeous and I’ll share those soon. I have some beautiful branding day photos to share too, and of course my colts are getting huge. The photos below […]

When The Wind Damages

Many have noticed the sudden disappearance of posts on social media and, due to access, this blog. On June 8, a sudden but brief storm rearranged SlowMoneyFarm. We had to immediately get past shock to survival. Rebuilding has begun but it will be a long, long time coming. Trees were down, and crushed the mobile […]

The Wreck

I’ve been getting to barrel race a little bit this summer, and Avie and I are really clicking! Thursday before our Father’s Day Branding, I took him to the local Jackpot, where Gump and I have won a couple buckles in the summer series. I love running on a standard pattern so this arena is […]

Foals on Film

I thought, since I’m behind, I’d take a moment to share the cuteness that has been Tony and Issimo growing up this summer. Here’s Issimo getting scratched, and feeling the need to scratch back… Issimo loves his scratches! #foals #thedxranch #horses #ig_equine #lovehim #love #ranchlife A video posted by Jenn Z (@thesdcowgirl) on Jun 24, […]

Generalissimo

Some of you who follow me on Facebook and actually get notifications from my South Dakota Cowgirl Page, or who follow me on Instagram, have seen that my second (and last) colt for the year was born on June 13. This his how behind I am in in sharing my life. You have my apologies. His […]

Photos from the Branding Pen

I’ve been uber busy this summer, as evidenced by the lack of posts here (but you can still read what I’m writing about horsemanship over at Cavvy Savvy).  I’m so behind, I didn’t realize until this morning that I hadn’t shared any of my branding pen photos from this Spring.  We just held our annual […]

A Typical Day on the Ranch

I’m often asked: what’s a typical day on the ranch? I chuckle inside and then quietly say with a smile on my face, “there is no such thing”! When you live where you work, and work where you live, manage animals and grass for a living, life gets hectic, frenetic and crazy. One day (like […]

My Very Own Iron Man

We had a baby born the 14th. He’d be a full sibling to my colt, Fridge. He’s adorable, albeit a bit crooked legged. Because he’s windswept and a bit contracted he’s got a nice fluffy, confined spot in the calving barn.  His dad is named Nukem, and his mother is Streakin Iron.  I sent photos […]
