What Kind of People Come to a Roping?
Posted Saturday, October 18, at 9:58 PM
I've heard a few people talk about 'cowboys' and the kind of people that go to 'those ropings/brandings. I'm not gonna say that every single roping and branding that you might go to, is the way we do it, but I will say, everyone that WE do, is like this. ...

Elmore County Fair 2014 and back home again
Posted Monday, October 13, at 7:43 PM

We got back on Sunday from Joey's wedding. Sunday is the first day of the Elmore County Fair. On that day are the English Classes, Costume, and Trail Classes. We did go to the Fair on Monday, so we were able to do Halter, and Western Classes. I don't have many pictures, but enough to show that though we at one time, feared that Jilly wouldn't be able to do the Fair, she did indeed make it! She brought home 3 Reserve Grand Champion Ribbons, and one First place. ...

At the end of May, My friend Charlene came to visit for a couple weeks. She of course had to ride ...and we showed her all around this side of the country. Including Sun Valley! I couldn't find the photos to show that she got to brand some calves, but I'll find them later maybe!...

Going back.......
Posted Monday, April 28, at 4:20 PM

Oh, I can't tell you how this must have felt for my son. He has kept in touch with some of the professionals at St. Luke's Children Hospital. Last Friday, he planned to take Jilly to visit with them. It seemed important, to show them how their care and professional skills overcame such frightening statistics. ...

Our Miracle Girl Turns 9
Posted Thursday, April 24, at 5:28 PM

I feel so lucky to be able to make this article. She's come so far in the last months .... I still look at her sometimes and choke up. There is nothing less than a Miracle/Blessing Granted by God to explain that we still have this Treasure. After all that we learned and the reports that we got, she came out ahead of it all. She's healthy and as bright as the day is long. She loves to love, and loves to live. I want to be a part of every bit of it that I can...

Easter Time!
Posted Thursday, April 24, at 5:03 PM

Coloring Eggs is something every kid wants to do! Yep, it can be a mess, but the memories made will be forever cherished by these kids. This is, in my opinion, part of my job as a Grandma. To make these memories and start traditions for these children to carry on to their own children...

Legacy of Legends 2014 Day 3
Posted Wednesday, April 2, at 4:53 PM

3rd morning in, and I"m real excited to see how this final day plays out. I HATE to miss anything, but on this final day, I really don't wanna miss anything, because at that point, there's nothing more to see. I'm already inspired and so impressed with everyone who has done their demonstrations, and I"m so happy also, that Jilly has been able to witness these literally World Class Events by World Class People. ...

Back in the Saddle
Posted Tuesday, April 1, at 5:33 PM

We waited for these moments....and here they are. These first few are a couple weeks ago, on a real warm day obviously. We didn't have Marshmallow home, but Beamer here is more than up to the job of taking care of our girl. She asked on the way home from school if she could ride.... so who am I to say "no"?...

Well, We prayed it would happen, we hoped it would happen, and then we even planned it would happen. Then we actually did make it happen. We were able to take Jilly to our annual trip to Las Vegas, for the Legacy of Legends. Wayne and I love going to this every year. ...

So Very Grateful
Posted Wednesday, January 22, at 4:00 PM

The last few weeks have really impacted me. In what I think is a good way. I spent nearly a month, living in St. Lukes Childrens' Hospital. And while this is not what this blog is about, I learned that those are some very special people. They aren't just there, doing 'a job'. ...

Toughness is in the soul and spirit
Posted Tuesday, January 21, at 4:00 PM

This is going to be a bit long. And it's for family, and whoever ever would like to read it. These last few weeks have been, well, literally Life Changing for our family. We celebrated Thanksgiving, much the same as we always do. There were few of us, but we spoke to distant family on the phone, and just relaxed and enjoyed our time. ...

Whistle Grin & Ride on the Continental Divide
Posted Sunday, November 24, at 11:56 AM

I mentioned on a blog a few days ago, that Wayne and I had been on a trip, and rode over the Continental Divide. It made me realize that I was being amiss in not blogging about that trip. It was the end of August, to the first of September. It is an Annual by Invitation Ride only to honor Ray Hunt, and his philosophy to just "Whistle Grin and Ride" We left on a Thursday and got together near Salmon, Idaho for an evening with friends. ...

Filly Update
Posted Friday, November 22, at 4:42 PM

Well, the filly has been moving right along. She's sweet and I can't wait to see where she goes. At 13 or so months, we can already see that she is quiet minded, and kid gentle. And of course, Jilly loves her a lot already. Could be she'll be in the Elmore County Fair next summer, but we shall see how it goes. This is one of the first days that Jilly handled her, and with the other horses looking on to make sure all goes well, she's doing a fine job...

Give Thanks
Posted Wednesday, November 6, at 5:32 PM

There are so many things I'm thankful for. I went thru some of my photos, and grabbed a few that caught my eyes, as a favorite. I take so many photos during our days, but there are some that when I see them, I know "This is a favorite" As always the Grandchildren hold a top stop in my heart, and in my husband's heart also. Then comes our daily lives with horses, cattle, and outdoors...

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
