I have a lot of girlfriends that that make great hands and are better help than alot of men, but I am not one of them. It's very hard work and I would get in the way or get somebody hurt. I am not a very good cowgirl. I am just fine with my role as the event caterer and my husband loves to have real food for the men to eat and not just burritos served on the tailgate of the truck
The guys are used to me hanging around with my camera. I'm no Bob Moorehouse, but I enjoy trying to capture our life in a sincere, moving way.
My son is old enough now to start helping his Dad on horseback. He's so excited! It's wonderful to see him follow in his father's footsteps, and his grandfather's, and great and great great grandfather's. That doesn't mean he's off the hook for med school, but I hope he is proud of the ranching tradition. My mother in law's family has been on this land almost 130 years.
