“Nothing Like Giggling at Yourself”

Recently I had the awesome opportunity to be a part of the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame and Museum’s annual event, “Cowgirl U” held at the incredible Paws Up resort in Greenough, Montana. Here I am, trying to stay warm in the rain (huge down parka underneath) as I led a cattle drive. Do you think, “Lookin good,” is too strong? I resemble a dark Pillsbury dough boy with high water pants!

I had so much fun recently at Equine Affaire in Columbus, Ohio. I had the privilege of working with the Equine Affaire team as well as a number of friends on a four-minute act for their nighttime performance, “Fantasia”. It was a “cutting freestyle” which is tough without live cattle. But, no problem. We had cows in costumes!

Evaluating Your Horse’s Desire to Cut

Recently I received a question about how to evaluate a cutting horse that is nonchalant about his job.

How do you know if there are untapped talents within your horse … or if the horse is just not up for cutting?

Of course without asking lots of questions and digging into this particular horse’s history physically, mentally, training wise, etc. … I couldn’t really answer that question in an informed way. However, I can provide some ideas to ponder.

I’m a Junkie!

I’m an information junkie … at least about the things I’m interested in. (-:

I’m going to a seminar soon. It’s not about horses. It’s actually about doing a better and better job online.

So, I’m excited!!!! I love to learn and it will be great fun to do something so different. I will also be around great minds. That’s always a treat.
