Branding! Yeah baby!! Best time a the year.
Had a super duper fun time and some good entertainment, such as:
Jed ridin a buckin horse but still dallied up! He stuck him tho! Yay Jed!
Sorrely got pretty high up there! :)
I had somewhat of a little wreck, I'm not very handy and it bums me out a little. That being said, every little wreck just teaches you something new and makes you that much smarter and handier! So I'm thankful that nobody got hurt and more lessons learned! :) The lil pally horse, Biscuit, was great most the time! Held the little (actually BIG) calves good and never caused a fuss! So happy dad lets me ride such nice horses. Thanks Daddy!
Super tons of fun! And even though I didn't catch too many, I threw lots of shots. So Adrian and Liz!! I threw some for you!! ;) I was also singing "Cinderella", "Damn Rodeo Men", "Spanish Ranch Cowboy" (one of mine and Krick's favorites! Although we'd probly make Adrian cry if she heard us sing it hehe) and a lot of other awesome songs sung by Adrian during the branding!
Loved it! We had a blast. Between the guys throwing calf nuts at the girls and then the girls threatening to give the guys shots if they didn't stop. Yes, we had bushels of fun!!
Oh and Jesse wanted to take it off her bucket list to castrate a calf, also to threaten her husband, after she had done a couple, she cut her finger... 4 stitches later and she was back at the branding! Tough girl! :)
Gooood news! We finally have a picture of my pretty sis, Kricket and me together! :)
Thank God for horses, family, friends and lil' calves to brand.
Thank God for cowboys and cowgirls and open land.
CUTEST lil cowboys there today! ;) Landon, 3 years, was runnin around askin "Are you finkin what I'm finkin?" Cutie! <3 And his brother, Luke, around 8 years ish, playin with Zane and bein a handy lil buckaroo!
So in honor of Landon, Zane and Luke, I'm gonna share this poem.
Big flat hat smashed down hidin’ a mischievous smile.
Blue Ariat boots with spurs a jinglin’ all the while.
Crisp Cinch jeans and a red cowboy shirt.
Them buckaroo girls start to flirt.
Navajo pad and a square skirted saddle.
On a big palomino paint just movin’ the cattle.
Somewhat random, but something I want to say. Reading, it's a good thing. I walk down the halls at school and hear people, and some of my friends, whining about how much they hate english and reading. Well, reading is something I enjoy. I will say this tho, if it isn't a book I want to read, so basically if it's not a cowboy ish book, I have a lot harder time being driven to read it. I like to read because I like to keep my brain on its toes, and it makes for a wider vocabulary and more knowledge! We can all use a little more knowledge, am I right I want to learn as much as I can and being that I write poems, I want to always be learning new words, phrases and such so that my poems are different and unique. Just like me! :) Although I like to read, that does NOT mean big sis Kricket does! She strongly dislikes it in fact! She hasn't read a book in probly 3 years! Instead she packs "All The Pretty Horses" to school daily and watches the movie the night before the presentation! Shhhh don't tell nobody! Hehe
RECOMMENDATION: "All The Pretty Horses" is an amazing book and movie! The movie is based off of a novel written by Cormac McCarthy. Outstanding! Blevins, one of my favorite characters is hilarious. Just watch it k!!!
Krick is on an FFA trip. So safety to her and friends, and this be it from me!
Bye bye buckaroos and buckarettes for now!
