My Mom the Cowgirl

My Mom is coming on Saturday for a visit. She and Dad still live in So Cal. She is coming in this weekend and then she's off to the condo for two weeks then she'll be back.

In the meantime, I have to get the house clean, crap cleared away and Wash Star. I always try and clean them up when Grandma and Grandpa come to visit. They paid to save her life so she could at least be presentable right?

I am getting my MOM ON A HORSE. CRAZY RIGHT? She has hinted over the past few years about riding. Until now I really didn't have a horse I could trust to put my Mom on. This is a huge deal. Mom doesn't ride, but has always supported my riding, and passion for Star. All the horse Decor in my house has been given to me by her.

So sometime during this weekend or when she comes back from the beach, I am putting her on Barn Owners Show Horse Teddy. He is broke broke broke. Such a good boy and walking is his favorite past time. I may even put her on Star for some photo ops.

She was very excited when I told her " Mom, bring yer boots I'm putting you on a horse.!"
She said back " You had better bring your camera!"and " I'm going to be so sore" HA!

So blogger peeps check back often as I will be posting my MOM on a horse post. Video too!
It's going to be a hoot and a half! IF any of you know MY Mom, you'll understand what a kick this is going to be..

Oh, I can't wait to see the pics! I can't imagine anything cooler than to share your passion with your mom.

I'd love to have you come to one of my yoga classes. I teach at Cedar Hills Rec Center on Monday nights. One healing class on Wed. morning and a beginners class on Thursday morning. Let me know if you can make any of these times and I'll hook you up!

Bummer I work , so I can't do mornings, and Monday nights is Drill Practice!

My Mom is almost 70 and it's her first time on a horse!

How cool is that! Sharing your love of horses with Mom. Definitely will be looking for pics......and she probably will be sore but that's ok.

Whooohooo! You ladies are gonna have so much fun. You're so lucky to have such a great Mom who is supportive of your interests and passions. Just tell your Mom not to do any rodeo moves or anything. hehe

I met Toni on Saturday, but things were crazy with Brig acting like a bronc and stuff so we didn't talk much. Love the barn! It's like having my own place.

OK, so I'm thinking of names for your drill team . . .

* Silver Eagles (though that makes you sound like a bunch of old ladies)

* I LOVE The Pink Ladies, but that's the Grease lover in me (the movie, not the "food")

* Team Diva

* Team Estrogen (there's a women's clothing company for working out / biking in the Portland area with this name, too)

* I once heard of a non-local drill teamed named Gunpowder and Lace

* Guns and Roses (Welcome to The Jungle could be your entry song! That would SOOOOOO ROCK!)

* Pink Pioneers

* I was thinking Pink Beavers since Beaver is Oregon's animal or whatever, but no, probably not

* Lassos and Lace

* Clandestine Cowgirls

* Cowgirls Don't Cry

That's it for now -- but if I think of more I'll post them. When it warms up I am so coming to watch you practice!

Julie: Pink Beavers! OMG!
Thats right up there with Pussy Posse!

RR: Oh she is going to be sore for sure! HA!

Lisa: My Mom bought me my first saddle for my first horse back in the day.It's been non stop since.

CJS: She is going to have more fun than me! I will be her groom, Photog, and catering crew!

I believe I have visited you blog before. Thanks for stopping by and good luck in the drawing! I think Star would look great!

Flying Lily said...

I loved your drill team video - the constant being yelled at is so drill team to me!! You all look fabulous. Mom will have a blast.

The Wife said...

Those names from Brigjones are so good. I couldn't come up with anything! I'm quite fond of Pink Beavers!

Hope your mom has an excellent horse adventure. She'll probably get the horse bug like we all did!

jennifer said...

Can't WAIT to see the pics of your Mom. I hope the visit goes well.

I got my first horse at 55. My daughters are Pony Girl and Paint Girl. They had horses growing up and I didn't involved. They spend every spare moment they had with them. I got the bug acouple years ago, and I am hooked! Can't wait to hear more! I am staying tuned!
