The new ranch

Last night was our first night at the new ranch. No time like the present to saddle up and go for a ride. This is Sis and her stork pose. She does it all the time. If she gets really excited she'll shake it back and forth. It looks like she is trying to start a lawnmower when she does it...

After we rode it was dinner, she is getting my grain with the U Guard in it for 30 days, she has a very sensitive belly. If I am not on top of it she will have the runs and drop weight and look like a neglected rescue in a matter of weeks. DIVA....

This is the sitting area outside where you can have lunch and visit with friends after a ride. The view of the mountains and Mt Hood are Top notch. The landscaping here is gorgeous. They have done 99% of the construction and grounds themselves.
This is the pasture where Sis will be spending a majority of her time. Tough life for her I know. Not sure how she is going to handle all that yummy grass and room to frolic. Like I said DIVA.
Shawn and I are big on horses being horses as much as possible and that to me means turn out as much as possible. ALL DAY every day.
Here is the road leading out to the trail heads, See Mt Hood peeking over the ridge? You can literally go for a long long time out here. I am so excited about it I just can't wait.
We are so happy about our new home. Star has settled right in, no drama, we rode last night!
She was fine until the buffaloes, then it was the HELL NO AND SPIN. But she was very good and stood her ground but didn't bolt , snort and freak. She stood quietly like I asked and when I could tell she had stopped shaking and calmed down, I let her move away.
She wanted to though!
Here's to a wicked cool summer!

Come out and ride with us anytime!
