Guess what?! Yep you guessed it! My first Quarter horse baby! A gorgeous, long-legged, smart-headed little colt! Could I be any happier?

I think not! His mama is Lowrys Harlar Lady (April) and his dad is Josie’s Gun Slinger. This kid is bred to the nines! (I will do a full report later.)

I think I am going to call him Lowrys Smokin’ Gun. Smokey for short.

And because it is nearly impossible for me to focus on only one thing per post - I wanted to share this.

I’ve been a little frustrated with my photos lately. They seem flat and dull and dreary and blah! Even though my sister has assured me there is nothing wrong with my photos, (but then that is what sisters are for!) I went digging to find out what I could do to put some life and color and verv (is that a word?) back into my photos.

Then I stumbled onto a blog the 7 MSN Ranch and Rancher Lady there gave me some helpful hints! Which I am loving! (Go check out her site immediately!)

Here is before.

And here is after.

What I did - Crop. PW Seventies action at 74% - PW Quick edge burn at 37% - PW Fresh and colorful - PW Boost

I’m going to sign off for now because the tiller guy is coming to work up my garden and I need to be there to meet him and tell him where the tomatoes are going! Very fun!

Thanks for joining us here at the barnyard! Come back soon!
