From the Barnyard

Family Photos

May 22, 2015


I asked my friend Ramie Edwards to come do a portrait session with me and my family.


And Ramie Delivered!


She got some fabulous ones of the Kiddos!


Of course my kids know how to pose for a camera!


They’ve been my models all their lives!


It is a little harder with me. I belong behind the camera, not in front of it! And ol’ Booger wasn’t that thrilled about his modeling career either.


But Ramie got some great photos of me that I can use here and on Facebook.


She made it look so calm and peaceful and professional….


When really, this is what the photoshoot really looked like!

Thank you Ramie! I really treasure these photos!

And if anyone is looking for a photographer in this area - I highly recommend her! Check out her beautiful web page - just click here.


And look at my beautiful birthday cake! Cammy and my Little Cowgirl worked on it together. Very secretively! Best - Cake - Ever! Thank you Cammy!

And what a wonderful birthday! Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes!

When I am an Old Horsewoman

May 20, 2015


When I am an old horsewoman

I shall wear turquoise and diamonds,

And a straw hat that doesn’t suit me

And I shall spend my social security on

white wine and carrots,

And sit in my alleyway of my barn

And listen to my horses breathe.

I will sneak out in the middle of a summer night

And ride the old bay gelding,

Across the moonstruck meadow

If my old bones will allow

And when people come to call, I will smile and nod

As I walk past the gardens to the barn

and show instead the flowers growing

inside stalls fresh-lined with straw.

I will shovel and sweat and wear hay in my hair

as if it were a jewel

And I will be an embarrassment to all

Who will not yet have found the peace in being free

to have a horse as a best friend

A friend who waits at midnight hour

With muzzle and nicker and patient eyes

For the kind of woman I will be

When I am old.

By the way happy mother’s day. Only a little late!

Thanks for joining me here at the barnyard! We are having so many babies these days! It is so fun. I will try to get you all caught up on pictures.

I will have miniature austrailian shepherd puppies and my last litter of poodle puppies available in about 3 weeks.

One last darling Dalmatian is still available!
