Story Behind the Photo: A Cowboy's Work is Never Done

February 26 2019

A cowboy’s work is never done: neither snow nor rain nor barbed wire fences nor rank bulls interfere with the work of a cowboy or his cow horse or his cow dog. Here in the West the cowboy is a common sight, any day or season of the year. We occasionally help them move cows, but whenever a bull moves in and takes up uninvited residence, we call in the experts to remove them!

Hillbillie Willie: Snow Rider

Wednesday February 13 2019

Here's something I didn't know about Hillbillie Willie: this California Standardbred loves riding in the snow!

It's supposed to be raining and snowing the next 48 hours - like 100% chance - but it was neither, and the footing was actually good, so we went out on a training ride. I'm sure it's the first time he's been ridden in the snow. He was enthusiastic, forward, fast, and fun!
