Ho Ho Ho Merry after Christmas hello and as we approach 2012 we wish you the best of the New Year! ! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas time with your families.
Our Christmas was blessed with family, friends and lots of good food. No we do not have this much snow…actually we have none…this picture was taken in 2009 in front of “The Lab.”
Christmas morning broke, gifting us with a beautiful Juniper Canyon dawn which was glorious.
I love the early morning mist in this picture just as dawn broke…you can see the soft swirls of it. You can see two of our horses too…Annie is standing up and waiting on breakfast while Melody is laying flat on her side taking a nap….she likes to stretch out for her naps…she trusts me enough that I can walk up to her to scratch her while she is down…she is so sweet.
Santa Claws brought “Minnie Mouse” a new play house…it even matches her fur:)
I wonder what Santa brought Wild Bill? It looks like something for his horse Buck…ok smile WB.
Looks like Buck got a new bit…Wild Bill is modeling it…hmmmm…I wonder if I can put this to good use?
A-ha…Minnie got a little catnip…yee haw…we try to do it right down here on the farm!
Merry Christmas Yippee Ki Yay Kiah…we love you lots and lots:) Did you like your new chew toys and bones? Ah it looks like you enjoyed the black bird…
Minnie Mouse had a good Christmas…she loved her new house and her cat nip too…ahhhhh life is good:)
Wild Bill welcome to the technology of a Mac…you will love it. As you see…he is enjoying it and playing with it:) We both have the iPhone 4S with the Siri feature which is awesome!!! Both our laptops have a similar feature.
Speaking of Macs…as I said they are cool!
These are farm country Macs…hay swathers that we are painting for one of the local farmers here. They are parked at my back door…Hot Rod Cowgirl is not figurative.
I am real…a bit hot rod…a bit horse gal…a bit farm girl….thats me:)
My hubby bought me this awesome ring from ZPT Silver…notice the bucking horse? That is the Pendleton Round Up logo and I love it!
Hot Rod Cowgirl’s garage…”Jagged and Sadie Sue Suburban”…we name our vehicles around here.
Note my cool bug shield painted by my hubby with his signature flames…and “Jagged” looking mean and nasty…waiting for good weather again.
This cowgirl thing goes way back to when my Dad stuck me on a horse before I could walk…this is me at a horse show way back in the mid 1980′s…it was extremely hot that day and I was riding one of our ranch bred horses Sally…it was her first horse show and we did fine except when we rode by some little kids who dropped their full plastic cup of ice water…poor Sally jumped but we managed to maintain and finish our class in western pleasure:) I was so proud of her as she had lived forever way out in the country so this show was a big eye-opening experience for her. Personally I like riding my horses out and working cows or gathering cows…but in the 80′s I thought ok what is this horse show thing…had to find out…and it was ok but not my thing. Note…look at the hat …notice the feather and the high crown? Styles have changed…thank goodness!
Hot Rod Cowgirl and Wild Bill along with Holton Secret Lab wishes you a Happy New Year! Stay tuned….I did a photo shoot today and will upload some new pictures on my next post.
