Time Change on the Ranch

This time change is always my favorite - I LOVE lighter nights, and being able to be outside more.... It's not always warm.... but who cares ?? The Sun is shining!!

A Roping Series starts here in January - usually on New Years Day, and it ended yesterday. So we try to spend a lot of time out working the horses ....

Sometimes I get to take my camera too.... just sometimes ;-)

I have a wall that has my Grandpa in Laws Spurs, and a Photo of My other Grandpa in Law riding a steer. I love that old timey look - so may end up putting this one next to it. 

and then my Girl
When she is being funny.... she smiles at you  ( or laughs at you - however you want to take it)

Mostly she's pretty nice - but I think they were sharing secrets!! or maybe they were planning dinner?

This is 'Ol Blue Eyes herself....

Working on the Run - well actually, she is learning to stop once  a catch is made.... it's a challenge ;-)

And when they catch and make a great run - it's really fun! 

Hope you survived the Time Change!!!

Really enjoyed your pictures, especially the smiling horse!!! Your kitty has beautiful blue eyes! Is she part Siamese? My Maggie has beautiful blue eyes too; she is half Siamese and we aren't sure the other half!

I love the longer daylight in the evenings, too. Last night I started to chastise DH for leaving a light on when I realized it was daylight I was seeing reflected on the wall.

I love the light later in the day as well!! I hate it when I have to go out and feed the horses by 3 in the afternoon to still have sunlight! Love your pictures! I always wonder what the horses are communicating when they put their noses together.

Cowboys in ball caps? Just doesn't seem right.
'Ol' Blue Eyes' is gorgeous.
And those two sharing secrets---new fragrance or new hoof polish?
And, yes, I went to the fabric store today. Didn't see you.

How fun! What big teeth she has; it's a good thing she was happy. Any wins in the competition?

Funny thing that I made my way to your blog today because I just returned from a visit with my daughter this weekend and she lives on a ranch. Her husband cowboys for a living. What an amazing lifestyle! It is so peaceful and quiet there.

I live on 10 acres of dirt, so I do have peace but it isn't ranch pretty.

I am visiting from but am currently logged into a different google account.

The blue eyes on that cat are amazing

I just wish they'd pick a time and leave it! Think I need to move to Arizona. :) And about those boys with a roping addiction....kinda like us and our quilting! -Insert that great shot of your horse laughing here - . Great shot of a nice catch!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Our household, including Molly the Cat, is still getting used to the time change. Sigh. I don't think I've ever seen a cat with blue eyes. That's neat. I like the emotion of your top photo. :-)

Your first photo really got my attention - stunning.

I am still a little tired (or maybe it's just a convenient excuse) from losing an hour, but I sure appreciated the sunset I saw on the way home today!

I survived the time change, but our little dog has only now settled down to accept the fact that it isn't the time she thinks it should be (i.e. dog-feeding time)!
I enjoyed your photos of horses, especially the laughing one. I always enjoy photos of horses, but when I meet one up close it can sense that I'm afraid. No amount of talking to myself has been able to cure me of that. But I do love the photos.
