  1. Petey, you are awesomely handsome wearing the ear warmers (or Santa hat, whichever you prefer). Can’t wait to hug you again. BTW, you need to reconsider Huck as a friend. He shook his head at me lasts week-end and I laughed. He backed up after that so suggest you use your sense of humor when dealing with a longhorn steer.

    1. thanks so much, Denise… it’s definitely a Santa hat, but gosh all mighty were my ears warm during the photo shoot, so I guess you could call it either!

      I know, I know, everyone keeps telling me Huck’s not so bad… and I have to say, he isn’t near as popular as when he first got here (I hardly hear anyone talking about him anymore), so I guess it would be OK to befriend him… you know, people just don’t know how difficult celebrity really is- my job is not that easy (being famous for being myself, that is); it’s difficult to remain as interesting and popular as I have throughout the years, and I guess that ol’ Huck just didn’t have what it takes. Thanks, Denise, for showing me the light- I’ll see what I can do with him (of course, I’ll be bringing a couple of my friends in his pen with me, just in case- all celebrities have a body guard after all).

      I look forward to the next time I get to see you at the ranch too- but, next time, when you bring me your hug, could you also provide a handful of grain? 🙂

Fall Horseback Riding Vacations

From the Horse's Mouth

“Giddyup!”

An incredible ranch experience for our group of nine people - 5 adults and 4 children ages 6 - 11. We had never been on horses, but by the end of the week, the kids were loping and participating in the "showdeo". The attention to detail, the amazing food, the variety of activities for all ages, the lovely tented spa experience and the beautiful scenery all added up to the best vacation we have ever had!
