  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? 🙂

“Awesome Girls' Getaway!”

Group of 6 women spent Memorial Day Weekend at the C Lazy U Ranch to celebrate a birthday. Bit of a drive over the mountains from Denver, but well worth it. Went for two trail rides each day, were split into groups based upon experience level. Went on a different trail each time.
