Scenes from the Ranch January 20, 2023

Whenever I return to the barnyard after a hike, I spend time talking to and petting our sweet horse, Ruby. We are both working on trust and confidence in each others presence. Someday, I hope that she will become my partner on long rides moving cows across the prairie.

This ball of love and black fur is Bear. He joined our barnyard community in the fall and he adores being petted and soaking up sunshine. He rolls himself around on the cat food shelf with such reckless abandon that he often tumbles to the ground. Unfazed, he jumps quickly back up for more petting.

Maverick and his horses. He is absolutely content when he is in the company of horses. When it comes right down to it, we’re pretty sure he thinks he is a horse.

I live in Montana with my husband Bart. I enjoy working in the garden, taking care of the animals, and exploring the prairie with my dogs, my binoculars, and a reverence for the natural world.
