Howdy my western hearts! Things have been so crazy here as I have been trying to become a legend…well heck a gal can try! Here is a quick update on our latest adventures, travels and treasures.
Jake is still in retirement and he is some what enjoying it, he had his shoes pulled a few weeks ago, so it is official, when the shoes come off…it’s time to retire. He hangs out at that ranch and keeps all the other horses in line, eats carrots and is just good ol’ Jake. He seems to be liking his second retirement but I know he would prefer to be out on the trail any day. So without a horse I had to make a decision, a hard decision..to start looking for a new horse. I felt so bad but…
I started looking for a new horse to ride several weeks ago, man what an ordeal. My dear friend Rachel always says “shopping for a horse is like shopping for a wedding dress….sounds like fun, should be fun…but…it’s not”
So finally after “kicking a lot of hooves” I found a new friend. He is a big,quiet fellow and I will introduce you to him next time. I had to ride a lot of horses, call many people and travel many miles to find him. Buying a horse is scary but one of the things I liked most was the gal I bought him from, she was the real deal, a true horse woman through and through, not a wanna be trying to sell me the wrong horse. As much as I was looking for the right horse, she was looking for the right owner. So for me, she was a huge part of they buying experience, we spoke the same language so to speak. So hang tight, I will have photos and a whole lot more in the next post.

Canada,specifically Banff National Park. I can hardly wait!!!!
