OK, so… you all know that I love Western wear but I have none and I don’t ride Western…  besides, Wranglers don’t really fit me and i don’t look good in a cowboy hat.  My hair doesn’t flow right when it is long, either.

So, I kinda lust after Western stuff from afar.

But… I ended up with these incredible boots (long story) and now I wish I knew how to wear them with more outfits because I WANT THEM ALL!

This is my pair… I love them! I don’t know how to wear them correctly – like under which type of jeans or whaever – so I just wear them. And I love looking down at them!


Here is the official photo of my boots. Love.


Remember when I went to the EXTREME WYLENE clinic?  Well, she was wearing boots with an amazing checkerboard pattern.  I had never seen anything like them.

And then… I noted that her assistant had an amazing pair of boots as well.

So, I asked.

They said, “They’re Tin Haul boots”.

“Tom Hall?”

“Tin Haul.”

“Tom Horn?”

“Tin – like the metal, and HAUL like to carry something.”

“Oh, Tin Haul.”

“Yup.  And look at the bottoms!”

At this point, they both proceeded to show me the soles of their boots, and I was a goner!


There are so many styles!


The brand of the boots I have is TIN HAUL.

Google them.

They come in Men and Women sizes.

But, it is the design that got me.

Someone is having FUN with boot design.   The designers at Tin Haul have come up with great outers, uppers and soles!

Soles with Soul!

Boots with Bragging rights.

Love love love!

And it isn’t just the design, the materials are soft and pliable and comfortable.  Yeah!

I was a bit bummed that I couldn’t find the history of the company or how they came to design such fun boots… does anyone know them personally?  Anyone know the story?

Here is the Tin Haul FB page.


These were the style Wylene had during her clinic. Even filthy dirty and totally broken in, they were so great looking!

Hope for the Cure.

I love these sunflowers but not sure about the smiley faces…


This is the boot Wylene’s assistant wore! Hers were totally broken in and filthy dirty from the arena footing, but they looked great!


So fun!


Yum!! But they are for men…

MORE MORE MORE  (absolutely no affiliation and that makes me sad…)

I am so in love with the fun of these boots, I wish I could afford them all!  But, the reality is that I don’t have enough call to wear boots – unless I’m working around here or riding … and I’d hate to wear such lovely boots while doing chores!!  Heavens!

But, you might just find me out there in my fancy schmancy boots, cuz I love ’em!

(I tried to buy Hubby but I couldn’t find the style I wanted in his size.  Waaah!)




Very Vegas!


Silly fun!


For the football fan!


This was the pair I wanted to get for Hubby… He is a size 11 EE.


Love these!



Love these!

A few weeks ago, a package arrived of Mrs. Tullamore’s Treats.  I’ve ordered these previously and I KNEW that my herd loved them!  So, immediately, I went out and fed these luscious morsels to my horses… (MT was still with us at the time.)

My favorite part of Mrs. Tullamore’s is that they are fresh from her oven to you.  Not like ordinary packaged treats, these are FRESH and fast to you.  For me, fresh (natural)  ingredients and fresh delivery are key to health (for me and for the horses!).

*As an aside, I want to say that it is really tough to hold a camera while feeding treats – especially very yummy treats – because the horses become excited and pushy.  So, please excuse my less than superlative photography.


This is the tub that arrived! Click image to go to site. All treats are fresh daily and my horses LOVE them! Every single horse - even BG!

Here is ‘wild’ Rojo… becoming unwild as soon as I have Mrs. Tullamore’s Treats on hand.


OK, first off, here is the website as I know some of you will want to order these for your horses over the holidays!  They have Peppermint flavored, too!

This is genius Gwen… she saw the box and ran around the barn to be first in line… She has one in her mouth…

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.16.49 PM

The cookies arrived before MT passed… but I didn’t write about them because the Mrs. Tillamore’s website was not up yet. So… this is MT, having her treat..

Rojo finishing his treat... Yummy. Who's wild now, eh?!

Sam loses her fear of people when I have Mrs. Tullamore’s…

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.19.07 PM

That’s Remi, diving in. Sam is chewing in the background.

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.19.28 PM

Rojo has decided to come over for another…

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.19.41 PM

He is King and he pushes his way in for another. Again, he seems to lose his ‘wild’ thang when Mrs. Tullamore’s are around.

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.19.57 PM

This is when it got fever pitched! Gwen came back around from the other side of the barn and now there were horses pushing and shoving to get to the treats. You can see me telling them to ‘stay back!’.

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.20.08 PM

Awww, sad horses… the treatlady left.

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.20.56 PM

This is BG… she is the most discerning. But, not today! She loves Mrs. Tillamore’s!

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.21.19 PM

I’m just gave one to Finn and BG is trying to get it.

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.21.41 PM

This is Finn’s “Can I have another, please” face.

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.22.02 PM

He wins! The cookie is gone instantly!

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.22.19 PM

Wrigley heard the commotion and came over for his!

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.22.51 PM

BG got another…

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.23.15 PM

Scoutypants had been following me around so I gave her one.

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.23.29 PM

Suspicious Annie actually ate one!

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.23.44 PM

I dropped another and she went for it!

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.23.56 PM

And another… I think I know how I’m going to teach her to lead… ;)

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.24.04 PM

Yum! These humans have good stuff!

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.24.15 PM

Look how pretty she is sitting… in case I hadn’t noticed. She practically tripped me every chance she could. Dogs love them, too!

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.24.30 PM

Dodger loves them!

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.24.39 PM

Slick practically bit my fingers off, that’s why I don’t have an ‘after’ photo.

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.24.59 PM

Norma on the approach…

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.25.28 PM

And another for Annie, who pushed her way in – again. She is eating for 2, after all…

Screen Shot 2015-12-13 at 4.25.44 PM

And back in the barn, of course, MT had a tiny Mrs. Tillamore’s treat – again. If I had known she would pass very soon after this photo was taken, I would have given her more.
