Happy Friday! All the horsey vacation photos I didn’t post before! Sigh. Such a great time was had by all!






As you all know, I was at the R Lazy S Ranch for 7 days a few weeks ago.  Sigh.  Such a great time…  (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  5 STAR, not expensive, all inclusive, beautiful, fabulous, DO IT!)

While I was blogging from the R Lazy S,  you all probably heard me grumble about the internet access.  Well, to be fair, there was ample internet access for emails and texts, etc… but on purpose, and for good reason, the ranch limits huge data.  The reason?  We are there to commune with the Tetons, horses, each other and nature – not download movies and focus on our devices.

So, I wasn’t really grumbling about the internet access.  I’m thrilled that the kids and adults here are NOT focused on their devices.  I was just grumbling that it was tough to post all the pics I wanted to post for you all – while I was there…  But, I can post them now!

So, HERE GOES!

Such a cutie.

The glorious first morning.

The view from the corrals.

Me n Hubby. Hubby’s best friend is standing on Cash’s ear… The owner of R Lazy S, Kelly, is right on Hubby’s leg (in the blue vest).  Hubby is back on Rosie this year!

Our first ride near the canal.

The second morning

A ride through the forests.

Ont he third day, we started breaking away and riding per our fancies. I got to go on a solo ride with Kristin the Wrangler! We went far and wide!

The next day it rained – which was wonderful! We love riding in the rain! This is Fran, our friend from Grass Valley.

Adam took this dramatic photos.

My clothes were soaked! My gloves are on the bathroom heater!

The rain cleared.

Fran on Coral. Tom on Nic. Adam on a mare he loved but I forget her name. Bad me!  He only got her for one day.

Again through the forests.

Wrangler Rob helping us with our big coats.

Me, chewing… against the beautiful Sky Ranch.

Adam (on Joe) and Fran in front of me at Sky Ranch meadow. The meadow is HUGE.

Me waving at Adam on my very tall (and wonderful) horse, Cash.

A beautiful evening. I walked around by myself while everyone was at the cookout.

I saw this doe.

The next day was Team Penning. So. Much. Fun! That’s me, Hubby and Adam. We were a team.

And we WON again this year!

This was an amazing ride…

Over Joe’s ears.

Cash drinking wild water.

The horses (80 of them) going into their night pasture.

I was sitting in a porch swing when I took this.

One of the beautiful, fat and well trained horses in their (huge) night pasture.

Me on our last ride… out in the middle of nowhere. I could just hear The Good, The Bad and The Ugly music.

Me loving up Cash on our last ride.

The last evening. That doe reappeared.

As we left Wyoming, the skies darkened.

 It was all beautiful.  Go.  If you can, go.

I fell down while filming… but the horses look good anyway!!






We just got home tonight… and we are all tired and traveled out… so I thought I’d just show you a short video I took on our first day at the R Lazy S Ranch.

OK, so to set this up… I had been in the office after our 2nd ride of the day.  I think I was checking in with Cathy, the Ranch Manager.

Anyway, I heard a commotion and saw that the wranglers were running the horses into their night time, grassy pasture.  I could hear the horses running and screaming… and the CRACK of the bull whip (which just excites them and keeps all 80 horses from stopping along the way to eat grass…)

Oh My Gosh I was so excited, I burst out of the office door, ran full speed ahead while fumbling with my camera… AND FELL FLAT ON MY FACE!   I had totally forgotten about the steps outside the office.

There I was, writhing on the ground… but still managed to get my camera righted to video the horses running.

The funny part is that I knew my ankle really hurt, but I didn’t want to make any sound to ruin the video.  So I didn’t.  But towards the end, you hear me moan and laugh once I realized that my ankle was twisted, but totally fine.

Enjoy!

Click image to watch me fall… but still get the shot of these gorgeous horses!
