NOTES FROM THE RANCH, IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS…






I have so much to write about… but so little time tonight.

So instead, I am going to show you images of the little things that I photographed because they added to my adventure – but didn’t fall into any large category like ‘riding’ and ‘eating’ and ‘scenery’.

I took this photo tonight when I finally walked down to the Snake River.  Can you believe how gorgeous this was?!  The light was beyond spectacular!  It took me about 5 minutes to walk from my cabin to this spot.

Remember how I told you that the ground squirrels were running amok on my cabin roof?  Well, they had a condo complex right nearby...

Aha!  I finally caught one of the ground squirrels in action!  Here he is through the screen on my front window.  He had been running all around the porch and up and down the sides of my cabin.  He was such a busy little thing...

grounds

This was one of the little darlings sucking up some drops of lemonade – I cannot blame him since we all drank the lemonade in gallons!

babies

These are the two babies that live in the front paddock of the Ranch. The sorrel will scream and come running whenever we return from a ride… Very cute!

baby2

This is the youngest of the babies. So friendly and beautiful.

bird

This may be difficult to decipher, but this is a hummingbird nest with two baby hummingbirds in it. There were a zillion hummingbirds on the ranch – loved seeing them at the feeders on each porch. My feeder had daily visitors. It had to be filled every morning!

brnad

On Saturday afternoons, the maintenance men will brand any leather item you might have with the R Lazy S brand. As you can see, he is heating the brands while my half chaps and boots wait to be branded.

brand cu[

These are the brands. A big and little version…

brand 3

He did my boots first. Oh, a ‘lazy’ letter (Lazy S) means that the letter is on its
side instead of vertical.

cabin veiw

This is the view from my cabin. I loved it! However, most of the other cabins had even better views…

deer

This was a deer we saw on our evening walk. She just sat there… so I took her picture.

donk

Angel lives here. She is everywhere. I took this shot this morning. She was outside the saddling pens.

doorway

I had never seen this type of man-door for a corral… have you? You can get in but the horses cannot get out. However, one of the wranglers told me that they made this one a bit too big because Emerald the mini-donkey can get in… Can you see Sky watching me and wondering what the heck I was doing…?!

eversafe

This is the edge of my porch swing and my tiny EverSafe mosquito repellant house nestled in the corner. See it? It is the green thing there. I brought it from home to get rid of the mosquitoes on my deck and it really worked!! I had none!

I loved sitting on the swings that they had erected all over the ranch. Here I am sitting on the swing outside the Rec Room while I was waiting to go on a morning ride.

noses

Two of the ranch horses. I loved going up to the fences and watching the horses interact with each other. These two were buddies and they came over to check me out.

photo

This was a photo of one of the many bears we all saw… I saw a total of 5. Yowsa.

swing

This is me again, sitting on the swing in front of the lodge.

This is the view from that swing...

These are the two gals from Alabama and me!

heading out

I shot this at 6:30 in the morning as the Wranglers were going out to bring in the saddle horses from their night time grazing pastures.

cabin

This was my cabin. I loved the swing.

haycart

A simple hay cart. They actually used this… I saw it all over the place.

emerald

This is Emerald, the mini-donkey. She was locked in her paddock because she is on a diet.

ridesue3

I gave up taking photos on rides because they never looked anything like the real thing. As you can see… this was taken on a ride (do you see Sky’s ear?) but the perspective is not clear. We are on a high peak. I’m looking down over a cliff, into a valley and they beyond to a grove of trees, then the peaks beyond. It was incredible but not clear here.

This is Marvin.  He is a friend of Sky's.

thunderhead

Here we are, just coming in from a ride. You can see the foul weather looming. We beat it in.

balloon

One morning I saw a balloon.

whispers

So many of the horses were really good friends. I never see this at my house… they exhibited such love – this was a big herd so maybe they formed stronger bonds? – not sure, but I had many opportunity to see this kind of thing among pairs.

I shot this tonight on my walk... this is on the ranch.

  Well, I have tons more pics, but I will save those for tomorrow!
