Unusual Clouds Steal the Show

Tuesday, April 19 –

We had a nice shower today which followed on the heels of some earlier rain on the weekend. We didn’t get as much as Cim and Courtney did at Afton, but this will certainly help grow some summer grass. The clouds were so colorful and interesting all afternoon and as the evening progressed, they became more and more dramatic and unusual. Stockton and Nathan were also working on some things around the pens and I was able to snap a few pictures of them, too.

The horses are curious.


Stockton is hiding under the empty lick tub to try and aggravate his dog, Steel.

Elk Hunt

Friday, September 4 –

Nathan and his brother Chris went looking for Elk in Colorado again this year. As you can see, they didn’t spend an enormous amount of time taking pictures.

Apricot Harvest

Friday, June 12 –

Nathan and his mom were able to pick apricots from a tree in Matador. It had been pretty well picked over, but with a tall ladder, Nathan was able to reach some real beauties near the top limbs. He and Carolina made quick work of halving them and getting them in the freezer.

Horse School

Sunday, May 31 –

Nathan, Stockton and Carolina went riding this afternoon. It had been a while since they had all gotten to go together. Nathan said his horse especially needed a lot of “schooling”.

These pictures were taken when they returned.
