Cowgirl Weekend

Once a Upon a Summer Weekend, ooh a year and a half or so ago…, there was a Cowgirl Weekend! My amazing friend Carol (who I met in high school but didn’t really get to know until well, Facebook, reintroduced us) has had a passion for horses her whole life. She has a handful at any given time at her house. We got to talking about how I should come and visit and do it up large – horses, shooting range, archery, EATING, the lot! I was beyond the moon excited to go.

While there I met this beautiful boy – Duke. Just look at him! He was ever, ever so patient with me. Letting me twist and turn in front of him, looking for the ‘perfect’ angle. Every now and then he’d look over at Carol with the complete expression of “what in the world is she doing??” None the less, he was a perfect gentleman the entire time!

It was an amazing weekend – lots and lots of eating – did I mention eating… I shot a rifle for the first time and LOVED it – still have my targets hanging around somewhere. For a beginner – I’m not a 1/2 bad shot! We also went over to the archery range. I have been dying to pick up a bow and arrow again since we did it in our high school gym class (yeah, not your average high school…). So much stinkin fun! I now still seriously contemplate getting a target and bow and arrow set for my backyard. I live on a 450 acre farm – what am I going to hit other than corn if I miss?? Yep! It is so going to happen, maybe this summer even!

But now back to Duke!

I mean really – just look at him – he is a thing of beauty!!┬áCarol and I plan on doing another Cowgirl Weekend this year. I can’t wait to see my boy Duke (well ok Carol too!)!

    Can’t tell you how thrilled I am with the photos. I’m so glad you think so highly of my “baby”. We had a great time too.

    Can’t wait ’til spring/summer. Hope to see you up here soon.
