Ever wondered where an author gets their ideas?

I shot this video at the farm where I kept ‘Pumpkin’ Sally a few years ago with the help of Jacque Duncan and a wonderful group of horses. I am glad that I did as Sally, Willow and Cloud have now passed over the rainbow. Thought it would be nice to share it again. This video is ‘child’ approved. 🙂  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeVxH62HqOs

Better to ride a good horse for a year than an ass all your life. ~ Dutch Proverb

The Montana family made a big mistake!

They thought they were opening up their sprawling ranch house and their stables to four retired cowgirls and their horses. Turns out three of the four women aren’t cowgirls at all, and their horses aren’t either.

And then there is the cheating husband that came along for the ride.

The word ‘baggage’ just got a whole new meaning.

If you think senior living means the party is over, then you haven’t spent a night at the Silver Spurs Home for Aging Cowgirls where romance is in the air and flirting with another woman’s man can be murder.

Do you know what your grandmother is up to?
