My future cowboys

Introducing "Sis," Greg's horse. We aquired her early last summer from Greg's friend Russ. Greg keeps saying he bought the horse for me, but we all know that's not true since spending more than two minutes with her would ensure my quick and timely demise.

Greg dreams of owning a lot of land and spending his time off "cowboying." Doesn't that sound grand? Just in case you can't detect it, there's more than a drop of sarcasm in my written word. Even if I got allergy shots (which is another of Greg's and my dreams), I'm not sure I'll ever enjoy ranch animals as much as he does. HOWEVER, the thought of Greg teaching our boys to work hard - managing the land and wrangling horses and cows - does kind of appeal to me. If my calculations are correct, that would at least guarantee time for me to go on a shopping trip that lasted more than 45 minutes, right? Greg asks if my motives are selfish, and I respond with an exuberant, "Yep!"

Oh Emery. Ranch life is the BEST! Payton is amazing with the cattle and horses and he is ALMOST 5. That is Sam's and my dream...Ranch! You guys should come visit in June and help brand since I cant do much work after a c-section.

Wow SIS is BEAUTIFUL!!! Greg you look pretty good too (I have to say that, you are my brother!) And what can I say about the kids... They are their Aunts nephews (just kidding)! Oh and Emery I don't think that is selfish... Milk it for all it is worth!

You guys own a horse?! I am so jealous! I use to go riding every now and then when I was at Ricks College and I thought it was so much fun!

Em I think I had your daughter... my child's dream life would be to live at your house...she is just a wee bit horsey obsessed. You can come and pick her up anytime and take her to her rightful home. J/K :)

I think ranch life would make a great vacation! Having the one horse would be wonderful!
That reminds me - you haven't met Sylvia!
