  • Palabras Pintorescas: Knowing one’s history is crucial

    I looked forward to the recent senior profile column by Lupita Gonzales, a great story about our friends and neighbors, George and Joanne Sprenger. I met George and Joanne in the summer of 1975, right after they had come to Las Vegas. And, I had another story about them.

    Our Gascon Ranch sits at the end of the Gascon-Rociada Valley.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Majestic Watrous willow trees are landmarks

    I continue to be surprised at what I find in very old newspapers I have in my collection. One of my favorites is “The Valmora Sun,” published way back in the 1930s.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Tapaderos: Those funny-looking stirrup covers

    I was surprised to see the host of Antiques Roadshow, Mark Wahlberg, introduce a recent segment by riding a horse, no less. He also visited a museum where valuable old Mexican saddles were on exhibit.

    It is easy for me to think that everybody knows how and why a saddle works the way it does. It is built to protect both the horse and the rider and when used properly can save a lot of problems, from the saddle sores on the horses back to a real wreck when a cinch breaks and the riders and saddle land on the ground.

  • Promotional video shot at spinning mill

    The Mora Valley Spinning Mill will soon be featured in New Mexico True promotional videos. Recently, Patricia Antelles and Melinda Hess of Convivial Design Inc. visited the mill, located in the heart of Mora, to capture footage for the video.

    Some of the footage recorded included various shots of the woven rugs, the wool-to-yarn manufacturing process, and the coffee bar.
