  • Palabras Pintorescas - Three friends who no longer have to worry

    The calendar says it’s January 15th, and that translates into a very cold start to our new year. It was 12 degrees below zero last night, and it is 15 degrees above zero as I write this. Mark Twain noted that he never knew water could make a river so beautiful. I could paraphrase that with “ I never knew below zero temperatures for a long period of time could make ice so hard.” Yes our creeks are almost frozen solid and running water is hard to find.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - The dieting regimen back at the ranch

    Yes, winter has arrived in our mountains. The days are short, The temperature rarely gets to 40 degrees in the warmest part of the day, and it is cold to colder at night, often below zero. The folks who predicted a warm winter missed their mark I’d say. Global warming hasn’t hit here yet.

    I gave up on making New Year resolutions a long time ago.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - Stopping Nancy in her horseshoe tracks

    The very large windows in my house give me a vantage point. I can really just watch the world go by, and by some standards that might be judged as a big waste of time.

    One day last week I watched our now retired Betsy mare do her darndest to rearrange a particular small area of her pasture so she could roll in comfort. She pawed the snow and underlying grass in a circle, spinning and turning until she thought she had it about right. She used her right front hoof for this. Then she carefully lay down in this circle and rolled and rolled.
