  • 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.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Gascon: The heart of snow country

    There is a cloudless sky overhead, and it is a bright 55 day in mid February as I write this. Yes, it is too warm, too sunny, and the snowpack melts quickly. That is not good news here.

    However, I have just discovered a weather story in one of my very old newspapers. This is from the 1939, February edition of the monthly “Valmora Sun.” published by our tuberculosis patients who were “taking the cure” there, with my doctor father, Carl Gallenthien, where I was born and raised.
