Cowgirljlynn...You've Earned Your Spurs!

My sister Cowgirljlynn has been coming down to visit me...and The King! I am afraid to admit that I have never seen her this often before The King came to spend the summer with his Auntie Rose!!! However her visits have enabled us to have some great rides together. They started out easy so that The King and Cowgirljlynn could get to know each other. After her second visit I decided it was time to take them out for the real test and trailer them out to ride "the big trails"! My Dear Friend and Barbie were with us for this great adventure and one of our riding group members joined us with her gelding, Murphy.

What Cowgirljlynn did not know was the last time that my Dear Friend and I rode together Barbie was in heat and quite frankly...acting "slutty"! Well, The King, ever a ladies man decided that it did not matter that he had been gelded about 22 years ago. He began nuzzling Barbie's neck...dropped ( you know), and I think was getting ready to mount her when I spotted a, behavior of his and we immediately separated the 2 for a TIME OUT!!!

So for our "big ride" the moment The King saw Barbie...he only had eyes for her. He was not happy when Barbie and her mom went off in the other direction and tried desperately to follow her. He was not happy about the gelding between him and Barbie and he pretty much was a challenge to keep focused on his own business...not Barbie's. Since The King had been such a gentleman to my sissy Cowgirljlynn she was surprised that his "dark side" had surfaced. But no need to worry all of Cowgirljlynn's lessons with her Prince Albert paid off and she handled The King to perfection, even taking her turn at leading the ride.

So to Sissy Cowgirljlynn... Jesse and I are thrilled to award to her...

Your Desert Rose!


  1. YIPPEE KAY AY! You did it Cowgirl! Way to go!

  2. Good for you, Cowgirl Jlynn!! I am so proud of you. Managing a horse through the trickier times is how you become a better rider. Your confidence is growing! I can't wait to see you riding the King this summer!

  3. Congrats Auntie Cowgirl J Lynn! I am so proud of you!!! I can't wait to see you ride the King next month!

  4. We are all proud of this Cuz. Talk about Cowgirl Up! I'm just surprised that it took this long for her to realize that she would enjoy this "pony world".

  5. And wow...what pretty spurs they are, too. Too purty to get dirty! hehe!

    Those darn mares....always acting so moody, cranky, stubborn, and slutty. Makes me think my next horse should finally be a gelding. gah!


  6. Whoo Hoo! I knew you'd be knipping at my heels! LOLO Really though, I'm so happy for you! You deserve it, you'd worked hard too! These spurs have not come easy. :-)


We wish you Happy Trails
Jesse and his Desert Rose!
