Slick The Bachelor!

I hope that by now you all know our resident stallion, SLICK, (and Shanna Lady Rose's biological dad)... who belongs to our Bossman! What you may not know is that the Bossman's main goal in life...is getting SLICK layed! They must have made a pact a few years back...if only one of them was gonna get layed...it was gonna be SLICK!!!
I always have to remind myself that SLICK...as wonderful as he is to ride and be around...is still a STALLION...and his idea of foreplay is to bite anything within reach, including but not limited to my calve, thigh and maybe even a boob!
It seems that the last time that SLICK got laid was when Shanna Lady Rose ( formally the known as the horse, Lil' Lady) and lady just turned 7!!!
Hell, if you think the Bossman was cranky...SLICK was running neck & neck with the Bossman in the CRANKY department.
So...the Bossman filled out a profile for SLICK on the SB&WM (single black & white mare) website and found these 3 possible "dates" for SLICK!

Slick's 1st response was from my own "PONY EQUICUZ" Fritzy!!!
 And while SLICK was sure impressed with Fritzy's sassy stride and flashy "piece of" tail...it meant he would need to go to the PNW with the Desert Rose to meet & greet Fritzy properly, alas, it was not meant to be!

Slick's 2nd response to his ad came from NEW MEXICO in the high desert form the Desert Rose's dear blogger friend, Lisa from the Laughing Orca Ranch, whose paint mare BABY DOLL ( no...not my cousin BABY DOLL)
seemed to be looking for a strong man of her own! And even though the distance between Slick and Baby Doll was less than  a 6 hour drive...the Bossman nixed that idea...because there might be snow!!! Yes...Bossman is a woos when it come to cold! He will ride 8 hours in 110 degree weather...but not one mile if it is under 60 !!!
Close to wits his end...Slick begged the Bossman to find him a mare...Slick said that it did not even need to be a SB&WM...he was willing to LAY anymare!!!
Destiny seems to rear up her head whenever she pleases...and out of the blue at SLICK'S very own stables in the desert, there suddenly appeared a SB&WM!!! 
I can not tell you how many times SLICK got laid...but it was apparently enough to get the job done!!!

Yup...Doc says...there a BABY in there...
but since the last BABY looked like this
The Bossman asked the Doc..."Can you see if the BABY is BLACK & WHITE???

Last night...I had a dream that the new BABY had arrived...and yes it blew me away!!!

I just don't know how I will put up with 2 BOSSMEN!!!
Your Desert Rose!

Blown Away!

Thought I would share with you all an unexpected experience we had on a recent trail ride. The ride was 3 hours total in our Indian Canyon last week. It was a gorgeous day when 4 of us headed out. The Bossman was riding Lady (per my request) because the last few times we have ridden the canyon trail that you see us heading down to in the video... she has been PISSY! Baby Doll was on my trusty Jesse...who now nickers at Baby Doll when she goes to get him. Last summer he would turn his butt to her when she approached his stall and her little Baby Doll feelings were hurt. I kept my eye on them and found some tips for Baby Doll to improve her relationship with Jesse...and wa la, it worked so well that on a recent ride when Jesse and Baby Doll had a scramble that led to Jesse going down on his side, Jesse waited for Baby Doll to get out from under his tummy before getting himself up righted!!! My friend the Ghost rider needed her 2 horses to get some trail time so she brought me her Peruvian Passo BRIO for the ride. This would be my 1st ride on Brio though I had been on 2 rides when the Ghost rider was riding him. The first 2 hours of the ride went without incident and we were all marveling at the joy of doing what we love in this beautiful desert. As the trail headed southwest the light breeze became wind, until this is what we had to ride in. I am so sorry for the tilted camera...I could hardly keep the camera in my hands and did not realize I had turned it. However...if you are willing to tip your head or your computor for this short video...you will bee how we were almost BLOWN AWAY!

By the way, the wind was suddenly gone when we got to the bottom of the canyon to enjoy our lunch at the picnic grounds. BRIO was a real doll and such fun to ride...I have since ridden him a 2nd time! Shanna Lady Rose was on her best behavior...sure she would be with the Bossman...and I can't wait for this 4-somes next ride!!!
Your Desert Rose!
