It's A....

We had the big Reveal, and the baby bump photo shoot! Cowgirl is comparing bumps in the above photo.

What do you think it is, Cowgirl? A colt or a filly? Will we have another little Cowgirl around here or another little cowboy? 

Cowgirl says, start buying blue! It's a cowboy! (Although, if it had been a Cowgirl, she would also get blue!) 




His daddy thought it was a boy, and had to take heat from Team Girl, but in the end he was right. 

They had stockings made for their future girl and boy babies before they were even pregnant. I got both stocking and filled them with baby gifts. Camden won this round. 

This will be our 15th grandchild! Woot! Woot! But the first addition from my kids. I have been a blessed grandma for almost nineteen years now, and all I can say is, bring them on! Our hearts are big enough, and have an infinite supply of love.

In other news, I brought my raven home. "Nevermore" now perches above my piano. 






It brings me happiness, there with the other ravens, and horses and flowers, friends and family have made for me.

Tomorrow I'm off to see Tumbleweed again. We will be working on the lope. Apparently, he did a bad yesterday while my trainer was giving lessons. He went down to roll with her on him. She said it was like he forgot she was there, so she reminded him. I can only imagine his surprise!  She said she had been focused on making sure her student didn't get bucked off, so he took advantage. 

And that's why we take them to trainers! 

He did similar things with me on the ground, so I knew he had that card in his deck.  Funny coincidence, one of the stories about my horse, Cowboy, is when he did the exact same thing with a rider! Those two appear to have some similarities! 

Wish me luck!

  1. Congratulations on the new grand baby! Love the photo. Your raven looks great on the wall where you can see it and take inspiration from it while playing your music.

    Tumbleweed is funny. My horse did that to me too. He was very young (3) and we were in a lesson after dinner. He just got tired and decided to go down for a rest. Ever try to keep a 17 hand warm blood from hitting the ground, not easy but we did it. Maybe young horses just get tired and and decide it’s nap time! He was also very dramatic and used to drag his back feet and leave a snail trail behind him when he didn’t want to work. They all have distinct personalities! Have fun with Tumbleweed today,

    1. Oh my goodness! That’s horrible. I can’t even imagine how you kept him up. She said it was like he forgot she was even there, so she had to remind him. Like, hey, if we’re just standing around, how about I scratch my itch in this sand? Lol.

  2. Fun news, a grandson!! Beautiful photo of two radiant expectant moms. Complete with matching colors. How did they reveal the gender? Just curious. It sure has become an event these days. Have fun with Tumbleweed!

    1. Thanks! They stood on the upper deck, while family gathered on the lawn, and they had these big poppers that shot out blue confetti. Our daughter in law planned the event, and she had it decorated to the 9’s. Big balloon archways and signs. She made lots of goodies, too. It was quite an event. Unfortunately, it rained that day, but everyone brought pop up tents, and it wasn’t very cold, so it was still quite pleasant. Everyone had a blast. First one I’d ever been to.

    3. Aww, your daughter looks so happy! What a special day. Thanks for sharing your joy. I've never been to a gender reveal. My daughter chose to wait to find out until all three of my grands were born. People get creative and really into it these days.

  3. Congratulations! I'm sure this grandson will hold a special place in your heart! I often wish I could have had grandchildren, but my daughter was unable to conceive. I love that first photo!
    Ever had a horse try to roll when you are riding in water? That's an adventure!
    That bead in the Raven's mouth is from the Day of the Dead in the Latin culture, when souls who have passed on are remembered, so it is actually quite a poignant painting.

    1. Rolling in water! Lol!! I don’t want to try it!!

      Thanks for the information on the bead. I didn’t know that. It adds another layer.

  4. 15 Grandchildren?! I am jealous. I would love even one. Congratulations on the boy. Poor Tumbleweed just had a baby moment. :)

    1. Yes, he did. He’s trying to be all grown up, but sometimes...baby.
