The winners are: Sassy Glass Designs (4-pack of greeting cards) and Black Feather Farm (4-pack of greeting cards and framed print). Congratulations!
Thanks everyone for commenting/entering the contest. I wish I could give you all something! I'll be hosting another giveaway soon, so stay tuned.
By the way, both Sassy Glass Designs and Black Feather Farm have great blogs. Be sure to check out the link to their Etsy shops on their blogs, also. Both very creative and talented gals!
Where are the carrots? Cilantro? Parsley? Oregano?
I have to admit, a large part of my garden is dedicated to growing things just for the bunnies. They prefer their veggies to be organic, thank you very much.

Stay tuned cowgirls, we'll be rolling out some new designs very soon! You just might not be able to live without the goodies we have in our saddlebags...

When I go to a gift shop, I'm always drawn to the card section, looking for cards with great cowgirl or western images. I always have a stash on hand for different occasions. Sometimes I love the pics so much I just keep them for myself!
Recently I came across a company called Shadow West and it's owner, Ed Delegato. He was kind enough to send me some samples of their products. The images are right up my alley ~ cowgirls and horses (among others) and have great inspiring messages.

Actually, it's about something much less cute and cuddly.... I'm talking about FLIES. Yep, the flies have arrived. In full force. Yuck.
We do what we can: keep the stalls cleaned, use fly spray on the horses, put out fly traps and, of course, put fly masks on every day.
Piper recently outgrew her "baby" yearling mask. So now she is wearing a big horse size. It seemed that from one day to the next it just didn't fit her anymore.
We start putting Sassy's mask on even before the flies start showing up. She has has blue eyes and pink skin around one of them, so it serves as sun protection as well.
As silly as he looks, it's working, and his hair is slowly starting to grow back. The things we do for our animals! (Looks like he is saying in this pic, "The things I do for YOU")

Not the most attractive looking thing...But a coat of paint does wonders! I had red paint left over from painting the chicken coop and bunny casa (wouldn't want our animals' houses not to match...)
Stay tuned ...

Apparently, it also comes apart too easily....Meet Demolition Goat...also known as Valentine.
(Who? Me?) She looks innocent enough, but looks can be deceiving....
She has knocked down their house countless times. She head butts it, gets inside and pushes up on the roof until the whole thing comes apart and tumbles down around her. Then she stands there in the middle of the rubble looking surprised. "Hey, what happened?" So, we would put it back together, only to have her do it again the next week. Or the next day. It's a little game we play. But, we're tired of the game, so this weekend we are building a new house.
We might need steel posts sunk in concrete in order to win against this crazy goat!

Ellen, the seamstress behind Thunder Moon Designs, also makes these great leather wall hangings. I really dig these.
How about an ostrich longhorn?
