Charlie wasn’t happy when I told him they might be calling for more snow this weekend. But he sure does look cute in the snow, so I won’t mind if we get it. ❄️ #farrierlife #equine #charlie #charliethemini #minihorse #tuffrider #fashionable #cute #snow #snowday #winter #cold #minihorse #horsesofinstagram #ig_equine #farrier #equestrianlife

When we stretch our creativity it doesn’t always turn out like we envision. There was a time when that would have completely discouraged me. And I would’ve just given up trying. But what I am learning as I get older, is that it just means I need to try harder, and practice more. This image is a great example. I had a vision for what I wanted, and I fell a little short of the mark. I know I told you guys yesterday in my live, that I wasn’t going to show you what I shot yesterday, but because I didn’t execute this the way I saw it in my head I figured it was a good learning experience for us all. Keep trying, keep your chin up, keep practicing — because practice makes perfect. . . . In other news Dino was, as usual, the BEST model for me and was properly rewarded with lots of cow cake! Do you believe that practice makes perfect?! #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #westernphotography #westernphoto #westernart #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hoarfrost #hifromsd #practicemakesperfect #workingranchhorse #workingranchimages #workingranchhorse #ranchhorse

I read this on @therustedroan’s Page today and it was too good not to share.... . *live your life in such a way that you die empty* . I couldn’t agree more. We have all been granted gifts from The Creator. It’s our job to share these with the world. Whatever you gift is, share it — freely. Inspire those around you to be their best. Lift others up in encouragement. Never underestimate your worth. I plan to die empty. I’m going to give everything I have to the folks around me.

Find the beauty through the fog of a gray day. The haze of rain clouds. Through the storm. Through the frost. In spite of the cold. Always look for the good. It’s not often easy, but it is worth it. Do you look for the good? Can you see life’s beauty through the storm? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #westernphotography #westernphoto #westernart #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #shotoniphone #frost #hoarfrost #hifromsd #southdakota #winter

Hello, beautiful girl, Cosmo, and the awesome people of the 'gram! ... Today I thought I'd share a little bit about how our horses live all Winter. Many of you know they all live outside -- with the exception of our two old studs, and sometimes Avie (just because he's my special Diva) -- and those three only get to come in if the weather is going to be *really* bad. ... Equine Winter coats grow in based on the amount of daylight the horse gets -- so as the days get shorter the horse grows more hair. ... Did you know that a horse can loft their coat, up or down as needed to stay warm? That is, assuming we let them grow a full winter coat! Horses that live in the North, with even shorter days, tend to produce more melatonin, which allows for the coat to grown in longer and thicker than a horse that's kept in a warmer, Winter environment such as say, Texas. Lofting is essentially the individual hairs in the Winter coat "springing" up as it gets colder. This creates air pockets that provide extra insulation! Basically it keeps the horse’s natural body heat from escaping. It's the same for us when we wear a winter jacket. It's not the jacket itself that adds the warmth to us -- it's how much body heat the jacket keeps from escaping that keeps us warm! ... If the horse gets rained or snowed on, that can diminish their "lofting" capability. But when you see horses with snow on their back -- that snow actually acts as an insulator and helps them stay warm too! ... So, next time you see a horse standing in the snow eating hay, don't worry, he's likely not cold and is probably enjoying his time outside. ... Do you blanket your horses in the Winter? Did you learn anything from this tip? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #horsekeeping101 #winterweather #ranchlife #ag #lifebetweentheears #instahorses_post #westernphotography #westernphoto #horsetips101 #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #hifromsd #dxandthecity

I burnt some midnight oil last night -- thinking about all the wonderful suggestions y'all made for content I share with you -- and there's a few hours left to comment in my story -- so if you've not done so and want to be heard, check it out. . . . My brain was on over-drive, trying to plan how to best share my photography experiences, my 3 decades of horse ownership experience and the lessons I've learned on the rodeo road. . . . Start looking for a weekly segment on horsemanship/horse training/horse nutrition, and a weekly post on what inspires me! . . . Again, thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart for taking time out of your day to encourage me and share with me what you want to see me talk about. <3 . . . #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #westernphotography #westernphoto #westernart #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hoarfrost #frostyhorse #hifromsd #southdakotagram

I finally got to throw a leg over a horse today. It was my first ride of 2019! And since Cosmo is one of the only horses here that doesn’t have ringworm, she got tagged. Y’all know I hated that! Haha! . . . I logged a few important dates in my planner, wrote down some goals for this year, and started working on some things I’ve wanted to execute for a while but haven’t been brave enough to take the leap to do. However, sometimes you have to jump to see if you can fly, so that’s what I’m doing! . . . The photography gallery for @artofthecowgirl is coming together and I’m so honored to be part of that event. . . . Basically, I kicked this Monday in the tail. . . . Almost all the snow has melted but I’m holding tight to these images from last week. I’m not sorry to keep flooding my feed with frosted horses and I hope you’re not sorry to see them. . . . How was your Monday? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #westernphotography #westernphoto #westernart #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hoarfrost #winter #hifromsd #southdakota

Cheval and I were going to ride today, but we both kinda felt like this and decided scratches and cuddles was the best plan of action. Chic wasn’t so lucky. He actually had to work today.

The older I get the less I care about the rat race. The things that matter in this life aren’t material, they’re the intangibles. I’m surrounded by kick ass people, rich in love and have everything I could ever need.

Dino the dreamboat... let’s just pretend that I didn’t have to photoshop out the lovely bout of ringworm he’s got — right smack in the middle of his face where the Hackamore sits. I’ll have to ride him in mind for a few more days! What’s on tap for your Thursday?

I spent the first day of 2019 in my office. I did a little organizing, began work on a project for @artofthecowgirl and put a few important dates in my planner. It was not a warm day yesterday and I was grateful to have something I could do inside. I’m so excited about what 2019 has to offer! I’m going to make the most of every opportunity and create some of my own! What plans do you have for 2019? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #cowboy_features #hoarfrost #winter #southdakota #hifromsd

“Tomorrow is the first blank page in a 365 page book. Write a good one.” -Brad Paisley . . . I struggle with setting goals: mostly because if I don’t reach them I tend to beat myself up. But this year I’m setting a few. If I don’t get there I don’t get there but we are going to give it our best effort. After all, the try should be what matters. . . . My primary goal is to finish filling my WPRA permit. I’m going to trust my horse, his ability, my ability to ride him as fast as he can run and become the team in the arena that we are on the ranch. At home, there’s no job we can’t do. . . . To reach that goal I’m going to need to spend even more time horseback, ride daily (which I do, but I need to ride more than 3 head), and take better care of myself. I’m going to start by completing a 60 day transformation with @riding_strong. . . . What goals have you set for yourself? What steps will you take to reach them? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #newyearnewyou #setagoal #sdc_negativespace #highkey

Surround yourself with people who add the “er” to your happy. . . . My Mr and I always say, we are the “Er” in our happy”er”. He’s my biggest cheerleader and I’m his. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. . . . Together we are better, stronger. He’s gone for work better than half the year — I don’t hold it against him. The world needs him. . . . We give each other the freedom to be the best individual we can be. That means he’s sometimes home when I’m gone rodeoing. Often we are like ships passing in the night. . . . Are you the “er” in someone’s happier? . #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #snow #winter #hoarfrost #hifromsd #happytribe

Frosted horses’s manes... not going to lie, my favorite of all favorites are horses in the snow, with hoar frost painting their manes, tails and whiskers. Running through the pasture to capture these moments when it’s barely above zero are worth it to me. And my new @arenushealth socks and fingerless gloves make a huge difference in my ability to stay warm. I’ve been missing them my whole life. Not anymore. I’ve said goodbye to cold feet and hands! Ask me how to get some for your cold weather and how to get a discount! @arenushealth #EquineHealth #EquineNutrition #arenusanimalhealth #teamarenus #benefabbysorenomore #sorenomore #PerformanceHorse #HealthyAsAHorse #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #hifromsd #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #hoarfrost #winter #snow #frostcoveredhorses

Before and after. It was dry enough to work on Chic’s contracted heels today. So that’s pretty cool. I need to work on getting him on a fixed schedule so the problem doesn’t get out of hand again. But he’s like the shoe maker’s child, he always goes without. Maybe he’s learned his lesson about acting up while I’m trimming.
