The sunsets at DX Ranch never disappoint. Ben and I had a blast at the DX Ranch this weekend from roping lessons with Dave, the wedding in the big barn, listening to Steve Turner, and hanging out with my friends that turned into family and bringing back so many internship memories. The best part was when they all said welcome home.💙 • • • #iphone8plusphotography #Weddings #RanchLife #TheDXRanch #WestRiver #Sunsets #Summer2018 #SecondHome #JuneWeddings

The world just got a little brighter! Last night my second, and last mare that was scheduled to foal, delivered a healthy, chromed out baby boy. She is a maiden mare, half sister to Cosmo and replaced her mother in the broodmare band because we lost her last year. I think I have a Barn name in mind but I don’t know about a registered name. Mom is DX Nukethis Bombshel and dad is WDX Banjobreeze Baby. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #babyhorses #foal #futureworldbeater

Every year it’s the same reaction: a baby! This is a full sister to my dun colt, Issimo that many of you have seen here. She doesn’t have a name yet, registered or otherwise. So, what are your suggestions? For those of you wondering, her dam is registered as Ibaflitnbird (Dolce) and her sire is Wdx Nukem (Nuke). And.... go! #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #foals #babyhorses

The babies started hitting the ground this week! Here’s the second one born- he broke the streak we had going of 10 fillies in a row!

I will always reserve a special place in my heart for the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation and DX Ranch. The place and people that helped me grow as a person and with horses. The views that made me fall in love with western South Dakota. The memories that will never fade. I am forever blessed to have spent my summer 2016 at DX Ranch and I’m blessed to go out and visit this weekend for a bit.🐴🐮 • • • #TheDXRanch #summerof2016 #Sunsets #SouthDakota #SoDak #cheyenneriverreservation #RanchLife #SpecialPlace #FathersDayBranding #Branding

Spring on the prairie in #SouthDakota is full of color and new life.

It was a gorgeous, albeit warm day today! We branded in the morning, and moved replacements in the afternoon! Life is grand! This is our big celebration week on the Ranch. We brand on Father’s day weekend every year, and today part of my family from Texas arrived! Monday, more of them arrive! It’s going to be a great week! As for the rest of our Saturday night, we are all going to bed! We are wild like that! #lifebetweentheseears #lifebetweentheears #throughtheirears #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #palomino #hifromsd

The best camera is the one you have in your hand. Tonight that was my iPhone 10. The clouds were spectacular. But getting the horse to stand still when you have to be so close to her to get the image you want, wasn’t so easy, because she kept wanting me to scratch her! So this is what I captured. It doesn’t do the sky, any justice. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #thatsouthdakotasky

Pretty epic Wednesday views, right? Yesterday was an amazing day. I wore a little blood, a little calf snot, a lot of cattle poop, and wouldn’t trade any of it for anything.

The three musketeers, Bob, Banker and Dash. These three are nearly inseparable in the horse herd. Banker and Dash are the same age, Bob is a year behind them but is the biggest. Do you have friends in your life that stick by you no matter what? Give them a shout!

“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ~Winston Churchill . . . Which are you?

This is a face of wisdom, kindness, thoughtfulness and stability. Horses have limitless potential to be all of the aforementioned if we as humans give them the chance to be horses. We can’t anthropomorphize them into our box, or we take away their ability to be a horse: to share with us all the good they hold inside. They don’t get mad, they’re not cheaters or dishonest: quite the opposite. The horse will show us every shortcoming we have If we listen. They’ll help us improve ourselves to become better than we ever thought we could be. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #bethebestyou #selfimprovement #neverstoplearning #neverstopimproving

Sunset visits to the horse herd are good for your soul. And they’re especially fun when the horses come running to see you! I’m fairly certain they thought it was because we had oats. Not this time boys, just lots of scratches for your itchy backs!!! • • This is the best time of year to halter break colts seeing as how they really get into being scratched since they’re shedding their thick winter coats. • • #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #thegoldenhour #sunset

I am a work in progress where it comes to looking for solutions instead of problems. But I’m trying. And that’s all any of us can do. Find a way to get it done even if you’re feeling like it’s not possible.

My little mare escaped this morning. That’s what I get for using a dummy hot-wire fence. It’ll be hot by this afternoon tho! The good news is, she mostly followed me back to her pen. It’s a gorgeous Spring morning in South Dakota. It’s warm, the birds are singing, the sky is blue, the grass is green and we couldn’t ask for much else!

The past couple days have not been without challenges. The pickup got me here but it wasn’t pretty and a few hours after arrival was in the shop. Today, the generator that was supposed to run my trailer for the week quit. I guess this is one of those times when we are tested on how good we are getting at not being bothered and going with the flow. The good news is the pickup is fixed, my horses are sound and healthy and I’ve decided I’m gonna sleep good no matter where I land. Not ideal, but it’s the cards I’m dealt so I just as well smile. Besides, I’m gonna Get to run down that alley that says “gateway of champions” and that means I’m pretty fortunate. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #lifebetweentheears #lifeisgood Ps: if anyone has a generator they want to loan me for a couple days that’d be super. :-)

As we head into a big week of barrel racing, I’m reminding myself that the only person I need to please on a daily basis is me. I need to set my goals and not let others influence how I ride. I’ve chosen two things to focus on this week and the rest will take care of itself. If we get too strung out or worry too much about what others think — instead of doing what we know is best for us —anxiety will often set in and shit might fall apart. So, the moral of the story is, do what you do for you, because it works for you and don’t let someone else dictate your success or goals. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #goals #dxjurassicclassic #bethebestyou

This is probably one of my all-time favorite photos of me and a horse. My sister @meganmz79 took this image of me with Dino in something like 2012. I should have saved it for a #throwbackthursday post but I’m feeling the horse love today and figured “why wait?” I’m fairly certain this image is the closest thing to capturing how much I love Dino (or horses in general).

Four inches of wet, heavy snow this morning gave way to wet, muddy conditions this afternoon. The grass is gonna look good, y’all! . . . . Dino trotted through the muck like the ranch horse pro he is, and we managed to mostly stay clean. See my story if you want to see how muddy my @krickrose mohair cinch is! Haha! . . . It was a good ride. . . . I found a calf that was born in the mud. @dxdesigns came out, dried her off, gave her some Nurse Mate and got her up and sucking. . . . Her mom needed to listen to the line in Pitch Perfect where @rebelwilson’s character says, “make good choices!” You know, like have your calf somewhere other than a mud hole? Just sayin’! . . . Spring in South Dakota is never boring.

This is pretty much what it looks like outside today. A fresh, wet three inches of snow...The weather has been kind of fickle lately but the moisture makes the grass happy so I won’t complain! The blizzard that came through last weekend caused the cancellation of the barrel race this weekend. So, to practice being flexible and going with the flow, I’m headed South sooner than I had anticipated but hopefully to better weather! ;-) #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #snow #spring #hifromsd #winterwonderland #mudislife

It’s only Tuesday, but I feel like it’s Thursday. It’s been crazy and has involved lots of running around. Sometimes when life gets that way we forget to take time for ourselves. We forget to be still, we forget to be grateful and sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. There’s only one of us, so we should take time to meditate, do our yoga, go for a run, sit in the silence; find a way to recharge. How do you find time to press pause? Do you do it as often as you should? I’m headed to press pause now! #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #bethebestyou #blackandwhite #bnwphotography #sunflare #teamcanon

Yesterday, someone mentioned “giving grace to others” as their goal for the week. . . . That got me thinking, how about we give some grace to ourselves too? Forgive ourselves for our “perceived” shortcomings or failures? I for one am terribly hard on myself and forget to focus on any success, or things gone right . . . Instead, I immediately run to what I didn’t accomplish, what I didn’t do, what I should have done, INSTEAD, of relishing the little win, or the accomplishment, no matter what, or how small. . . . So, this week, I’m going to give myself some grace. I’m going to accept and acknowledge any steps, any progresses, and build on them. . . . I vow to keep the demons of negativity and defeat on the sidelines, where they belong. How about you? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #itsallaboutperspective #bluesky #wideangle

He heard that cow-calf pair on the other side of the ridge. I couldn’t hear anything but the wind whistling in my ears. The sun is shining but it isn’t as warm out there as it looks!

Weathering life’s storms is easier when you have a good support system to help you through your troubles. Sometimes, though, you have to hunker down and wait for it to pass, dust yourself off and get back at it when it’s over. In this seemly endless winter complaints do no good. They just put a kink in your back. So enjoy each day you’re granted.

I love the East side of the sky during a sunset. I love that side of the sky even more, when it’s cloudy and stormy during sunset. Sometimes the beauty in our life is found where we least expect it. Never be afraid to search for beauty in unexpected places. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #beautifulskys

Slogging through muddy pastures is a bit like life sometimes: it ain’t always pretty and it ain’t always clean but it’s gotta get done! 🤣 #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #palomino #getoutdoors #hifromsd #cowboy_features

Time, it doesn’t stand still. It’ll bend you, it’ll break you to it’s will. So don’t waste a minute, just sit right in it, and sometimes, hell, all the time, feel. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #spring #cloudyskies #palomino

Does anyone else find it hard to hang art? I mean I have a lot of my work framed and I’m terrified to hang it up because I’m afraid I’ll decide I don’t like it after the fact. And then I’ll have a hole in the wall. I mean, it’s not like it’s irreparable, right? Please tell me I’m not alone! Someone? Anyone? #horse #horses #bestofequines #Equinephotography #horsesofinstagram #horselife #equine #equestrians #instahorses_ #ig_ruralamerica #ig_equine #raw_horses #pocket_horses #workingranchmagazine #ranching #ag #aqha #aqhaproud #snow #winter #snowyhorse #teamcanon #thedxranch #ranch #ranchlife #equinephotography

Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Love is like the horse — he knows no envy or pride. A good horse is patient and kind. He’s thoughtful and deliberate. If he trusts you will let you ride him through fire. There’s nothing quite like a good horse. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #dxjurassicclassic #blackandwhite #bnw_captures #teamcanonusa #highkey #sdc_negativespace

Success should be defined by you and no one else. Letting other people define your successes will do nothing but discourage you. Empower yourself and define your own success!!!! This is my struggle and I aim to overcome! How about you? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #selfimprovement #empoweryou #defineyourownsuccess #blackandwhite #bnwphotography #sunflare

That look you get when you find yourself in a confined space for the first time... DX And The City was certain jail isn’t for her. That would be pretty hard from her perspective — always having lived in wide open spaces and then find yourself, first in a trailer and then in a stall! Who can blame her for the disgust in her expression? #thedxranch #ranchorse #aqha #aqhaproud #quarterhorse #shessopretty #sheissofast #futureworldchampion
