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

A ride first thing in the morning to gather some escaped yearlings and put them altogether again is about the best way to start a day — especially when it’s on Banjo! #banjothewildstallion #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #lifebetweentheears #lifebetweentheseears

Trips to visit the mares are the best. Two new babies on the ground with more to come! I took the big camera with me today so rest assured, there’s good photos coming! #hifromsd #spring #themightymo #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines

Spring on the prairie in #SouthDakota is full of color and new life. We have two new foals, the cacti are blooming, the yucca is showing off and Mother Nature is letting us know that Winter was worth it. Scroll through all the images to see a recap of my morning! #hifromsd #thegraymare #spring #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd

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

I don't know that I'd love to have a bird on my back, but the horses never mind. They keep the flies away! What's something that you don't mind that others might? #throwbackthursday #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #myjobdependsonag #birds #summer

“Worry is like a rocking horse. It’s something to do that don’t get you nowhere.” — Old Western Proverb. It’s true. If we worry, we stress. If we worry we won’t try. BUT if we do something, if we are ahead of the situation or challenge, the need to worry goes away. And if we can’t be ahead or do something, then we just let it go. This is what I’m going to work on this week. Sometimes I nail not worrying, and sometimes I worry about things that I shouldn’t worry about. And the worry, folks, the way we frame it in our mind, is always, ALWAYS, worse in our head than what happens in whatever scenario that we’ve cooked up in our minds. What are you going to work on this week? #workingcowboy #workingranchmagazine #ranchlife #ranchhorse #aqha #aqhaproud #quarterhorse #ropehorse #cowboys #cowboyshit #cowboywork #igers #instagood #photooftheday #photographer #bestofequines #cowboyphotographer #getoutdoors #selfimprovement #bethebestyou #behappy #palomino #teamcanon #canon5dmarkiii #hifromsd #bluesky #cowboyphotographer

Happy Saturday! On tap for me today is cleaning the chick brooder, some construction, maybe more staining, and for sure handling my young horses. What’s your Saturday look like? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #silhouette #stormyskies #stormyweather #love #itstheweekend #happysaturday

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. What does a perfect day look like to #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #lifebetweentheseears #hifromsd #hackamorehorse #cowgirlshit #palomino #fearthebigyellowhorse #gooddays

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! Good friends are priceless. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #happy #highkey #sdc_negativespace #horsesmakemehappy #hifromsd
