Welcome February 2015!

February 1st, 2015 we had Dr. Michael Nunnally out, who is Certified in Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy, as "Knight" seemed a tad uncomfortable. Doc Nunnally checked him out and did his magic which "Knight" really enjoyed!  Of course Doc Nunnally found the areas that needed some tender loving care...

... and "Knight" let him know right away what felt best!

"What'cha doin' back there? That feels pretty good too!"

"Thank you so much Doc, I feel so much better!"
Friday February 6th, we took full advantage of the near 60 degree weather and headed out to check the many miles of fence on the Staple Cross Ranch before we move the cattle back this spring.  

 Army veteran Sarah J. did an excellent job riding "Roper" out on the open range!

And here we are,  February 7th, 2015 ~ Winter? What winter? Hard to believe we had snow on the ground just last week!

 NM Army Guard Sergeant, Tina G. came out and got horseback. 
Here she is finishing her "tack check" before heading to the arena with "T4".

  Cowboy Up! Director Nancy De Santis illustrates several ways to shorten and lengthen reins.
Safety, control, soft hands....nice.

Great first ride Tina!
