About Me:

Here is the link to my blog.

I'm working for a cattle outfit in Northern, CA, (TUF connected) doing some cowboy and farm work. I've been here for a little over 10 months now, and I still love the work. I ride two ranch horses one whose name is Frog and the other is named Fat. They are two good ole solid couple of real ranch horses.

Lord willing I'll be able to start working on my own, working as a farrier, or some how or in some way working with horses and some of my own bovine. (cattle) ;) build my own house and a couple of barns, and little things like that.

I'm now finnished with my chinks. You can see them in my profile pictures now.

Very soon I'll start training my boss's horse, (the guy who owns the ranch). I think he just might be a good working horse with a little bit of work.

(Things I like) Horses, REAL cowboy hats, boots and spurs, chaps, leather, raw hide, BEEF!!!!!, saddles, border collies, newborn calves, flipping calves, guns, wild rags, ropes, horses shoes, old cowboy music, sage brush, brands and branding irons. And the smell of burning hide.

I was baptized on September 10, 2006.

One of my favorite Bible verses is Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

I play a couple of instruments: mandolin, stand up bass, piano, Civil War drums (snare and bass), bandolin, banjo and a little guitar.

I really like my coffee "black".

Favorite Books: 

KJV Bible, to many favorite verses to mention.

It might be the best book I've ever read. (Smoky) by Will James.
