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. now, let’s cross our fingers for lots of wind and sunshine tomorrow so i can head south friday morning!!! #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #lifebetweentheears #lifebetweentheseears #betweentwoears #hifromsd #ranchhorse #throughtheirears #spring #lifeisgood #mudislife #dxjurassicclassic #myjobdependsonag

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 h*****n 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

I’m looking forward to the week ahead, the challenges it may bring, the learning i’ll do, and the first big barrel race of the year! what are you hoping to get out of the coming week? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #sunflare #highkey #hifromsd

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!
i’m positive that this was winter’s last hurrah. the snow is already melting. hair is coming off the horses in handfuls. green grass is on the way! #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #snows #spring #winter #palomino #hackamorehorse #workingranch #ranchhorse #workingranchmagazine

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. how are you enjoying today? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #snow #hifromsd #snowstorm #beyourbestyou #sdc_negativespace

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
