Life is hard sometimes...

I just wanted to let everyone know that I am no longer pregnant. I had a miscarriage last week. We are doing good just taking it one day at a time. Thank you for all the texts and phone calls that we have received we really appreciate it.

Lone Star Classic

This past Saturday Brinley showed at the Lone Star Classic in San Antonio at the Rose Palace. No, it was not another cow show but this time an Arabian Horse Show. She showed Casper in 10 & under showmanship. The class consisted of 5 kids all 10 and under.... the boy that beat her I want to see his birth certificate, I know that he drove himself there :) The class consisted of entering the ring at a trot and trotting the perimeter of the ring. She then was to line up behind the others with her horse set up waiting her turn before the judge (1st video)
When the judge nodded for Brinley to go she then had to "perform" a showmanship pattern that she had just learned the day before. (2nd video) Although I am a little bias.... SHE ROCKED IT!!! The chick took home second place in her first show and I could not be prouder!!!! Below are two videos that I took on my phone. As soon as the photographer sends me the pictures I will upload those also.

BIG Surprise!

There are plans that every family makes:
*how to manage money
*items needed at the grocery store
*how many kids to have
*when to purchase a new car
The list goes on...

Then there are the plans that God makes for your family.
After the shock wears off, you come to realize that although it is a very big surprise, and not exactly what you had planned AT ALL, it is indeed a blessing and a joy at what God truly desires for you.

Coming this fall we will be a family of 5!

Lets Rodeo San Antonio!!

The 2011 San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo has come and gone, and in the end I can say that we had an awesome run!!
We started out with Brinley and Pancho making their major show debut and they did AWESOME!

They won:
Grand Champion Open Miniature Market Steer
Grand Champion Pre-Junior Miniature Hereford Steer
Grand Champion Pre-Junior Showman!!

We are very proud of Brinley and all of her hard work that she has put in at the barn!


The next we moved in with the Junior Heifers and again we were very pleased. The kids that have bought our progeny have not failed us. Michael Hawes had Champion Heifer Calf with Baer Creek Sheza Cougar (Cougar and Michael were also Champion Heifer Calf in Ft Worth) I can't get the picture from San Antonio to download so here is her picture from Ft Worth.


Then we also had a third place with Baer Creek Grand Finale and a fifth place with Baer Creek Easy on the Eyes. The girls showed these heifers like pros against some very tough competition!

Next we leave for Houston in March and hopefully we have as much success if not more!!

Show us Your Singles!

In honor of Kelly’s Korner blog doing a showcase of singles I am posting about my Aunt Laurie.

Laurie is in her mid 40's and lives outside of Houston, TEXAS. She trains/shows Arabian horses.
Laurie is a genuine, beautiful Christian woman. She has strong Texas roots, loves animals (has 3 dogs and her horses) , Texas Country Music, and her granddaughter. She has an amazing relationship with her two grown daughters. Laurie is the type of person that you know will always listen and give advice without judgment, or being condescending. She is a great listener and has a very open mind. She loves to laugh and have a good time.

Lets just say, you would be the luckiest man in the world to hang with this sweet woman.

Soooooo if anyone out there has/is a handsome, fun, outgoing, animal-loving, 40-50's , Christian single man/father living in Texas....leave me a comment and lets see if we can hook up two amazing people!!!!!
