COWBOY CRAIG'S "OREO" Isn't he magnificent! 

PAINTED COWBOY BOOTS!

June 21, 2011
Let me show you what I've been doing!  I have a little booth in  11th St. Mercantile here in Bandera and  these are just some of the items I have in my booth.  My booth hasn't been doing very well as compared to Montana where I was sold out of my painted work on a regular basis.  I just need to be discovered Oh well, maybe the cowgirl trailer will get me some good work. Check out rustycowboy2.com for more of my work.

 

OK - SO I LOVE MY GOATS-CHECK OUT THE NEW TRAILER!

June 21, 2011
Check out the new horses - big black percherons - all they do is eat! What a waste!

Blanco finds the hay nets and drags them around the ranch on his horns.  Blanco having his way with Gypsy  - obviously, he didn't get the memo from the vet that he's a unich.  Blanco likes to test his strength against our legs - I win so far, but he's only 4 months old - just wait.

My newest project - I painted a a burro trailer for Jeannie - she's going to pull it with horses - can't wait to see her going down ...

GOATS & SUCH

June 6, 2011
Remember when Blanco was a day old with his poor little paralized legs? Look how little and vulnerable he is? Now look at him sparring with his wife Gypsy.

Picture of Gypsy teaching poor old Cheyenne to graze....I guess I'd better give her some dog food!

STAGECOACH BANDERA MEMORIAL DAY PARADE

June 2, 2011
Yet another parade in Bandera - this time in our (Jeannie Parker's) reproduction Concord Coach - isn't she a beauty - wish we could have had 4 up on the coach but we only have harness for two - everything went smoothly and we enjoyed a chuckwagon lunch by Kelly Scott at the Cadillac Cottage.  The gentleman holding up the painting is "Larry the cable guy's" uncle and he swears that Larry got his accent and humor from him!  Our stagecoach is parked in his front yard for now.

We are working hard ...

BANDERA MEMORIAL DAY PARADE ON THE STAGECOACH

May 30, 2011
Well, yet another parade for Ron and I here in Bandera - the stagecoach was a big hit - too bad we didn't have 4 up, but don't have the harness yet for it - also don't know if we won our division! We came around that corner and there was a sea of thousands of people - the horses did great!  Our outrider, who by the way was a great help, was Jeannie Beauxbonnes who owns Desert Hearts Cowgirl Club Trail Rides.

After the parade, we went to Jeannie Parker's new Cadillac Cottage for rent for the gr...

BRAND NEW ANNIE JANE CHICKS

May 30, 2011
If you read earlier blogs, you heard about the tragic end of "Annie" our beloved pet chicken that was killed by our boss'es killer rat terrier's - they are now off the property, but not too soon. Anyway, we saved some of annie's eggs and put them under a ranch hen that went to sitting and lo and behold, we have 3 of Annie's kids. Wasn't easy though - the first egg hatched and the ants attacked the mom and baby - killed one baby and the other baby and mom bailed abandoning the eggs, so Ron bro...

CHUCKWAGON RACES IN BANDERA

May 20, 2011
Twin Elm dude ranch in Bandera puts on the qualifying races for chuckwagons.  I was a bit disappointed because they really werent chuckwagons, but exciting none the less.  Wes Hatch was there with his jailhouse wagon that I did the lettering on.. The Gunslingers of Bandera were there and put on a show.  I can't believe there weren't any accidents cause they were going full out!

On a sad note, Blanco is really sick - he has urinary calculi and can't pee - this is the third time we've had him to...

COWBOY CAMP HALF MOON RANCH BANDERA, TEXAS

May 2, 2011
We were invited to the Half Moon Ranch in Bandera for "Cowboy Camp".  Half Moon is a beautiful facility for boarding, trail rides and stud service. We thought we wouldn't know anyone, but to our delight, we saw alot of friends.  Didn't know that Lew from Bunkhouse Leather could play the guitar!  Wes was there with yet another interesting mule drawn vehicle.

Great food, great music and wonderful people - we can't wait for the next one.

MAY THE HORSE BE WITH YOU!
